Default Through a rod threw the block, what options?

Ok guys I had a boosted 1.8 96, is the 1.8 block the only one that will bolt back up? If so its fine just wanted to look at my options. I was thinking maybe a speed block or something to that extent.

thanks,

Jason

Just collect all the bits of the block from the side of the road and JB weld it back together.

I thought the speed block was the one with speed holes in it. Sounds like the op is just a few more holes away from having a DIY speedblock.

Options? ......... You have a whole, in your block ...Evaluate why it happened, Replace your engine, only option. Its not a Honda, so there is no "Frankenstien Swap" or Magic Beans under the hood of another car.

The problem is he doesn't have a whole block.

he has a hole in the block. See the difference? One is correct grammar, the other is not.

So you took THIS: https://www.miataturbo.net/general-m...-higher-78194/

And ran ALLOFIT until it popped. I guess you don't need to worry about that squeal anymore.

Now that enough time has elapsed, we can give you a straight answer.

Any B series engine will bolt to your transmission. That includes the ones installed in the Ford Escort, the Kia Sephia, etc.

Ideally, you'll grab a BP, which is the specific 1.8 engine used in the '94-'97 Miata, so that all of your accessories and manifolds will bolt right up. I'll defer to Wikipedia for a specific listing of potential donor vehicles: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mazda_B_engine#BP

Basically, anything from the list above will work, presupposing that you swap all of the accessories and manifolds over from your old engine.

You need to lay off the drugs, man. It's right there under BP-4W.
