Well, it may be a pain in the ***... but if you are really going for it, make a build thread... it would be really interesting to see

You didn't answer my questions.

You sound like a billion other dreamer noobs that like to talk about this and that without much substance. We don't care about the engine itself: its old and not impressive, and actually even older technology than our already pretty mediocre engines.

Have you swapped one into a miata? How many engine swaps have you done in a miata?

If I'm coming off harsh, its because literally 1% of n00bs that claimed all sorts of things around here actually did them or even know what they're talking about. The others are just like "yeah yeah fasho bro's I'ma swap dis here motor and dat dere setup and have a sweet JDM-Tyte whip y0"

If you are already in the middle of this swap and have pictures/proof then disregard this post and post up your build

You just described the BP engine that is already in your car.

Other than the madtyteswagjdm factor, what's the point in this swap? Just to be different?



In for pictures of fail and/or cats.

Based on your posts so far I've concluded that you do not posses reading comprehension and/or have ADD.

I don't care about other cars. I asked you how many swaps you've done in a miata, and whether you've already started on the project or just blowing hot air into our buttholes.

*edit: you're a "drifter". that explains everything

Yes to be differ and I also already had this engine from a kit car build so it will be cheaper than building up a BP.

Why such hostility if you are interested in swap then you need to read and not get so irritated about how many swaps I have done in a Miata, if you read then you would know that this is my first Miata....

This will be fun.
You're "one of those".

It will be tough for you on this forum. We don't like faggy "do it just to be different" types cause they're usually full of poop and all talk.
