When I saw your title, I thought of this.



Then I thought you would get banned immediately for the fail noob superepost.


But now I like your car, and see potential for it to be bad *** so welcome.

I like your choice in nifty cool mazdas. Honestly, I never really gave a damn about anything FWD until recently. I didn't know there were that many cool FWD swaps out there. I have been looking for something cool to do in a 929. That would be a hell of a DD with about 400 hp.

what year 929?
im sure a KL V6 could be put in one without much effort. ad a decent turbo setup and 400whp is completely possible

How was the klze swap in the 323? I know that's the thing most people go with if they have the 6 cylinder mx-3, but never saw/thought of putting it in a 323.

I Like RWD mazdas and I think a 929 would be a cool car that i could shove 4 people in comfortably. I was thinking a KL swap would be cool, but I also thought that car would be a prime candidate for an LS swap, but, that is far off... prob 3-4 years, but definitely my next project.

aside from swapping body harness and the lack of good radiator setups it was fairly easy. i changed gears to the MX3 because i needed the room in the budget for school and such. boosting a BP is by far cheaper but not as much fun.

an LS swap would be fun, but considering the similarities between the 929 motor and the KL motor, I would be hard pressed to pass it up.
