What do you mean are they "really" any different than the stock ones?

Have you been told that they are, or did you arrive at this conclusion yourself?


Let me make this simple for you:


The ONLY BP that would have a hope in hell at holding 350hp is what came in the Familia GTR. Not the GTX, not a Mazdaspeed anything, but the Familia GTR ONLY.

It's called the BPD. There were 2000 made, ever. Buying one is more expensive than building your bottom end.

If you want 350hp, just build a bottom end and stop ******* around.

Did I say, "Almost all?"
Did I say, "Except the Mazdaspeed?"

EDIT: Familia GTR was not available for sale anywhere in North or South America.

I feel like Ford engine swaps should be easy in a Miata, because Ford owns Mazda anyways.
