I probably have been roaming online forums much longer than you have been on the internet, so you don't have to tell me about the search button.

Stock 1.6 LSD, 4.30 ratio with 108,000 miles. About 10,000 of them at no less than 12 psi.

Daily driven hard and put away wet!

My boost comes on late so it launches pretty soft... most of the time.

If I bought that from you, its a safe bet that I'd use some frequent flier miles and marriott points to pay you a visit and put a blade through your aorta.

I have no ideal what mine is. But it is a smooth case 1.6L. I've driven it for a few months with no problems. I did pick up a used 1.8L rearend cheap, When the opertunity arrived. You can find flipped 1.8L cars on craigslist for 450-$700. Part it, and make a profit, and keep what you want. It takes no time to swap it. I wouldn't pay $800 for a rearend.
I'm scared of the torsen. My car is bad about wheel hoping. And everyone says the torsen will pop.
So dang'ed if you do, and dang'ed if you don't.

I'm shooting for 250hp.
I wanted a car that will pull a 13 with great mpg. I think I have accomplished that.
I drove mazda speed and wasn't impressed. I think my car would outrun it at 6psi.

The 1.8l brake swap is cheap and supe easy. I plan on doing the budget 11inch vw rotor upgrade for the fronts.
But for steet use, I have no complaints on the 1.6l brakes.

It is all about the deal you get, your budget, and how much wrench time you want to put in.

the 1.8L is better bang turn key.

Look around, find the better car for you.

You also know your capibilities. If you dont know how to change brakes, and are scared to try to work on somthing new.

you may want to get a 1.8L.

But both cars are good. And a 1.6L rearends are dirt cheap. And a dime a dozen.

There are certain things here that are band wagons. Everyone wants a ms, they are popular here.
On miata.net, they like pc pro, at my house I like dancing with my dog.

There is nothing wronge with a 1.6L. But yes the 94 is a better platform to start from.

But in my case, I can do all my own work. And I got a yellow miata with 17inch rims, like new tires, exposed cam gears valve cover, headlight duct, cold air induction, a nice strut tower brace, the chrome door thing-y's, fogg lights,style bar, racing beat swaybars and springs, biliet shift ****, alpine radio, alarm system, clean interior, and 2 1/2 inch mandrenal bent exhaust.And I drive it on road trips dependably. It is a DD


See, that is what you look for. Somebody has put a butt load into it. And they just get peanuts cause it was raced. Ohwwwww, it was raced.

heck yea, it was raced, now you are saving $$$$$$$!!!$$$$$ on supension, roll bars, etc etc.
If the motor goes out. Who CARES...... a 1.6L is like 250-$400 for a good motor.

But, I have contemplated throwing in my spare 1.8L myself. But not for a long time.

Get a good deal, make sure the interior is super clean, and the body is straight.

Tops and seat covers are cheap. but the body and panels make the car.

Thanks for the awesome detailed reply. I am a little crazy with saving money. so I spent a long time looking for the best deals, I waste so much time doing that. but if the opportunity arises for either a 1.8 rear end for a whole 94-97 miata, I'll probably go for it.

I am really still unsure which turbo route I am going yet. I am leaning toward the greddy for ease and since it's pretty well known...I was planning to get $200 ebay t25, but haven't found cheap downpipe yet, all the downpipes on ebay are the 4 bolt 14b stuff...oh well...keep looking.

new questions...

Does a 1.8 rear end from an automatic work? drive shafts and the half shafts?

Thanks,

If I buy it from a healthy donor car, the 1.6 rear end can back into the 1.8 right?

1.6 motors with auto tranny had a little less power if I remember correctly, is that the same case with 1.8's?

1.8 cars with the auto tranny came with an open differential, not a Torsen.

I believe the axles and rear end work, but I'm certain the driveshaft will not. If you have a cheap RX7 clutch lsd, then this is a good option.

Miata.net has a garage section, before the forums, and it has a broken down explaination. It is pretty good, I would read that.

I bet the driveshaft would be wrong.

I have driven a few 1000 miles on my car with the 1.6L rearend. I'm in no rush to swap it.

Show a little empathy when taking off, let out of the gas inbetween gears, that will take you far.
You can still lay the rubber down on the road.

I would put my money first into the turbo, everything else is liveable.

After your turbo'ed, then worry about the rearend. You never have a guarentee with any miata rearend. The torsen can pop. You are taking a 90-100hp car and getting insanely twice the hp it was made for.

That is why, I plan on making something special. LOL The RX7 internal into the 1.8L .But that is down the road...........

Greddy is cheap used. But if you can find a used begi or FM, that would be better, and save $$$ for your hp addiction later........

There is a dude that has a used FM manifold and Gt2560 and down pipe for sale. He wouldn't part it. I wanted the ceramic coated manifold.

That would be good. It was like $900. That is a good deal. I bet you can get it for $800.00
Then add the DIY Intercooler.

Are you talking about this one? https://www.miataturbo.net/forum/t28112/


That is pretty good. All I would need is:

injectors: 160
MS PNP: 700
Universal Intercooler kit, ebay style - $150-$200
GM boost controller: 50

That's right around my 2k budget!
