My engine kicked the can, and I need a cheap 1.8 that is workable that I can build. I am willing to drive a couple of hours.

If you are back around this way before you get a new engine let me know. I have a 94 engine with 114k on it chilling in my garage.

Don't know if you have considered it, but a 91-96 Escort GT engine is virtually identical to the Miata engine. The only thing that you have to be careful of is the SNC on the early '91 models. I have one installed in my '94 and documented it very well on m.net. Mine was a 93 Escort GT engine with 51K miles that I bought for $250. It had been sitting on the shelf since 2000. By the time I sold the throttle body, valve cover and my old long block, my net into the engine was $107. When installed, there is no way anyone would know that it wasn't a genuine Miata engine.

You will have to move everything over from your Miata engine over, and chase threads in some bolt holes, but it's a lot less work than driving for hours to pick up a Miata 1.8. Mine looked like new when I pulled the valve cover and pan and runs like a new one. PM me of you need a link to the thread.
