Why pay a premium for the "JDM" engine? Give CR.net sponsor Planet Miata a call to see what engines they have in stock. None of us know where you live since your profile is incomplete but if you're like me it can be tricky finding a Miata motor locally. Planet Miata is good people.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I thought that miatas where made in japan and came to the states on a boat? I mean, thats pretty JDM to me.

I agree with planet miata though. get one from them and with the money and time you save build it up...by the time its built a JDM one might just be making its way across in a box.

Also avoid new crate motors from Mazda- I've heard that they are not the same quality castings as they once were. The best route is a seasoned block and rebuild it from there. Expect about $3000 for a high quality rebuild (mius parts) or ~$1500 for a boneyard motor complete.

It's not like a Honda where Japan got some hot-shot Japan-only engine, a B6 or a BP is the same no matter where it came from (for the most part).

i could get a japanese domestic engine for my Miata for $550. it has around 55k miles on it though and have 6 weeks warranty after installation in case anything happens. OR i can rebuild my broken one for about $800+. which option is better? as in stability, liability, etc.? is it riskier to get the new engine (55k miles)?

thanks everyone for your responses!
