Wow. I see a BEGI intake manifold and pretty purple fuel rail. What issues, if any, did you have installing a FWD BP motor into a RWD Roadster?

So CAS, motor mounts, coolant routing are the same? Did you re-use your original Miata accessories like alternator, power steering pump, a/c compressor?

trade all the fwd stuff for miata stuff and you are golden. I did a coolant reroute at the same time. Everything is kinda self explanetory as you go.

Hi,
I am not familiar with this engine swap. What cars did this motor come from? Also, what are its specs?

tiiiight!

I was actually looking for this motor earlier today on ebay and found a 323GTX(?) engine w/ the awd tranny. I thought nasty thoughts.

why did it take 2 years to do a full days worth of work? (not trying to be an asshole)
I am interested in the swap, if it is cost effective from just boosting the 1.6, which I would imagine the swap being better from the get go. That has all the forged internals no? Does that motor use a MAP sensor? I'm not seeing the MAF, unless you relocated it for a blow through design. Or standalone, you left us in the dark on the whole setup! pretty sweet conversion, now just time to clean it up under there :D

What is left to do:

2. Buy a new carpet

3. Paint the car

4. Alcohol injection

5. Upgrade the oil cooling system.

6. Upgrade the suspension.

and.......Maybe get rid of the A/C
