Has anyone thought of putting in a J-spec engine into an LX or DX?? I was looking online at cork sport mazda performance, and i found a "$1875 1.8L T4cyl (BPturbo) w/approx 210 HP (from GTR) *** " Anyone tried this? 210 horses out of a 1.8?? holy @#$% Batman!! that's not a bad price either.... Seriously, does anyone know if that would be a straight swap, or would you have to modify??? Thanks for any info in advance.

I talked to corksport about the engines they have, but they said it would be VERY DIFFICULT to do. You'd need a lot of shit. The GTR engine is out of a Protege (aka Familia), so maybe you could ECU, wiring harness, engine mounts, cross members, etc from a wrecked one. The only catch is that the Protege here didn't have a turbo that i know of, maybe a 323 GTX would.

The one that everyone is talking about (well me mostly, i think) is the code name FE3 not FS_ZE (170Hp) which you are refering to. That engine comes out of a i think 98-00 Capellas. The FE3 is the j-spec engine for 1st gens it came in the GTs in Japan. It came in two flavors, 140Hp and 170Hp (RARE!), 2.0L 16v. I know http://www.importengines.com had one.

wtf is going on in this forum......................

mythoz, you have a 2nd gen, ask you question in the 2nd gen forum!

everyone else, read!!

The only engines that will swap into are cars are:
2.2L F2
2.2L F2T
2.0L FE3 (or the Kia Sportage 2.0L DOHC)
3.0L Vulcan from the probe.
(theres a diesel I didn't include as there not available in North America)

and......

thats it!!

The rest is a total custom swap.......
cut this that and everything else, and weld here and there while your at it.
