im pretty sure you got an mx3 engine
Yeah, sounds like the 2.0 V6. You may have gotten the shaft. I'd call wherever you bought it from immediately and see what they have to say.

It is indeed a K8 1.8L V6. Same as standard MX3.

That is 100% not correct...in the family of "K" engines there are:
K8 1.8L V6
KF 2.0L V6
KL 2.5L V6

that is it AFAIK
unless you've got a frankenstein motor that someone built...that is not the way Mazda would have put it together.
