Thanks for the info guys. I think I might just go to the junkyard and see if the 2006 Mazda 3 s hatchback cover will work.
Websites say it doesnít fit but Iíve been told that all L series engine should have the same head. And it looks like the first gen 3ís are an L3-VE motor. I could be completely wrong though...
But it snowed and my block is all iced up so gotta wait for that to clear first.
Yes, it should be the same. Please keep us posted on your progress.
