I want a 2jz with a super-1000 turbo pushin 70psi and while we're at it lets make it RWD and then go driftin!! It's the JDM way....I say we get some power outta our 2.3L (already bigger than any many motors in any car in our class) Can't we ever be happy with what we have...well unless we're talking about parts availabilty :?. Just take some time and thank the car gods for they have blessed u with.
Putting the protege speed engine into our car is one of the worst things we could do money wise. My friend has an 03 MSP and even he doesn't like his motor... It really limits the cars possibilities... If you follow the msprotege forums, you can read all the horror stories.
On the other hand... why not rebuild our engine so it's robust and then turbo it. This seems like a direction a lot of us head... Then all we need is a reliable way to get that power to the ground and we'll be OK.
Not much of a need to do it, unless you're a shop trying to do something different. I'd just boost it if I had the money, but if I had the money I would prefer to swap a more powerful engine into my miata . The mazda3 doesn't seem seem like a worthwhile car to do a swap, since it's kinda heavy and FF cars aren't very easy to drive on the street when they have a lot of power.
^^^ u beat me to saying this. Outta the last 12 post that pic showed up 4 times....that means it's a Very popular swap....guess I gotta go with a ej20tt and convert to AWD. I mean just to be "different"
