    Putting a different manufacturers engine in another car ruins the spirit of the car imo

    Putting a Nissan engine or any engine not made by Mazda in a Mazda car ruins the spirit of the car.

    Only exceptions to the rule would be Ford Engines and any other company that Ford Owns.

    I get what you were trying to say, but i don't understand the point behind it.

    How is an RX-7 with a Miata engine any worse than an RX-7 with an LS1 or similar?

    I'm not talking performance here. I'm talking about the spirit of the car. :hsd:

    You can't buy an Adidas track suit and wear Pumas.

    based on all your previous posts in cars threads, i'm going to go out on a limb and say you wouldn't even have the skills to pull a swap like this off.

    so, why ask?:mamoru:

    Of course I would be paying a shop to do this work. I owned a near 400HP 240SX in the past powered by SR20. Widebodyed etc etc

    who cares if it's faster and performs better overall. you're adding 'spirit' if anything. :o

    I wouldn't have picked a mazda for my platform.

    This is assuming of course I know how to work on cars. :o

    Mazda makes some fantastic chassis.

    But despite what some of the rotards will tell you, they're still overshadowed in the powerplant department.

    Ricers would be too worried about their stylish headlights then about how much power they are making
