I see there are alot of threads that a mx-6 2.5l engine with exchange easily but Is it ossible to drop an rx7 turbo engine in or is it easier installing the mx-r engine and trying to add a conversion.
Or is there any standard turbo engine that would fit easily.
Thanks for any responses, i want to have everything decided before I start.
id help with the rx7 swap, then u can be part of welly developments unusual conversion,
engine in horizontal,different gear box, wiring is going to be a fucker but who cares.
rx7 engine have a few problems, rotary arms, and if u blow the tips thats 3k to folk out.
y would u want too, the rx7 is sexy as it is!!
modifying is about me different!
my mums boyfriend thinking about making a rx7 powerd trike :shock:
As previously said DIFFERENT is the key. Need I say more. I know the RX-7 is class performance standard so is the mx-3 for original looks, so smash then together and its new.
Each to their own, dont come crying to me when the engine gets to 60k and pops!lol

cannot physically be done well obv anything cna be done if u got the money.
but for ptracticality sake just get a klze nos +turbo and u got more bhp then an rotary with half the cost. also check mx-3 i believe the engine dosent even fit in our cours the only way to do it would be to have a tubualar frame chasis too make the body look like a mx-3 if u check mx-3.com they have a picture showing it. but like i said your talking big BIG BIG Money to get it done
Cheers KAMI, guess your answer is straight and too the point. I was playing with ideas trying to decide BEFORE I start, I want something new. But don't want to get a mortgage to do it. Fair points back to more stupid ideas.
What about a mazda xedos engine im sure there is a 2.5 version, but wouldnt know if its better than the mx 6 2.5?

The simple answer is how much money do you have?
You can either do for:
£900 - KLZE (197 BHP) and the easiest swap by far. Engine, CU, Clutch, Service.
£??? - KLDE/KLZE Turbo (250+ BHP) This is a custom fabrication swap, not easy at all. Price depends on how much you intend to fabricate your self, but £2,500 - £3,000 is a rough price if you get a garage to buy it all and do it for you. Engine, Clutch, Gearbox, Axels Dyno, Custom Turbo Manifolds, Fueling
£??? - BPT/BPD (300+ depends on what turbo you go for) You can get big BHP out of this engine as it has been done in the past, but is not a straight forward swap. To get it up and going your looking at around £3,000 Engine, Axels, Clutch, Dyno, ECU, Wiring, gearbox, Turbo, Fueling
gt4 engine anyone 8)
