Post Blew my motor
Well my engine seized up this morning... not 100% sure on the cause.. it was way to cold out for me to try and figure it out so I just had it towed to my moms place. I have the 1.6 dohc.. I am looking for a good donor motor or possibly a BP motor for the right price.

Post Re: Blew my motor
I'd check my area but I doubt you'd come to Trenton. A BP would be sweet. I know a yard here that I got my ZE from with trans for $150. BP if they had one would be like $50. Should I look?

Just in case this has info to help you. viewtopic.php?f=46&t=69380&hilit=which+car+had+BP+engine
Here's the list of vehicles that engine is found in in case you like myself weren't sure.

The 1.8 L (1839 cc) BP is a dual-overhead variant of the B8. It was first found in the 1989 Mazda Familia and American-market 1990 Mazda Protege LX. This engine was dubbed BP-ZE and featured a forged crankshaft, piston oil squirters, an aluminum baffled oil pan, and Variable Inertia Charging System (VICS). This particular variant can be found in the following vehicles:

* 1989-1994 Mazda Familia GT (European & Australian Market)
* 1989-1994 Ford Laser TX3 (Australian Market)
* 1990-1994 Mazda Protege LX (with VICS)
* 1990-1991 and 1993 Mazda Protege GT (Canadian Market)
* 1990-1993 Mazda 323 (European Market)
* 1992-1993 Ford Escort LX-E
* 1991-1996 Ford Escort GT
* 1991-1996 Mercury Tracer LTS
* 1994-1997 Kia Sephia GS
* 1994-1998 Mazda Familia (Japanese Market)
* 1994-1997 Mazda MX-5/Miata (this did not have VICS until 1999)

There is also a non-performance version that is most easily recognized by its black stamped-steel oil pan. It also features a cast crankshaft, no oil squirters, a plastic oil pickup tube and less aggressive camshafts. It is found in the 1995-1998 Mazda Protege ES.

BP-4W

The 1999 Miata uses a modified BP, It has an improved intake system (a better flowing engine head because of the angle of the intake ports being changed). The United States 2004-2005 Mazdaspeed MX-5 turbo is based on this engine rather than the newer BP-Z3 and produces 178 hp (133 kW) and 166 ft·lbf (225 N·m) with slightly-reduced compression.

Applications:

* 1998-2000 Mazda MX-5/Miata
* 2004-2005 Mazdaspeed MX-5 (turbo)

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
