Was just browsing ebay and i spotted this beauty.

Shame about the rear spoiler, but other than that this car gets 10/10! I love it!!!

his response when i asked him if he had any power figures. This sound about right???

Hello Bruce, I have never put this car on a dyno (rolling road) to get exact power readings. All I can tell you is that this engine is rated at 145BHP stock. The gearbox is also quite close, so the 0-100km/h is respectable (it ain't no Supra/Skyline though!). I bought a larger turbo (which I sold recently) and other ancillaries to bring it up to 180BHP, but to be honest with work and family I never get the chance to play with my car anymore. Hope this answers your question. Cheers.

If you go to the main page of mx-3.com ( not the forums ) and click on engine swap information there is a guide on swaping in the 1.8 4cyl engine from the mx-5 but it sounds quite complicated.
I would have a look through the 4 cyl pages on the forum to see what you come with.
Like you bruce im not that mecanically minded so i just try to stay focused on the V6 info.!!
