what kind of performance are you going for with an engine swap? you can do a turbo at 7psi boost a BPT bottom end from a 323 and get 200horsepower. thats the route im going. but a decent swap would be an engine from a KL-ZE/ J-Spec MX-6 with a manual transmission. Im not sure what shop would do it in Winnipeg, but id expect to pay a decent amount of money to do it.

KL-03:
Mazda 626 & MX-6 - 1993-97
Ford Probe GT - 1993-97
162 to 167hp @ 5600 to 6000 rpm (*), CR 9.2:1
(*) Varies from one model to another

KL-ZE is to be found ONLY in J-spec cars (ie. Right hand drive, Japan and Australia, maybe imports in UK)

Eunos 800 (Mazda 626 & MX-6) - 1998+, Only in Japan
Xedos 9 (Mazda 929 & Millenia)
200 hp @ 6500 rpm, CR 10:1



NOTES:
2.5L KL-ZE engine only ever came in Automatic Transmission equipped models of the Eunos 800.
A rare find but was also available on J-Spec, MX-6's with A Manual Transmission.
I have found at least 5 variations of the "standard" KL and 3 on the 'ZE. This does not include the still born KL-T or the KL SOHC which is rated at 158hp but the torque much higher than a DOHC. There is also a KL Diesel and TDI. The SOHC and Diesels were never used in North America or Europe.

Hope that all helps

if you have a 4 cyl scrap what the guy said about the kl engines..... they will be way to much work to put into a 4 cyl body. if you have a 4 cyl go with a bp. just search around on here and you ll find what you need. if its a v6 then go with the kl de or klze.... just call around to performance shops and see if theyd do the job. try motion performance on route 90.

X2 for Jackson. They're probably the only ones in the city who really know the KL engines (including mazda, most of them have no clue about the KL's)
I took my car to them to work out the bugs, and they're great with these cars. My car is actually there right now getting the final bugs worked out... should have it back to have some fun by tonight :mrgreen:
