    So, i've been doing some thinking on how to best address the current mechanical issues with the 1.6, I've read up a bunch on flying miatas 1.8 swap, but I'm curious as to whether anyone has done that swap with a 1.8 engine harness and ECU into a 1.6 car

    So what happened to your current engine? Did I miss a post where it blew up?

    It's got crank wobble, needs an oil pump, valve stem seals and lifters

    Awesome man! Is it a vvti motor?
    Also, are there plans to do anything to the internals before the swap?

    99 BP4W, I might do a slight refresh, it's got 125,000 miles with a brand-new head gasket and the head was cleaned up and looked over by a machine shop. T-Belt and Water pump looked good and were done at 100k. It's a little dirty on the outside but cams looked good and I believe the guy. I may do some slight porting on the intake manifold but I'm not sure that's even worth it.
