Right? Let's hit the wrecking yard with a couple battery powered sawzaws on a half-off day and find something that will work for CHEAP!

Doesn't seem too far fetched!

Got another engine to think about! The Mazda K series! Really quite small in stature! At 1.8 to 2.0 liters for a V6. Pretty high revving engine wit 143 to 167 hp and 116 to133 pounds of torque! The 1.8 had a red line somewhere north of 9000 rpm in some MX-3 models too! The 1.8 produced 143 hp @ 7000 rpm, and 116 lbs of torque @ 5500 rpm. The 2.0 was at167 hp @ 7000, and 133 lbs @ 5500 rpm. After the 2.0 liter the blocks started growing. The K series uses alloy block and head, with the block being a 2 piece split at the mains. 60 degree V6, narrow angle valves. Mazda used a VRIS, variable resonance intake system, using manifold accoustics to tune the intake to the engines RPM.  I've wanted one since I read about them years ago. I drove an MX-3 with one of the higher revving engines. I think the rev limiter never kicked in, I was shifting at around 9700 RPM! No need to go farther than that 'cause the power dropped sharply after 9000 RPM. Sounded awesome! Even with the factory intake system. Hmmmm, 9000 RPM V6 with ITB's? In your car Bevin? In an MR2?

If you wanna go Turbo with a crap load of power, Chee likes the 2-liter Turbo Mitsu engine. 210 HP stock, up the boost for 300 hp easy all on stock parts



Here is a swap page for Chee's Stario (has good pics and info): http://www.projectzerog.com

Here is a 4G63 in a 1973 MG Spridget swap:
