    Wow love how you did the manifold. The engine looks ready to drop in. Did you use stock size pistons? Anyone ever had a meet in Illinois?

    Thanks, just need to put the timing belt and odds and ends on. I used '01 Miata pistons and bumped compression to 10:1. No real big Escort meets. but I know many Mazda and BP junkies in the Rockford and Madison area.

    Made lights for a Facebook friend. He shared me some pics.

    Wish there were more Illinois members. It would be nice to have even a small meet. Be even better if I had a GT but good ones around here are non existent.

    The Miata pistons are the same dimension. My block was in tolerance, so it wasn't bored and I ran standard size pistons.
