    Well Last night i decided to order up some stuff for the GTX swap. I ordered a Spec Stage 3 clutch, and a Fidanza 8lb flywheel. Today I am gonna call up Corksport and see what they have in stock, and will probably end up ordering the engine, ECU, and their downpipe for the car. After that its gonna be a waiting game. I will probably order the 255 Walbro fuel pump as well some time today. Hopefully everything comes in soon and I can get to work. Today I am probably gonna go pull the power rack and start converting it over to manual like the Miata site has up. Than from there I will clean up the engine bay and prep it for the engine. What Headgasket would you guys suggest. The stock piece for the BP straight from Mazda or will one from autozone do just fine??? Or does anybody make a copper or cometic or however the hell you spell it??? Thanks for the info. Peace Jeremiah

    for the headgasket i would go with an OEM mazda one.

    if you are taking the time to pull the head off the GTX motor... i would reccomend installing a BP05 head from a stock n/a motor in its place. the intake ports flow a lot better on the NA head. just slap the GTX cams in there...

    not sure how much corksport gets for the BP26 ecu but there are two on ebay right now.

    Oh now this just sucks. Corksport is out of engines. Gonna have to look elsewhere I guess. Either that or wait till January to get one.
