I just picked up a 92 Escort GT 1.8 5sp. I don't know a lot about these cars and was hoping that some of you guys could help me out. My car has a blown head gasket. I may just put a motor in it because of high mileage. From what I have been reading, it looks like this engine is the same as a Protege and Miata engine. How interchangeable are these? Can I get one of the 35k mile japanese engines? I am not looking for any more power or anything like that out of it. This is just going to be my commuter car. Thanks in advance for the help.

Yeah you can get one of the Jap engines from a protege and drop in. Just make sure you don't spend more then like $400 for the motor or it's pretty much a rip off and you might as well do the turbo GTX swap for $800-900.

Thanks for your help. Picked up a used motor out of a 94 Scort for $350 with 47k documented miles. Hope to stuff that in this weekend and get this commuter on the road...
