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.
