    Default DISI MZR: 2.3 Engine to a rear wheel drive application

    Sorry If this has been covered before ( I did search the forum ) but has anyone done a rwd conversion with a 2.3 MPS engine? I know alot of conversions using a Duratec and was wondering what a 2.3 MPS might do ? What gearbox may be used etc etc - Anyone know of such a conversion?

    I'm not immediately aware of any examples to point you towards, but I think if you can do it with a duratec you could do it with an MZR - same gearboxes etc would bolt up. Did you have a project in mind?
    Not certain, but I believe it can be done. I'd rather like to shoehorn one into an MX-5 myself.

    I've always wondered as well about this conversion, ever since I got my MPS I've wanted to convert it to rwd but how safe will it be to do so?

    I'd expect it to be easier to convert to AWD than RWD....
    With some expensive stuffing around...it's been done.
    I was tempted myself. When I win the lottery....
