    MAZDA BPT into a ??? project

    this story begins with a facebook post... Cypher, a workshop in Perth's southern suburbs had shut it's doors and the administrators were liquidating...

    I was trolling the list of parts and stumbled across a Mazda BPT 1.8L motor. I used to have one of these in a 323 so at $50 I couldn't pass it up.

    Here is the receipt for proof.




    Transport back to the workshop cost more than the motor, but I assume that isn't included.







    And here she is, complete bar fuel rail. Thankfully the 'loan car' from my workshop actually has a complete BPT stored in the boot... in pieces :D

    And I have access to looms, ecus, bosch 040 in a 323 cradle, engine mounts and lots of goodies that a mate who used to play with these cars has sitting in his shed. Pricing them up might be the hard part!




    So now all I need to find is a cheap 323/laser or 121 to get this into!

    We're thinking 121 > BG 323 > Laser Wagon > Any other laser


    Oh and pray that this thing runs... turns over OK...

      Actually I am pretty sure Scali is going to bugger off his soon for virtually nothing. I will ask tomorrow.

                  Lots to do to a KA laser, you need to shave the chassis rail to fit the 1.8L, custom mounts, run efi fuel lines and modify the fuel tank to install a fuel pump (EFI for that shape was restricted to the BD Familia 1.5 Turbo... very very rare)

                  121 seems the best bet for lightness with some modifications required

                  BG 323 / KF-KH laser would bolt straight in, loom plugs in (one wire needs changing?)

                  BF Mazda (KC-KE Laser) I have done before mating the loom was the hardest part

                        Still hunting the quokka, gumtree etc for something with rego for $500

                        The asking price for a manual 1.5L efi bubble seems to be 3k. WTF

                          what about a festy? will it fit in one of those too? festys seem cheaper than 121's

                            I don't think it will fit in a Bubble without severe cutting of the chassis rail(s). BP is just too long for the narrow bay of the bubble...

                            I looked into this swap for my 121 but it all sounded too hard. B5 DOHC + turbo would fit and use the B3 gearbox.

                              No cutting of rails required apparently, need to notch one corner of the sump to fit an axel. box bolts up
