I wonder if you could fit a FWD SOHC B6 head on it? Presumably it would have a more econo grind to the camshaft.

Looks like it will!

The guy that did the G10 swap is "fujioko". He's on here but hasn't been here in a long time. Fuel Economy, Hypermiling, EcoModding News and Forum - EcoModder.com - View Profile: fujioko

He did a B3 swap from a Festiva on another Miata. The B3 is a de-bored version of the B6 in the Miata, SOHC 8 valve too. All the B series engines share a bell housing bolt pattern.


Festiva guys basically give away B3's.

Looks like he also swapped an RX7 5th gear in. Not sure how much difference.

'05 Outback XT, 19 mpg

BP-turbo 93 Festiva (long gone)
