MP3 turbo swap

2001 Mazda mp3
Hey guys I was thinking of swapping the 2.0 for the 2.0t from the protege speed into my 01 MP3 any advice or anyone that has done the swap?


Yellow Jacket
Mazda MP3
There are a ton of posts about this on the forum, its the same motor with a turbo slapped on. The windage tray is different for the oil drain for the turbo, but most people just drain to the oil pan when adding on a turbo. Do a search and you will find your answer.
