I had a festiva a loooong time ago - it was a great little car. it was an '88 so it still had just a 4spd stick. I went from it to a '66 Fury complete with a big block. talk about a night and day difference in vehicles
fwiw, some of the yota 1.8l parts swap down to the 1.5. The throttle bodies swap and are bigger bored
heh, speaking of mazda engined blue ovals . . . my '03 Focus is one of the early PZEV ones - so it has the 2.3l mazda based duratec. basically the same engine as in mazda3's, but without the variable cam timing. Mine has ~125k on it and is ticking along just fine - a buddy of mine just turned 300k in his pzev focus
I got a B6T sitting in a Festiva. Probably going to pull it and stuff a BP from a Protege as its
NA and easier to find parts for. A few mods will bump it up to 140-150hp. Im using the G series transmission from the Capri because the Festiva one is made of glass.
