    Familia Interplay X build thread

    Right, I'm new here so bear with me, this is the just a few pics to show what I've done over the past few months, I'll post the spec later wen I can remember everything I did so far Its my first Mazda of many hopefully,

    It's a 93 Familia Interplay X 1.5 dohc BG5P engine, it's fairly quick for what it is, I've beaten many SIR Civics and MiVEC Colts. This looks like a good site and you all seem to know your stuff. Enjoy

    This is when I bought it

    And how it is now

















    I hope you like it, cause I do !!!!
    I want to do an mx3 rear subframe swap and would appreciate if someone could clarify what needs to be done, I cant find a how to thread on this. Look forward to getting to know Mazda BG fans and hopefully can be pointed in the right direction for parts in Europe. Thanks

    Nice!

    Can you post a picture of your engine? We don't have those engines over here.

    wow, it looks identical to the bp05 1.8 dohc motor that is over here.

    And it sure looks weird seeing the master cylinder on the right hand side of the car. I'm so used to seeing it on the left hand side because we have left hand drive.

    Also, what is the little blue canister on the left side of the engine compartment?

    Yeah, they use the Same head and a different bottom end, not just bored! I think the 1.5 has more hp too.


    They're Spoon reservoir socks on the power steering and brake fluid tanks, looks a bit funny in the pic.
