I will also add that buying someone's sorted swap, even if a little rough around the edges, is way WAY better than starting from scratch on your own. All the odds and ends really add to the cost, so even if you have to replace a janky fuel rail, throttle body, or intake manifold, most everything you need is still there at a fraction of the price.

KMiata has an air conditioning kit available now, which is nifty, and something we'll probably add to the red miata originally for sale in this thread.

🤦‍♀️

The car had oil pressure issues and was overheating on its first outing to the state inspection station a few miles away... After successful inspection, I pulled off the oil filter to find...

And when cut open...

This was a brand new oil filter, which I had put on when I removed the oil cooler sandwich plate. Just to make sure I hadn't done the damage in my 5 miles of street driving, I checked the original filter that came with the car, where I had literally just driven it on and off the trailer. Similarly full of shiny gold bits. Looks like we bought a car with a spun bearing.

Edit: I let the previous owner know and he is helping with the cost of a new motor! What an awesome dude!

Ordering a new motor soon, I'm planning on an LKQ block unless someone has a line on a K24a2 from an Acura TSX!
