The '86 13B used the same tranny as the -SE. AFter that, I think they changed it.
A 13 B engine will bolt up to your transmission. You will need a oil pan from a GSL-SE, because one of the motor mounts will be on the side not the front. I think you also need a different front housing.
I think its like this.
The '86 used the same tranny as the '85 -SE. However, any 13B engine will be a perfect match to any 1st gen tranny, EXCEPT the 13B turbo. They used a different tranny and different bell housing pattern. Keep posting and consult a mazdatrix calalog or www.mazspeed.com; ultra garage, for more information.
corksport sells them for 850 for 88 year ones and 950 i think for 89+. i dont know if you would want to go this route with the motor unless you use the block for n/a cause it can be a pita to get everything hooked up in a first gen..
Originally posted by Turbo FB. Not to be rude but your wrong about 13BT it will bolt to a first gen trans. a 20B will not.
Cool, I wasn't so sure of that either, but the TII tranny is not a direct bolt on to an N/A engine, correct? I'm pretty sure you can't use a TII tranny on a 13B OR a 12A w/o some modifications. The only different trans. that will work is the coveted GTUs close-ratio.
When you get you motor it will NOT come with the comp. All your getting is a (complete) engine. Youll need to source the other parts, I found this to be the most difficult, you put adds up looking for your parts and you get a 10 to 1 deadbeat ratio.
What is your budget?
What trans are you going to run?
If stock 12a, Iv got an extra flywheel.
For the clutch/flywheel set-up tell me what year motor & the year and type of trans and ill tell you wich flywheels you can run.
Im still planning for the swap, trying to get a firm idea of what is required. I plan on putting in around 2k into the car,give or take, but thats not till later this year. I will probably run the 12a tranny if i can get away with it. The car is an 85 with a 12A, and i want to go to a 89 13BT engine.
ok so ive swaped engine and trans got racing beat front engine mount and oil pan and fabricated trans mounts so good there gutted car welded roll cage and started wiring got ecu under passenger floor board got it down to 20 wires and rewired all lights and etc. installed 15 gallon alumin fuel cell
from what ive read the required fuel pump is 110 psi? is this true and where do i get one after market.
also drive shaft what the hell do i do here ne one got spec on one so i can get it made?
next wiring diagram would be great just need to know the necessities for the enigine plan on installing push to start
finaly is my rearend good enough ive been told to put a ford 9 inch with locking dif is that advisable or what are the options ?
