You can't really get *new* engines for FD's, unless you're talking 20k original miles on the car itself. Most people say they got a new engine and it's either a 3rd part rebuild or a Mazda Reman. If it's a Mazda Reman, beware, there's been a lot of talk about them being pretty badly done. If it's a rebuild, find out who did it. A rebuild can be great, or can be ****, depending on who did it / what kind of care they took when they did it.
