V8 NC Miata! First ever done!
Here is the first ever done V8 Mazda Miata on the NC body style. Here is
info on the factory chassis! Production of the third-generation MX-5, code
NC, began May 17, 2005, for delivery in August, for the 2006 model year.
This was partially due to the declining sales of the MX-5 during its second
generation run. The exterior styling resembles the original design, but
unlike the update from NA to NB, which was mostly a nose/tail/interior
change, the NC shares no components with the NB, except for the side-panel
turning-lights on non-USA models. The lead stylist of this model generation
was Moray Callum.
The suspension has changed from a 4-wheel double wishbone setup to a front
wishbone/rear multilink setup. Technologies like traction control and
stability control were added to increase driveability. According to Car and
Driver, the NC has a skidpad number of 0.90g.
For the USA, the engine is the new 16-valve, 2.0 L (120 cu in) MZR I4,
producing 170 bhp (130 kW) and 140 lbf·ft (190 N·m) coupled to either a
5-speed or a 6-speed manual transmission or 158 bhp (118 kW) with the
optional 6-speed automatic transmission. A limited slip differential is
available with the 6-speed option. In Australia the 2.0 L (120 cu in) MZR
is offered, rated at 118 kW (158 bhp) and 188 N·m (139 lbf·ft) and the
6-speed transmission and LSD are standard. In Europe, two engines are
offered: the 2.0 L (120 cu in) MZR rated at 158 bhp (118 kW) and 188 N·m
(139 lbf·ft), coupled to the 6-speed manual transmission; and a new 1.8 L
(110 cu in) MZR, rated at 126 bhp (94 kW) and 167 N·m (123 lbf·ft),
coupled to the 5-speed manual transmission.

Time lapse of Engine Swap Ford Focus 2.0L DOHC Very cool time lapse video
This is a start to finish video of an engine swap in a 2001 Ford Focus in
time lapse. This video shows the entire process of changing an engine in
just 5 minutes. The Focus used in this video was still running great but
had 193,000 miles on it. That engine was replaced with a 15,000 mile
engine from a totaled 2003 Ford Focus. This process is much easier when
you have access to a life but can still be done by placing the car on jack
stands and lowering the engine out. Unfortunately most of the work of
switching out the transmission and accessory drive was done out of frame in
the middle of the video. The extra work at the end of the video was to
trouble shot why the new motor was idling at 3,000 rpm. That was cause by
a stuck idle air control valve from where the engine had been in storage
for so long.
The work was done by myself, Brian Woehler with help from my dad William
"Ray" Woehler at the Wabash Autobody headquarters.
