It seems to me he use stock bearings, I will ask him and let you know if he had his crank turned.

My boy talked to the guy at the machine shop and they compaied a Kia crank to a Probe crank and the oil holes are differant so the rod bearings could be getting starved for oil. For his fix he is gong to try elongating the holes to help oil flow. It will probably be a while before he gets to it though, he's having to much fun with his new MX6. It was already running 13.2s when he bought it.

I am going to pick up my block from the machine shop Monday and drop off my head. When I get all the parts to assemble the short block I will start taking pics and posting progress. I will start a new thread since I am not building a stroker yet. I'm getting excited to get this thing back on the road.

anyway, aside from gary's possible diesel swap, there is a direct swap with the slightly larger and more torquy Mazda 2.2L engine. you just swap the block and all the internals of the block, including crank, pistons and connecting rods. you bolt all the Sportage parts directly to the 2.2 block, including head, intake, accessories, then the block to the bellhousing. so far, the only person we know that has done this is Darren Skilton, but 2.2's should be cheap enough that we will begin to see more. i think the ratings for the 2.2 with Kia head and peripherals is around 170-175 HP and around 180-185 LB-FT or more.


So, Dave Scott posted this in 2002. This would be an amazing jump in HP. Which 2.2 mazda engine was he talking about, was it from the B2200?

im looking for about 300 max hp which i think is easily obtainable


That 300 HP is going to rip your whole drive train to shreds. I hope you already thought of that.

It depends how you drive it. If you have the 5sp the Getdrag is good for about 250hp and the rear axle has seen lots of power coming from turbo RX7s. If you drive it hard you will mess thing up (I know I would drive it to hard) <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />. I just want mild with about 6-8 psi, The Kia would live and I could go with bigger tires.

exactly what i have been thinking.

if i can get around 300hp, then i would have better hp and tq lower in the curve and wouldnt have to be at 5k rpms all the time to get my tires moving.

essentially to with some of the mods i have going rite now, the higher hp will help a lot with highway driving to and from the trails. and i will be able to stay off the skinny pedal more on the trails with gearing
