Engine Swap

Asked by Apr 09, 2016 at 01:15 PM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Can you put a 2005 Dodge Neon SXT engine into a
Mazda RX-8?

1 Answer


Why would you even think that, even if you could the engine just would not be able to reach the RPM's the rotary can so road ability would be greatly reduced. You would be better off going old school small block and transmission than to do what your contemplating.
