I'm about to start looking at motors for my 94 Mx-3. Looking to build something different. I was looking at the Kj-Zem motor. Does anyone know if it will fit in the Mx-3? Thank you for any help. This car is being built primarily for Auto-x so figured a supercharged motor would be my best bet as well as something different.

Yes, it will. If you search here, theres 2 members that have done KJ swaps into Protege's. Your only issue would be hood clearance isnt going to happen without something drastically done. The motors are pretty lackluster, and the superchargers failure rates are higher then my cities HS graduation #'s. You would be alot better off doing a KLZE swap and get about the same HP.

Ok thank you. Probably explains why I found it cheap lol. The kl or even bp was my first route but then saw the kj when I was searching for one of those and figured it's done less and the supercharger would be beneficial for auto cross.
