93 escort to rotary swap

i have done some research and i have found that a 93escort has the same motoras a 93 miata..and i was just wondering if anyone knows if there has ever been a rotary swapped into a miata, and if so would that be able to be done on this ford...it sounds like it will work, but i want to see if anyone has actually seen it done

Re: 93 escort to rotary swap

Ummm good question. But, wouldn't you also have to change the Escort into a rear wheel drive car ? I've have never seen a Mazda rotary engine in a front wheel drive car.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....

Sure has, a company here in Australia was making the Bullet Roadster...
Choice of 13B twin turbo rotary or lexus v8 in an Miata (MX5 here in Australia)...

But he now concentrates on the Lexus v8 conversions.

'67 Mustang V8 4sp... what fun to drive!
