Mazda MX-3 and Mazda MX-6 These two sporty models have become popular cars for import tuners due to the availability of parts, the low price, and the smooth lines.

Default 1993 Mazda Mx3 1.6L 16v

So the day has finally come. I have in my hands a bad *** mx3. Its a faded black and has no spoiler. Also the motor is Japapnese! Im excited for this you guys!!

I got this car about a week ago for 200$ can you believe it?
i got it from my friend Alan who had given up on the beauty. Trashed inside and out. None the less i took a chance on it and here i am.

My back lights don't work. :/ then on top of that my turn signals don't work. :/ then on top of that the car runs too accelerated after a recent timing belt change he had a mechanic do on it, the sliding seat belt on the passenger is malfunctioning making the battery drain. I just bought the CHILTON manuel for a rebuild i plan to do on the block and head. I plan to do some re-wiring and i figured i might as well just a fall in love with the car.

My question is, for you guys that know, can i put an Rx-7 wing on this beast or no?

You mentioned the possibility of rebuilding the engine. It would cost a LOT of money to do it right! Before going down that path, I'd do a compression test or leak-down test on the engine. If it passes, it may be fundamentally OK, in which case, a rebuild would be unnecessary.

As for the spoiler, I'd hold off on that. Check around and see how much it will cost to fix your turn signals and motor-driven seat belt. Then decide if you want to put money into stuff to dress up your new acquisition. I had a Mazda MX-3 just like yours. 'Bought it new in 1994 and sold it in 2009. It gave me great service and it was a cool car, too!
