    Are there any known drop-in engine swaps for the 6th gen Mirage?

    Has anyone in this forum performed an engine swap of any kind yet?

    Due to space limitations I haven't heard of anyone (other than rally teams with huge budgets) try to cram a 4 cylinder in a Mirage. With the narrow engine bay it would take a bunch of modification, definitely not a bolt in. The Mitsubishi 3.0 liter V6 from the Outlander might be a easier fit (same length as the inline 3 cylinder, just wider due to the V configuration).

    LS1 it is then.

    All joking aside, it's seems as if custom fab is the only way to go. Any heads that fit on our 1.2 with little to no fab?
