Though about this for myself but my car stops fairly well (when the pads aren't original stock ones ) so can't see the point in getting these for me.

I do believe those headlights would be the HID versions, so would be an excellent upgrade for anyone

So when will it all be coming over??

Well It will be coming over as soon as I get the cash together, if I can get enough people willing to buy enough parts to cover the cost of bringing the whole front cut over i shall do.But I would need to sell about $1500 worth of parts off the front cut to justify doing so.
If not people can just order what the want and I will add it to what im shipping.

And those interested in parts allready im getting a quote on them.

On a side note. While the engine is out, you might wanna think about replacing the front swaybar and bushes. Best time to do those is when the engine is out...

Thats a really good thought.
I will get them checked but I think I have allready replaced those bushes.

Also if anyone else wants a FS-ZE from a sport 20 please let me know as I can get one with really low mileage on it at the moment.
Hint hint Marc, you wanted a new car but you like what you have now and just want more power, try this first... Its not as expensive as you may think....

OK Im ordering the engine, gearbox, ecu and brakes off the Mazdaspeed Familia today, does anyone else want anything else off it.
Lights, rear spoiler, Fog lights, etc are available or anything else for any Mazda that you would like thats JDM and hard to find here as I can get it included with my shipping to make it cheaper.
The exchange rate at the moment is really good so it makes parts much cheaper.

Still waiting for the engine to arrive.

I cant workout how the Mazdaspeed Familia with 10.7:1 pistons, extractors, high lift cams puts out only 5kw more than a standard FS-ZE.

There's not much difference between the FP and FS either, yet they feel completely different. The 1.8 seems like it has no torque at all. I reckon you'll be happy with the FS-ZE either way

Well it looks like its going to be a lot longer before I get my car running again as my engine is currently stuck in Christchurch after their massive earthquake.
I have not been able to get in contact with the company I was getting my engine from and I kind of dont expect to hear from them for a few weeks yet.
My Uncle and Aunties beautiful house sounds like it is not repairable and mums place has cracks in the brickwork and all though the house and the floor in the kitchen bounces when you walk on it.
Also most of her nice old collectables, TV's now have bounced off the shelves and broken after their many earthquakes.
Thank goodness everyone I know is ok and I feel sorry for them with little water and no sewerage and some without homes or power.

Good to hear that family and freinds are ok Phil. Hopefully things will improve in the near future.
