just be thankful you have the 1.8L most of us have the 1.5 and although its a great engine the hp sucks it comes stock 92 hp and there is almost nothing to upgrade it, without doing very expensive custom work that doesnt' tend to give a lot of hp. I'm sure that you can get the gm25r (i think that is the number) manual tranny for it, it is one of the better ones mazda produced and works with the 1.8L engine.

a 1998 lx didnt come with the 1.8 liter. Only the ES had the 1.8

you should have the 1.6

i don't think the 1.6 was used in the second Gen in North America it would be 1.5.
If he's in Canada, and its an LX then it might have the 1.8

actually there is a 1.6L motor in the second gens , just not in the US or Canada ,, if you look into it , you would see the guys in the phillipines have 1.6Ls and 1.5L's and 1.8L's with the last one being the rarest ......


what country are you from ,, I see it says fair Lawn , but I don't know where that is
