    Not quite. You'll need to fabricate mounts. I've never personally done this before so maybe someone else will chime in.

      You only need to modify 1 mount. I'm going to modify a batch of them later this month.
      If the DOHC B6 is from a Capri, it's a really easy swap, almost plug and play. If it's from a miata you'll need some capri or 323 gt/gtx parts to make it work (unless your a decent fabricator).

        Shadetree said the B6D or B6T is as easy in a carb car as an EFI car. I would PM him to see how he did that. I personally don't understand how that's possible, but I've done neither.

        I do know that the carb fuel tank is different, and it does not have a fuel pump in it like the EFI ones do. So, you'd either have to swap tanks or install an inline pump. But again no experience here.

        I've only done 1 swap in an EFI car. So again, I'd PM him.
        Any difference that makes no difference is no difference.

          Rob was referring to it in terms of wiring up the b6d capri or b6t capri fuel injection. If you use stock festiva fuel injection, this isn't the case (non turbo only, unless your a wizard with LJETRONIC management or you've got a plug n play Megasquirt for the project.)

          A b6d will run fine on stock festiva Fuel injection, but if you plan to run the b6d on Carburetors, you've got your work cut out for you. The manifolds to do this are rare and expensive. You could modify a Capri intake manifold to use a 2 barrel (non progressive) carb, but you'll need some good equipment and skill for this.
