Need HELP with info on MAZDA CAPELLA Engine Swap

2 posts in this topic

Hello all, first time posting. I have a Mazda Capella station wagon 2L 1998 front wheel drive auto, here is the CARJAM report https://carjam.co.nz/car/?plate=efj873. But sadly I've rolled the car, it's not worth repairing the damage, but when searching Trademe today I found a Mazda Capella station wagon 2L 1999 all wheel drive auto, https://carjam.co.nz/car/?plate=BRC299, it has a blown head gasket. So my question is does anyone know if these engines are interchangeable, or would I have to replace the whole wiring loom? Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks.

if you have wikipedia'd the engine: i know the klde/klze (2.5 v6) interchange with each other. and the klze is the higher compression version of v6. so at a guess, you have the higher compresion version (10:1 vs 9:1)
