Just wondering what people have done to their 626. And what they plan to do

I have a 1998 626 4cycl standard. Mods:

-Clear Corners
-Hyper white bulbs and blinker bulbs
-Indiglo Gauges

Saving up for rims and possible thinkin of starting a group buy sometime in the future for a body kit.

I have a 1989 4cyl 2.0 carb 626. Right hand drive.

- K&N air filter
- Performance Coil
- Performance Plug Wires
- Performance Platinum Spark Plugs
- Convert to rear disc brakes
- Upgrade brake line to metal braided
- Change Engine to VQ30
- Install ABS
- Install Climate control air condition
- Convert to leather seats
- Upgrade music from stock system to top of the line audio system with nine speakers
- Remote power up/down windows
- Sound Proof/Noise Reduction

How does this sound so far?

The length of the VQ engine is less than the FE engine in the 626. I'm having a bracket custom made to bolt the engine to the existing mounts on the body...One axle will be the original 626 and the other will be the maxima's.

Thanks for the offer to help me with the mods on the VQ30 engine....

But bear in mind I can only change the engine after I buy my wife a next car to use while I tinker with the 626....so it'll be next year.....

Well thats good, i hope it all works out for you . you will have alot more options with the Vq motor then the mazda motor... I know maxima owners with over 370 hp to the wheels.


alright good luck to you

Hi, just thought i'd point out that the KL-ZE is actually the J-spec V6, with approx 200hp. The FS-ZE is the j-spec i4, with approx 170hp.

Installing a KL-ZE into a v6 626 is a direct swap, installing a ZE into a 4cyl 626 is a very complex task, brakes, transmission and suspension will need to be upgraded just to name a few.

Catchya's,

Caleb-TXFIVE

PS, i have a 92 Ford Telstar TX5, (re-badged 93-97 626 hatch) with the KL03 V6, 2.5" catback exhaust, Simota Cold Air Intake, 17" AMG rims, JVC MP3 sound, ractive front strut brace and ractive KPH indiglo guages. Car has been lowered 2.5" with King springs. Im an active member at mx6.com :D

Very nice, do you have a picture of your ride? I'm a member at mx6.com also, but I rarely post over there.
Hopefully this site will get as good a following.

I wonder if it would be easier to install a turbo made for the protege? How different could the 2L4 in a 626 be from the 2L4 in a Protege?
