Here is ONE vendor from e-bay showing mazda engine gasket kits.. a heck of a lot cheaper than the one listed above.

They show the KLDE set for the Probe or MX-6.. but its compatible with the KLZE, K8, K8ZE, and KFZE. (Not 100% certain on the KFZE though)

Click Here

Now this is e-bay and what is there today may be gone tomorrow.. but this looks like a well established vendor doing LOTS of autopart business via E-bay. So they should have something most of the time I would think.

Cheers

Post Origin of these Parts
Hey guys... first this is a great shopping list especially for some of us that are considering the swap so that they can do it all in one shot....

But what i wasn't sure about one thing when i went to some of those links especially most of them are from importperformanceparts.net

For most of the internal engine parts like camshafts, crankpullys, crankshafts, rods, pistons and valves for example... are mostly from the KLZE engine...

So are they after market..!? now some of the parts there are... but those specifically seem to be stripped out of the JDM KLZE engine may be brand new from suppliers overseas or barely used whatever the case may be... at the end if someone were to get a swap for the KLZE .... then those internals should already be in there....right ?!


Now things like shafts, flywheels all that i understand that are aftermarket.. which is great and worth getting from what i have seen on the forums...

Another thing I am not sure if anyone was able to get a lead on any fuel management system.... for example, feul rail, feul injectors, ... I did see somewhere i think corksport has feul pressure regulator... but other than that for feul management system, or a rev delimitter would be nice ..... anyone...! :)

One last thing on the side LooseChangeRacing u said to make it sticky donno if i missed that option or didn't see it but if u want to take this out later on just let me know in case u are not able to

No it's ok, I made this sticky so that these sort of questions can be asked...and I am working to keep it as up to date as possible...anyway while i have 2 minutes on the comp heres your anwser.

The TOPLINE OEM stuff is OEM replacements but brand new...

Everything else should be aftermarket (stronger, better quality, forged, ect..)

Each page should have a bit of information as to what makes it stronger....

Remember though, always do the extra research on anything you seriously want to buy, this is so people can get a list of things and start estimating their budget.

In your Camshaft section you can add Colt Cams as they offer a few different grinds for the 2.5l.

You can get cams from either interprep tunning or they also have a few different profiles to choose from on the colt cam site.

Post Re: KL Engine Internal Upgrading (Please Sticky so I can edit)
I'd assume with ferrea (like interprep) the idea is you replace all 24 exhaust and intake springs, then use 24 of their same size retainers and springs. I went with interprep, using the 12 stock exhaust retainers, 12 new kl03 intake retainers and 24 interprep valve springs. So you actually end up with 12 smaller (but stronger) intake valve spring/retainer combos.
