Is there any ideas anyone has to fix the excessive oil burning of this engine? Failing that, what other engines can be adapted to this vehicle?

A direct block swap can be found in some fusions or anything that uses the 3.0 duratec. One would have to move many things from the Mazda block over to the fusion or the like block.

As far as an engine swap for performance gains, to my knowledge there hasn't been a swap as of yet. I have something in the works for this but still far in the planing and parts gathering stage.

Depending on how many miles are on the car, you could always do a good old fashion overhaul. Though at the time when I looked into it, I couldn't find a master rebuild kit or a master gasket set. It looked as if we would have to piece it together ourselfs and that just adds to the cost. I don't know if there is one or not (I'm sure there is somewhere) because I have already decided that I will not be building a Duratec30 but instead looked into doing something else.
