Is a 1.6l Mazda miata motor an interference fit motor?

No, Mazda recommends replacing the timing belt at about 65K in all states except Ca. where it is 105K. There is no difference in parts just a difference in State laws (CA requires 100K+ on timing belts) and since it is not an interference engine Mazda just stretched the service interval. No damage if it breaks at'll just be stranded
