That's why I bought this a while back:




And got as far as this:








Before I got this:


So yeah, I have had it pictured for quite a while. And I have a feeling it'll happen in the next year or so. Wink

Thanks Timmy! Very Happy

Nope. For me. Smile

It's what LSx motors were designed for. Wink

I'm pretty sure GM was'nt thinking "...hey this will fit great in a Miata" when they were designing it. No

Ok, so now this is a damn cool build! A "drift car" self built by owner... Wink

http://ls1tech.com/forums/conversions-hybrids/1493024-dannys-miata-self-built-badassery.html













It's a little different than I would plan, but it's nice to see that I can easily modify a stock crossmember and not have to spend 4 grand for a swap kit. Wink

FOUR GRAND! Shocked


that's when I would stop thinking about it and get something like an 89 formula to drop an LS in! Laughing

Yeah, but for $10-$12G's total investment, what else are you gonna be able to buy that would come near it in performance and handling?

And instant death on collision! You forgot that!

Point taken though, then again I feel like it's too much power and it would be all over the place in the handling department. Are there videos to prove the great handling?? Question

Not a fan. But it would be sweet to see and sick to drive. I would just buy a box Caprice or late 70's Impala and drop that motor in and use it to drag.

Thousands of autocrossers can't be wrong. And with the all aluminum LSx, it's only 40 lbs heavier than the stock 4 banger. And the added weight of the Ford 8.8" rear, about 40 lbs also, keeps pretty damn close to the factory weight distribution with no adverse affect on handling. Wink

Close. But I bet this outhandles it.

Going in a straight line is boring. Especially after you've gone through the twisties a bit. Give me a car that handles over a straight line killer any day. cheers

That's the way I look at it. I figure if I can get the Caprice HANDLING pretty nicely, I won't be too broken up over the TBI 5.0 in it for now.

That Miata is sick...427 Cobra redux...
