Nope ... We are the people to do it! Checkout our other line.... K Series Swap Parts - K-Tuned

We are going to give it a try soon.. Just need to find a cheap, but decent shell to start the project!

Man, I really hope that you go through with this one. I've only been on this forum a year or two and have seen two (now three) of your builds that generally go like this:

1: Hey, I'm going to build XXX
2: Lots of pics of purchased parts
3: No news for a while
4: Huge FS thread

Like I said, I really hope this one goes through for you. Obama said that everyone DESERVES a V8 Miata. Really. Go Snopes it.

Urban...I don't have a lot of room to talk...but atleast I have a running turbo Miata.

You are really good at buying parts and "planning" a build...and not so good about installing them.

Please go through with this. I'm sure it won't disappoint. Maybe you've just been waiting for the "right" build...well this has to be it.

well... guys that are building this car didnt want to deal with "***** motor" that was my 2.0L but i was totally fine with it... this build will get finished because i dont have any more money to pay for more parts :/

oh, and this time around im going to do a lot of **** myself so i know **** gets done right now we just need to refresh the motor a little, figure out what cam to run, get/install fuel cell, do final prep (alignment, tuning), then paint from another shop that owes me and off to willow springs raceway we go

deadline is mid-to-end of january for a running car.

I'm busting your *****. So is all the engine bay work and wiring done, and the rear end in too, or is that also part of the 'just'?

there isnt much to do in the engine bay. LSx wiring is self-contained and only needs few wires hooked up to actually work. ecu fits in engine bay also (thus my decision to re-wire everything and save like gazzilion lbs in wires.)

rear end install kit is on its way from boss frog. already have carrier, rebuild/install kit, and diff itself. check out the thread on m.net about rear end:
