That goes without saying, Troy. Haha. Turbo, cruise control and a/c...I'm in heaven. I'm a man who enjoys his minimal creature comforts.

I'd love to get a ride in a K miata. My friend's K24 civic was a blast @ 540whp.

I'd prefer a 300whp NA Miata over a 540whp turbo Miata. Much more useful on a road course. Then again, I realize this is miataTURBO.net....

Same. I'd rock a 220whp n/a miata over a 300whp turbo miata any day.

Get us some videos of this beast, OP!

I'm doing this....no doubt. It's everything I ever wanted in my car for a swap. A tuneable ecu, stock Miata trans and rear, plenty of "all motor options" that actually make good power, continued use of the factory Miata gauges, etc. I've dreamt of this for years. I'm thinking 260 whp out of a k24 with k20 head NA would make my Miata the funnest daily driver I own.

hold on hold on hold on... that's not what he said! lol

If you used a smaller turbo on one of these to take it to 320 whp ish, it'd be awesome and awesome.

Throttle response is for people who can't afford real power.

I'd rather take the 540whp miata. I am a sucker for big power highway queens.

Haha, than this swap will suit everyones needs it sounds like.

I think a miata is the most well "balanced" in the 200-300whp range. If i could achieve this N/A i'd be in love.

Others want 400+whp, again k24 is perfect for this with a dash of boost.

I tried a quick thread search without success.

magicdc2 - Have you looked to see if A/C is plausible with this swap?

Buddy of mine has a complete k24 long block (minus coils and accessories). Said he'd sell it to me for $350.
Should I jump on it?
