It's been done. Car was too nose heavy and spoiled the handling of a Miata so the guy sold it on ebay for a fraction of what he had in it.

Not hatin, just pointing out a fact.

If you run a Holley 600 it will practically drop-in. Maybe a 750 double pumper if you have extra $$ laying around.

I have a buddy that did this swap for autocross and it was pretty good. Mostly because it was a turbo motor from factory and the studs don't stretch.

I see a couple problems with this. First, this is not a supported swap in the miata community. That does not mean you will not be able to make it happen, it just means you will have to spend a lot more time doing R&D than you would if you had picked an engine like the Chevy LS series. The next issue you might see is that it will be terribly heavy. Wikipedia lists it at 882lbs. Your racelands are going to have a seriously hard time with this much weight in the front end.

Post up a build thread and let us know how it goes.

EDIT: Also, you should look into compound boosting it. I heard it really wakes up the motor.

All valid points. Additionally, there are very few aftermarket ECU options that would be readily available to support this swap. 18 cylinders are not common in the aftermarket.

That is too many Webers to keep synchronized. I am afraid I am out on this one. Good luck.
