Are you saying you are going to sell a ls1 swapped miata close to the price of a stock nb? Not sure if i understand you heh.

Edit: or do you mean you will get closer to what you put into it than if you had a built turbo car?

Yes to your Edit! My car was a well sorted out FM II car with a very expensive ECU and all supporting mods and I got it for about $2k (or less even) than the same car bone stock would run.

I've always been all about an lsx swap, but couldnt muster the money for the engine/ tranny, so im considering resorting to the 5.0, and using as many aluminum accessories as possible. But if you can afford the ls, more power to you.

Actually, that is within the realm of reason. If you do the calculations, the injectors would probably be running around 85% duty cycle.

I run many ford SB blower cars and real world is the 40psi of fuel pressure they use will not support those #'s. I have tried.
