Yes, it sounds badass, yes it sounds like a race car ought to. No it does not sound like a 19,000 rpm screamer honda v8.

hey I asked on our local maillist... guy doesn't seem to have a web page, or anything.

BTW - I really really doubt he's rich, being NZ it's more likely to be a couple guys with beanies, tolerant g/f's and a shed full of gear...

... this is actually the 2nd lexus-v8 mx5 ... there was another one in the North Island. I have a video of him doing a monster burnout at the skidfest if anyone's interested :P .

This is the nicest Toyo/Lexus V8 swap I've seen: http://picasaweb.google.com/alaivins/Miata

He's probably the 2nd or 3rd to have done it. He just recently swapped in a manual tranny (after having it successfully smogged and registered in California with the stock auto tranny temporarily installed).
