That's Landon's car out of Iowa (I think that is where he's from). He's in the 10s. Mine is a 12s car at Bandimere (5200ft). I'm thinking that mine would run nearly a second faster at his altitude. I have a supercharger for it, but I'm not sure that I want to chop up the front anymore to fit it. I may just put a wet nitrous plate on it to get me in the 11s.

The video that I posted is Landon's car(MX5.7). That thing is wicked fast. I'd be nearly a full second faster at his altitude, but I'm hoping to be running mid 12s on street tires at Bandimere this summer.
Glad it's working out and the basic design is decent. I gotta stop ******* with the new bike and get back to work on mine. OF course, i'll be gone all weekend at my first bike school/trackday, so this weekend is out the window.

Yep, Iowa. I THINK he has done a 10.7xx at one point. Not bad for a Miata.

My understanding is that the new 5.0L is as wide as the 4.6 so it won't fit. Even if it did fit I'd go LS all the way.

My understanding is that it is the next gen ls engine with the same outer dims. I could be wrong, but I think that there is a guy doing a swap with one right now.

Yep, pretty much the same size, and it's actually lighter than the less powerful LSx's. Awesome engine.

You can more or less sawp an LS7 into a 5th gen Camaro as a bolt-in affair. Its externaly identical to the LS3 save for the dry-sump.

Its a sweet engine, but to be honest I would take my money and build up an LSX of cheaper vintage. You can exceed the performance of the LS7 pretty easily and reliably on any LSX with a top notch heads/cam setup.
