Yep, I decided to make a switch and go with a motor with a little more power. The guy said I could fit it into the Miata with no problem.

A damn lot.

I was at a drag radial event this weekend, and I really liked the way this motor looked. It is a big block. I bet it makes over 2000 hp. They would not let them run the full quarter because of saftey issues. The fast cars were in the low 5's, and maybe 4's in the eigth mile. I hear the record for a drag radial car is in the 6.90's range in the quarter mile. I guess radial cars are more dangerous on the top end then slick cars, so they stopped letting them run the quarter at this track (Bradenton Florida)

The "True 10.5" class almost makes dragracing worth watching.

Some of the wheel stands were incredible.
