thats the great thing about the KA though, with the extra .4 (.6 with the ca18det) litres you've got the torque to not have to rev high for power, and theres no replacement for displacement

Not the best block my *** if you swap out the weak pistons and the rods 500 whp should be no problem. and with less boost than a SR or CA the 240 that runs 9's has a what in it oh thats right KA24 bitches

please show me that. I always here people talking like that but I never see it in hard cold facts. And big deal i a BP can make 400+ stock, just not for long. Same with all the high power "stock' Sr motors I have seen.

Radios and speakers are a waste. I mean **** I can't really hear mine w/ the top down over the exhaust/turbo/etc. Keep in mind I only have a headunit and 2 speakers. I'm not all F&Furious style with 18 speakers. :(

Default Mazda's big block 4

I'm still voting for the Mazda FE3 (FE-dohc). I know there's only a couple of Miatas with them, but they're proven in other chassis.

A good example is an Mx-3 in PR with the fe3 swap, t3/t4, log mani, external wg, mbc:
It comes stock 86x86mm (bore stroke), so it revs like a Miata. Swap in the F2T crank for 2.2L displacement with a $500 set of forged pistons and you're ready to run over 20psi reliably. Check out the SR rods next to the FE3's (courtesy of Danny G.) Danny's car is now in Canada making near 600whp on a stock crank. -rob

SR is not reliable at 500whp with a stock block. It's a great motor but its not all that and a bag of chips. Misinformation on the internet and drifter fanboys have given it a god-like status.

Pound for pound, KA's and SR's have about the same power potential. KA's are just torquier and don't rev as high in stock form.

My KA24DE with a t3/t4 never lost to an SR powered car. My old car makes an appearance in the KA-T.org video Mine was daily driven HARD @ ~300whp and lasted for years until I upped the boost and broke a ringland due to bad tuning on my part.

I'm pretty sure this car was from Tampa, Florida. I remember when one was built here. I seem to recall the car being black... The SR wasn't "played out" at the time. It was "fresh." I saw it run once. It was insane. Fast? Yes... and barely controlable by whomever was in the cockpit.

yeah its from here in Tampa

fast? I wouldn't say that, the car only laid down a little over 200rwhp. And the SR has been played out for 3 years lol

Pretty sure this probably came from Z Fever in Tampa, they've put out most of the SR-Miatas. Nice tho!

very nice!!! that's a really nice build.
turbos are so not confusing after just sitting down and reading something like that.

seriously... a little fan powered by exhaust to force air into the intake and with added fuel and an okay tune...boom automatic fun!
