Sorry to jump in but the Z-Fever car is owned by a friend of mine in Vermont and was at NHIS this past weekend.

Not to say it was not built by Z-Fever , but this is not the car that was featured HERE


I will also be building a SR Miata time attack shop car this summer


Wow , did not realize I never posted here . Let me introduce myself . My name is Scott and I am from NH . I recently picked up a 95R after my 01 SC S2000 got totaled .

use the stock BP, or if you want to do a swap do a FE3 like m2cupcar said. much better choice than the SR.

FE3, mazda "big" block 4 cly.

It also shares some dimensions with a supra motor. I think supra pistons will fit perfectly

They made at least two that I know of. I'm just putting 2 and 2 together, having lived in Tampa I know there aren't many shops there that'll build something like that, so it was probably Z fever.

Cool.
The fuel cell is in the trunk...yes...the subs (someone asked where) are on the deck lid.
I dunno...I put a MS Protege sub/amp rack in my trunk...it's an 8" sub and it is removed for track days. I need music as it's my DD here in Turkey.

No big deal to me ,we have several Miata's . I already tossed the suspension and rear sway . R's are not that special , Torsion diff , suspension , manual steering all stuff you can do to any Miata .


SR20 is the best bang for the dollar . No need to build the motor or Trans . Just boost away . I dont see how anyone can say the SR20 is play'd if it is only in a few Miata's ???

My Shop specializes in S2000's and Nissan's . I could easily swap a F20c into it ( I have three on the shelf ) But I would still need to build it . I figured go with the SR plus I already offer all the supporting mods for it .Plus my Nissan customers will get a kick out of it ( I already get hell from them for driving a Miata )

if you think they are not special then you don't care about miata truly. The are special to those that race them because of what they came with, or lack of what they came with for Stock classes. You could make some money selling it and buying a base package.

You can make just as much power with a properly tuned BP (or you swap even more with a stock FE3).

Best bang for the buck is just to turbo a miata with its factory motor

He said the SR20DET is played out, not the SR20DET-in-a-Miata is played out.

But it is somewhat pointless in a Miata.

i smoked a SR20 at the track with my lil 1.6.

Personally, I'd like to see a KA24DE-T miata. Now that would be an upgrade.

Dont get me wrong I love my Miata, and I do race it (as I have love for all cars ). But Stock class is a bore to me as I have been racing for 19 years . Right now it is prepped for STS2 . I have not bothered tracking it yet as we were running a DE BMW before .

Your right I could build the BP or the FE3 . Why would I want the KA24 ?? yes it can make power but it weights alot more than the SR ( Iron block ) ? Hell I could just swap in the Ford 302 and do twins ( Oh wait I already have a car with that setup ) . But that is not the point . Hell if I wanted to go all out I would do the Hyabusa V8

Sorry I did not elaborate . We are building a time attack car and the SR is capable of 400whp in stock form with only a turbo upgrade . Only other thing I need to do is a diff swap . To get to that level the BP would need to be built and I still need to fabricate a new turbo system and trany swap .

The SR is more cost effective . $3000 complete in parts at my cost for everything needed to reach 400whp..... turnkey and not worry. That way I can spend money on the other important things like sticking it to the track and stopping it .

Like I said best bang for the buck not cheapest way out

To each their own .

The FE3 wouldn't need building. And you can bolt up the R trans from a 929 using a Bongo van bellhousing. Just need to either connect the ppf or build the trans and diff supports. Parts for all that wouldn't be over $1500 (FE3-$600, R Trans-$300, Bongo Bell $200, S/H-$500).

Alas, it probably wouldn't do much for business- would it? The FE3 wouldn't have the allure, and with SR you can give the Nissan fans what they've always wanted: a convertible sportscar.

You think the R-tranny would be up to 400whp duty ?

If it is that stout I will swap it into our M as I think my business partner wants to turbo his . He is not looking for more that 250whp .


SR is in the same price range for what you have listed . The addition money in the $3k figure would be for a new Garrett turbo and materials to fab everything .

Yeah- turbo rx7s are running 500fhp to it... though those are torqueless rotoaries. I can think of several drag racing Miatas that used the R trans and diff. And one was 400+ rwhp. Of course since you're a shop, you could just build an adapter plate and skip the bellhousing- that's just a $50 aluminum plate. Then pick a tII trans... I got two a rotary shop gave me for free. So I'm sure they're cheaper than the 929 R trans.

I thought SR20s with trans were $2k+ s/h.
