Even with safe search off I still can't see ****, and for that reason im forced to use bing image search.

Also, the chevy V6 may work better for swaps then the ford b/c it looks to be a OHV design, whereas im guessing the ford is a overhead cam engine, and thus wider and taller then the gm 4.6.

Yes. Anyone who suggests a Ford engine clearly has never looked at one ... as you've pictured, they are WIDE.

It's also aluminum, direct injection, and VVT. Since it's a base truck engine it should be a cheap junkyard buy in another 2 years.
If ALL that is true, we may be onto something in 2 years.

I've a feeling it will be more like 5-10 years though.

Naw... Id rather bolt a transmission on and hack up a subframe, lol
Im really amazed nobody has tried it yet. If I ever get another Miata I think I would seriously consider it.
Not sure what the oil pan situation is like though.

LOL @ guys comparing the new 4.3 V6 with the one in the old S-10's. Not even in the same realm guys. The new 4.3 would really be a sweet, sweet motor, and it's going to make an awesome base engine in the pickups that will put the DOHC mills from Ford and Ram to shame.

Not hangin' on GM's ***** here but it's really impressive what they've done with that motor.

idk about that
The NA 3.7 V6 Ford/Mazda engine is putting out 305/280 NA and the 3.5L version is making 365/420 with turbloz.

Obviously the base Chev motor won't compare with the top line ecoboost. I'm talking base v6s all around. And before you say "nobody buys the base v6 anyway" sales numbers show otherwise.

The 4.3 makes 285 HP and 305 lb ft. Check the power @ rpm and torque vs. HP numbers and tell me which one is the best truck engine.

Forget the V6's, the 2.0L ecoboost 4 cyl is more compact, idk what type of engine management you'd use for a direct injection engine.
From wikipedia:
Quote:
A 2.0 L version was first seen in the 2008 Ford Explorer America Concept.[4] The engine was rated at 275 hp (205 kW; 279 PS) and 280 lbft (380 Nm).

It is the first EcoBoost engine to include Twin-Independent Variable Cam Timing (Ti-VCT), with advertised 10–20% better fuel economy while maintaining the performance of 3.0-liter V6 engines.[20][21]
Specifications[edit]

Great thread!
Steps for best Miata swap:

1) remove truck engine.

2) modify subframe.

3) install truck engine.


But seriously, you guys are thinking too big. I'd go with the 3-cyl 1L ecoboost. With a larger turbo from the 1.6 version, it made 200hp in the formula ford they put it in. They are coming to the US in 2014 supposedly.
