Ugliest car EVER. There was one at the track a few weeks back when I was there. The thing seemed to go extremely slow.

**** I only have 350 and I have a large cam that doesnt come on 3500 and I can still cruise around at 1800rpm in 6th gear at around 70.

Or you could build one of these (Buddies NA LS2)

Over 400rwtq from 2700 to 6800 and 380rwtq at 2200 rpm.

That was through a broken rear end. Has since had lots of tuning and a few changes and we expect over 630rwhp NA.

Ran 182 (IIRC) at the standing mile in a 4th gen body with wide as flares up front and 11 wheels all around.

Be pretty wicked in a miata

Whats your plans for emissions testing?

The V8's are a riot. I've been driving mine for the last week now. 22mpg last tank with mainly sitting driving and a few (10-15) WOT passes in 2nd and 3rd. Its fun turning the tires over from a roll and 3rd/4th go by just as quickly as 1st (traction limited on the little 225 NT01's).

I know I'm playing devils advocate on here, but with as nice as HPT and EFI Live are, I don't think many will be eager to go down the MS route. We already have RTT and I'm pretty sure EFI Live has Autotune. We were promised it with HPT years ago, but they haven't seemed to deliver it.

Couldnt you just run a miata BCM and an Fbody PCM, and mount the OBD2 port in the stock location. The inspector would plug it up unassumingly, and you can seriously get anything to pass OBDII.

For instance, if just hooked to the machine the car with the motor I listed above would pass.

Umm those are sexy cars dude. I don't give a damn how fast or slow it is. Those things look like a million bucks and sound nasty if done right and I am sure haul nuggets in the straights. Sweetest car ever.

Update:
Car is sold and gone as of yesterday.
I hope Bryan enjoys it as much as I did (I know he will), and takes as good care of it as I have. It was so sad to see it drive away last night. Such a sad feeling. Like losing your favorite pet or something.

Anyways, thanx for all your input guys, and I'm starting to research v8 swaps and all the headaches that come with them lol
