It's nice to see somebody rolling a $10k motor on stock daisy's and a $40 eBay steering wheel.

BB, how about a quick run-down on the build of that car, goals, process... or do you have a website of your own? And for the love of hairless cats, put something in your signature!

I really enjoyed reading your build thread at miata.net. Thanks for coming over and sharing the pics.

Time for some 9" wheels.

9" WIDE. 15x9 FTW



Don't you know width is more important than length?

I like how the harnesses are attached to the style bar. That'll help you tons if you flip it.

Nice engine though. I'd daily that.

I want to see a photo with the hood down, so I can see what the fellow next to you at the light sees. Great car, great motor, and great project. Welcome aboard.

Oh yeah, post your location and exactly what it is you're running under that hood in your signature; it will save lots of questions later.

How does it perform, gear ratio's, and pic with hood down.
Looks Great.
ps. I don't think you can pull the sleeper look off with that motor sticking out the hood. lol

I wanna drive it. My turn, my turn.
Looks like a fun project. I have zero hands on hours around 12 cylinder engines.

If your ever in the Saint Pete, Tampa Florida area come on by, I will let you take it for a spin.

The style bar, and upper seat belts were added just for looks. I built the car basically because I was tired of V8 conversions.

My goals. I have had many race cars, my last project was a 1987 suzuki samurai with a 408windsor in it that ran 9.90's in the quarter mile. I will include a photo here. For the miata I wanted something more streetable. What was important was 400ish h.p., run on 93 octane, and can hit the highway for 50-100 mile trips. I also wanted more of the european exotic feel to it. Most of all I had to build something the girlfriend wouldnt mind riding in. The style bar and upper seat belts were added just for looks. Its also still in the finishing stages so I have alot to do to the car before its ready for the street. Could I have put a V8 in it with more power and less weight? Yep , sure could of. But for me it was more about how I made the 400h.p. I wanted the V12 look and sound, and just wanted something someone else hasent done 500 times before.

I like the car, would also like to see pictures with the hood down.

I get that you did the style bar "just for looks", but that is kind of the miata equivalent of putting "neon" lights on your car. They are just for looks, but only flamers do it.
