Default New guy about to shove a Miata engine in a KP61 (Toyota Starlet)

First of all, I know I don't own a Miata, but I have the engine!
Close enough right?

Anyway I own a 1981 Toyota Starlet with an anemic engine and RWD; I found a wrecked 2001 NB Miata when I was at the junkyard..

Even better they were having a 1/2 price memorial day sale so I walked away with an engine, 5spd trans, the entire cars' wiring harness, driveshaft, and clutch pedal and cylinder for $250!

My immobilizer set up was no good so I just bought a new set from ebay for $160 and once I get that this project will get rolling!

Now, for the best part, pics.

Yeah good enough for me lol. That's awesome man. You should throw some kind of device on that takes exhaust gases, uses a turbine to capture the energy, transfers it to a connected impeller that helps to push air into the engine. If only something like that existed
