You're normal. The weird festiva guys have the same driveline sitting in the back seat too.

First of all, welcome! Second, I have always wanted to do one of these swaps, except use a miata engine and driveline to make it rwd. What is the curb weight on one of those stock, like 1700lbs?

We have to. With a miata intake mani theres only 1-2in between the throttle body and shock tower.

Its been done with a turbo bp. Alot of fab work pretty much had to make a whole new floor. Mine weighed around 1900 with the b6t swap and a full tank.
