Default Possible Mustang to Miata Trade

I have a 97 mustang GT that crapped out on me. I modded a decent bit of the suspension and put some work into the engine. But it finally gave out after about 40k miles of Canyon running and hot doging. I'm trying to decide what to do next. Its either rebuild the mustang motor, or get something new. I like the curvy stuff more than the straight so I'm looking into something light.

Don't think that would give me what I want. Too much work to make that swap with the 4.6l motor. A monster miata would be easier, but I don't want to do another v8 if I'm switching to a miata. I'd rather build a turbo.
