Default Racing on Ice

I've got the heart of a Miata, but I race a Ford Festiva on ice, and an RX7 on pavement. Of course the Festiva is made by Kia with a Mazda drive train, badged by Ford, and sold in Japan as the Mazda 121, and Korea as the Kia Pride.
Naturally I am not NA, with a 1.6 L B6T (7.8 cr)and G series tranny swapped into the Festiva for the second incarnation, and a 1.6 L bottom end from an MX3 (9.0 cr) with the B6T head on the first version. Having broken the rad and raced the engine dry I am now looking to put the Miata B6ZE block and head in, with the B6T manifolds to keep it all fitting within the Festiva engine bay.

No pics here, but there are some links below to the original race car and engine build, along with the half-front clip replacement.

Thanks for the welcome.
I have few videos, but I am you tube illiterate, so I'll just have to post pics.
