    i've seen this car... pretty cool and CLEAN. I can't click the link, but are there are pictures of a nice fitting hood on it? Last pics I saw it still had a funk hood for the intakes...

      It appears that it has a true cowl induction hood.

        It is unique thats for sure.
        However, if I go to the work, expense, and trouble to do a swap
        its not going to be a V6 nor will it be powder blue. ;)

          The blue isn't my favorite either.

            interesting set up with the individual throttle bodies and all. 12 g's is a little much though.

              I was worried he would be asking more then 12, it sounds mean, and is pretty cool. I'd take it over a V8 swapped Miata probably.

                Cool idea, absolutely ******* hideous though. That colour is just crap.

                  nothing that a few rattle cans (or a roller) can't fix.

                    What is it with spray painting/roller painting your car?? Why not spend the money and get something that looks good instead of ***.

                      I think he was joking about the rattle cans, but I've seen some roller jobs up close and they look just as good as a $$$k paint job. You'll have to see my neighbor's '32 Ford hot rod. He spent almost 3 weeks doing the work, but that car is a beautiful fire engine red!

                      Spending less than 5% of the price of some body shop = win.

                          Personally, I like the blue on that Miata...

                            If I had to make a decision on a car that was to be driven on the street, i'd rather have a $500 Macco 2-stage ( of course, i'd do all the prep work and whatnot myself) than that roller paint...unless the car was a dedicated track car.

                              If it's a track car only, in simontibbets case, then I understand but for something that is everyday driven, I want something that's going to look good and not have a lot of orange-peel in the paint.
