Default New NB from South Florida

Hi All,

I purchased my used (tired) 2001 Miata in the fall of 2010. I love the way it handles and really enjoy driving it. After 6 months, I decided to put a new engine in the car. I use the web to research the various options available and decided to put a Ford V-8 in place of the anemic 1.8. Little did I realize that it would take almost a year to do the conversion. Car is finally back on the road and it is awesome! I was concerned that the additional weight in the front (100-150lbs) would hurt the handling, but surprisingly it feels fine. I am really happy with the way it turned out.

Welcome to the site.


But you can't post about your V-8 Miata and not post pictures!

Hey Bob, Welcome to CR.net and I agree with Stumpy! Post pics! Sounds like a great conversion. Think you'll post a build thread? Or are you done building now?

Welcome,

Chris
