1999 Mazda Miata Engine Swap
KLZE Straight Neck vs.KLZE Curved Neck vs. 13B twin turbo with rx-7 trans ecu,etc.

Which one would you before most to power weight ratio and highest compression.
Also does the need to get fabricated since it's a whole different engine.
What would work what wouldnt work?
Advice and comments please.

You've got to be fucking kidding me. I have no words for this. Since when did the special olympics have street racing in it?

Just drop a 302 in it.

They're like 50 cents, if you can swing it an LSx starts around $2.00.

Are you sure you have the bank roll to say an LS1 is $2?

Those statements are left for situations where the person saying it, has something of higher value.

But I digress. To the OP, stupid threads like this asking for opinions on a motor swap you probably won't do, are fucking annoying.

Troof, when I see LSX cars, I'm like "damn, that hillbilly said fuck his rent this month and got some weld wheels." but in all seriousness, I totally agree, I kinda fbook stalked datsun kid when I seen he commented and one of my friends status or something, and he has nothing greater or close to any lsx powered vehicle.

i have seen a klz miata a ls1 miata a sr20 miata a 13b miata and a 302 miata. out of all of them the ls1 seems the best to do. 13b is very cool and fast. 302 is the cheapest. klz and sr20 seem not worth while to me. and you can buy kits to swap the 302, lsx, sr20, and 13b. the klz is not even worth doing unless you boost it

If you want big power either boost it as is and have a car that's probably not that reliable once you get to ~250 whp or so or throw in a V8.

We get it Jackie, you finally got a engine worth mentioning...you've got a new kind of arrogance ever since you bought that thing.
