For the past year I've been thinking about putting a Miata together with a Thunderbird 2.3 turbo . Only cause I've been watching Stacy on GEARs put a 400+hp 5.0 into one. Its what I like to call a poor mans A/C Cobra. I've got a friend who put a 2.3t into a 93 RX7. He was sayin he has found a site that sells a program for the stock turbo setup that should put out about 350hp for I think it was $1500.oo. MonsterMiata.com says if you put a stock 5.0 (I beleave the 91 that makes 220hp)in one you will run 12's right out of the box. I was going to go to the site to get the cross member that holds the 5.0 and all the rear end parts and so on, to compleat this super sleeper. I just wanted to know what you think and anyone else to..If anyone has any ideas what else I could put a 2.3t into , I'm open for ideas! And yes a Bug has crossed my mind. Hell even a 318 BMW to.

Yes, Yes, I know a v8 would be fun but , I dare to be different...Go figure..lol (Scirocco) I've seen turboed Miata's before , there was a drift team that came out to the short track I race at and one of the people had a turboed Miata a blue one. Don't get me wrong that the little Miata had some balls. I've always heard that its hard to make a Miata into a drift car. But , this dude had no problem getting sideways. And it sounded great with all the pretty sounds a turbo can make coming out of a miata. Their was a guy who had this 92 ta 94 Mazda truck with a turbo on it but, it seemed he had a few more bugs to work out. To see the drift team youtube it and put in Rockford Speedway drifting team. You'll see like 5 other cars on it to. When I talked to these guys they said they liked the high banked turns we have.

do the 5.0. lol fo course im gonna say that because that would be amazing. you could then do bolt ons exhaust, heads and maybe sometime down the line a bigger cam. it would be a sleeper from hell. like that damn rx7 with the ls1. that thing is wicked.
Oh yah, I've seen Ls1's in RX7's before. All I got to say is "WEEEEEEEEEE"lol:headbang:
