    Rad Engine Swap

    Found this while noodling on the net.

    http://www.speedfreak.cc/miata/index.html



    Yep that's a Miata. Yep there's a 302 in it.



    Darn Cool.

    i dont think it would fit. the 302 has smaller outside dimentions. and that engine bay dont look like it can fit any more...

    Re: Rad Engine Swap

    now wouldnt it be funny if somone saw that driving down the road, then called it rice?

    because, its more like an american uncle-ben riceball with meat inside. its even white, like rice.

    i would drive that. hell, id drive a regular miata.

    Re: Rad Engine Swap

    It doesn't actually affect the handling too much. There is a guy with a 5.0 miata around here and he loves the way it handles... very good quarter mile times too. Especially when you think about the cost of buying other cars and building them...
