After almost 2 years of working on the car every now and then, my miata is back on the ground and started for the first time with a new 331 Ford V8. I have some ground clearance issues to address before its ready for the road.
Update: It's been on the road for almost 4 years now w/ the V8 and running fine. (see vimeo(dot)com/14690152)

Flyin' Miata V8 turnkey walkaround
A stunning piece of cinematography, this is a walkaround a Habu, one of
Flyin' Miata's turnkey V8 cars. For more information, see
You can see these cars in action at http://www.youtube.com/TargaMiata.
The car is a 2004 Mazdaspeed that was stripped to a bare body and rebuilt
with all new parts:
430 hp all aluminum Chevy LS3 engine
6-speed T56 transmission
Getrag rear end with limited slip
Flyin' Miata Exhaust and cooling
Flyin' Miata AFCO suspension and V8Roadsters tubular control arms
Flyin' Miata four-wheel big brake kit
Hard Dog Hard Core Hard Top roll bar
V8 Miata around the block
First drive out onto public roads. Shifted through all the gears and all
was well but the carb bogs under acceleration. At least I can get it to a
garage now for a propper carb tuning.
The Banshee Pay-off [S5 Ep.10-1]
It's back! It's done!! AND it's WILD! The Banshee comes full circle as
Stacey walks you thru the complete buildup of this incredible V8 powered
Miata, and then takes it out for a good flogging! If you've ever dreamed
of owning a Cobra or Corvette, but you needed something more reliable and
affordable, this is one project you have to check out! If you've always
considered the Mazda Miata a girl's car...you HAVE to check this out! If
you think that it's impossible to have a reliable car with power windows,
Air conditioning, and a real working top, that is ALSO blisteringly
FAST...YOU HAVE TO CHECK THIS OUT! The best part is this is a car you can
actually build and afford...and that's what real Hot Rodding is all about!
Secret Service and NYPD Unmarked Police Vehicles
New York City, May 2011. NYPD and United States Secret Service vehicles can
be seen here in the vicinity of Ground Zero during the presidential visit
of Barack Hussein Obama to celebrate the death of Osama Bin Laden. Forward
flashing blue lights distinguish the USSS vehicles from the NYPD vehicles
which only use red and white forward flashing lights.
Miata V8 5.0 with Electric Cutouts Exhaust was super-quiet with the 22
inch resonators. Reworked the Exhaust
system with flanges so can swap out options including no resonators or
cutouts or go back to original setup This one is 12 inch resonators and
QTP electric cutouts. Still very quiet, only a slight hint of occasional
drone, and can make a racket when I want to. Though you can't tell, it has
the optional QTP turn-downs. The Exhaust system is 2.25 inch all the way with
old-school air injected cats as original to the 5.0 Mustant engine in 1995,
and Magnaflows with tips. On the passenger side, I fabricated a heat
shield for the area around the fuel filter and fuel lines. The sound in
this video is a little low; it sounds better on headphones or earbuds.
