NB8B LS3 V8 Build Video

Postby Hammer » Sat Feb 25, 2017 2:46 pm

If you like watching build videos, then you might just like this.

Putting an LS3 V8 engine into the MX5 isn't new. Flying Miata has been doing it for years, starting with the NA, and now has an ND prototype zipping around the US [just like the video below].



This guy did the same thing but he captured the entire build on video. Starting with an NB8B MX5 SE [aka Mazdaspeed]. I'm envious of the car he created at the end. The exhaust sound alone that his MX5 produces is aural porn. That alone nearly sold me on the car.

I wish the laws in Australia weren't so strict, as I'd like to own an LS3 powered MX5. But with our current laws, his car [and the Flying Miata LS3 MX5] is illegal here.

Check out his LS3 V8 Miata Build YouTube Channel to watch the buid. Enjoy.

Here's Episode One of the LS3 V8 Miata Build

Still enjoy watching it on occasion as he starts with, well, basically, MY Car! :mrgreen:
(PS> Yep, hate the fact we can't do an LS3 swap in OZ, however there are some interesting developments out there on the LFX front :wink: )

Then get it off the bed..... I'm sure that would keep the missus happy if nothing else! :wink:

BTW, a question for you Lachy..... 3.6L NA or 3.0L twin turbo? :mrgreen:
