Re: Every car should have a BP engine. Here's proof.

I see your BP powered fiesta and raise you a BP powered Austin-Healey Sprite.

Looks like fun but the thing that scares me about making little econo boxes go very fast is aerodynamic stability at high speed.

Car: 1966 Datsun SPL 311
Engine: 1997 Miata DOHC 1.8
Transmission: Aisin 6 speed
Fuel: dual Weber 40 DCOE's on a Boig manifold
Ignition: Electromotive HPX w/ crankshaft pickup
Frame cuts: 0
Subframe clearancing: NO
Firewall mods: NO
Transmission Tunnel mods: NO
Any hammering involved: NO
Shifter comes through original hole: YES
Hood shuts: YES
Steering shaft mods: NO
Exhaust comes out same side as roadster
Water outlets on same side as roadster

It is a Mazda motor, but the options are endless with Toda and Webcam cams, superchargers, tons of headers, forged internals, cheap parts, and no frame cuts like the SR20 guys. So before you criticize, consider the options.
