Mi'd rather have the sound of a stock miata over that.
Are you kidding????? I had been thinking of doing an ITB'd KLZE swap for a while, and then this thing popped up a few months ago, and I was like 'damn, he beat me to it'

I'd have done it for the sound alone, it's orgasmic.

I used to have an MX6 with a KLZE in it. God, that was the best thing about that car: the SOUND. When you would get that thing above 4000 rpm it would make music! The miata motor, though nice in its own right, makes vulgar noise in comparison.

Sometimes I miss that car. :(

Nope, sounds like some 350Zs also and I never really liked the way those sounded either. Maybe it's because that's the way all the cars in video games used to sound, all of them exactly the same :?

It must be the intake resonance on the V6 that you don't like as both 350z and IRTB KLZE Miata have lots of it. Have you heard any late '80s - early '90s GM cars like the Beretta or Lumina? There is something very characteristic about all those V6 engine cars. Must be the firing order or something?

Nope I haven't, but that would explain it
