Re: V6-MX3 Powered Miata (KL Series)

You've got to be kidding me...I've been talking about doing that exact swap, ITB's and all, for almost a year.

Beat to the punch again :cry:

Or do the JE-ZE V6 swap, as Mazda intended. But remember; heavy engines compared to the I4, so you MUST upgrade the brakes. Mazda put on FD RX7 units on theirs.

Andy, do you have anymore pictures of that 1006? Maybe of the engine? Or if you can upload them to the Gallery that would be great too!

Hello All,

I was invited to drop by to discuss my KL-Miata (all call it the Kliata). I've been a Mazda guy for quite awhile -- 3 MX3 V6s and this is my 3d Miata. To give you an idea of where my head is when it comes to engines: a few years ago I had a '99 Miata, then bought my second MX3 ('92), drove them both for a couple of months... and sold the Miata. (Granted, the KL-V6 is a special breed.)

My wife, Jill, and I are long-time autocrosseres, who decided we like competing in SCCA's Street Mod2 class. We were driving my 350Z, but it is a half-ton over weight (and also too nice/new to turn into a dedicated competition car), so, this became the opportunity to build the car I've been planning for almost a decade.

It is going to be real challenge, because the class gets more exotic every year, and as good a package as mine is, I am still giving up a lot in the are aof potential power.

Anyway, I'm glad to share some info and ideas -- and maybe help a few of you put the "right" engine in the MX5.

Mark

There were 2 different versions of the 1006 (maybe the same car remodelled); project was cancelled because it was going to retial for silly money, and the M2-1002 was a flop. The other version was more like the (I believe) the intended production car. Sorry, this is the best picture I have to hand:
