680 miles too many... time for the V8.

So I got time the other day to get the V6 out, and start working on the LS3 swap.

My son is working on putting a sbc 350 in a '95 Miata. Lol.

Since you are there.....
I would recommend the JATO booster aftermarket Mod.

Highly recommended.

You may need new tires though.....or wings.

Granny's speed shop has multiple "kits" to do that conversion. I was looking into it 7 years ago.

There seems to be plenty of space for a V8 in there.

You're not fooling around with a tweak here and there. You're going for the whole enchilada. The LS-3 is a great engine. Had one in my Camaro. It will be interesting to see it when your done and hear how it preforms.

Talk about being ambitious!.......I couldn't help but laugh though when I first read this. Here's one guy that's going for the whole mother load, and I had just got through reading about another guy saving a couple of bucks on a tailgate liner and gluing in a thin piece of rubber for $6.00.......I suppose I'm easy to entertain...lol
Will be interested to watch this one unfold.
