how expensive would it be to ls swap a miata for real?

would it handle like a shelby cobra and just fuck my existence up?

You mean handle like shit?
Yup

>>14225421
Power doesn't affect handling and all in it adds about 100kg of weight.

If you are really set on going ls swap anon, Flyin Miata makes conversion kits, but i suggest twin turbo or turbo DOHC boi
>>
>>14225421
k well it would just be plain retarded to do that in the first place.

http://www.onpointdyno.com/?p=3857

the article talks about tractive forces and how they play a role in why you don't need 400ft/lbs of torque at all in a performance vehicle. and how hp is a more important figure than torque for performance applications.


>>14225473
>only 100kg.

okay, throw 220 lbs of sandbags into the front of your 2300lb car and tell me it doesn't affect the handling you fucking inbred autist.
fuck off with that meme already, it makes the weight balance shit, LS engines are shit and boomer tier shit.

THE ONLY reason people do this is because #1 they're common engines, and people think a 1000$ ls engine taken from some shitty 2000's pos camero/corvette is a good idea to stick into a performance car, and #2 they're under the impression that LS engines are easy to swap into shit, and that the gain is worth it, but the fact is that they're a shitty outdated engine, and only exists because it gets boomers panties wet. They're terribly inefficient for their size, tall as fuck gearing that is needed to put the power down fucks up the performance on the track, the added weight and size fucks the car, and most importantly, it's not as easy as slapping this pile of shit to the stock drivetrain. Custom fab + wiring is needed, and good luck maintaining driveability on the street.

The fact of the matter is that the fastest street raced time attack cars are all using small turbo engines because that's how a performance car should be built. F1 cars do not use high displacement low revving engines either for this reason.

It's not a cheap build, and you'd be far far far better off putting a built turbo 4 banger like a k20 into it with a turbo if you actually give a shit about performance instead of dick waving who can cram the shittiest engine into a small car because "hurrdurr mini corbette!" "hurrdurr muh shelbu!"
>>
>>14225890
why are you so mad? the miata was primarily designed for the american market and 100kg is a small child over there. the chassis can take it.
>>
>>14225890
>F1 cars do not use high displacement
only because audi and Mercedes were being cheeky cunts
that and the fia is always trying to slow the cars down however they can
>>
>>14225908
are you actually fucking stupid? My point was that LS engines are shit and americans are completely fucking retarded for thinking it's worth it to swap it into a small car. Which it's not for both cost and performance reasons, unless you're building a drag car (which is fucking stupid) which the miata is a shit platform to start with for that, so congrats, your car is both shit on the track, because of the shit weight balance and added weight, but it's also shit on the drag strip because you can't stick big tires on a miata, and the chassis is shit for it. So you've dumped 15 grand into your "performance vehicle" that has shit performance.

>>14225930
F1 cars have historically never been low revving high displacement engines because you don't fucking need 400ft/lbs of torque because fucking gearing makes up for any lack of torque you fucking idiot.

"torque is needed in a performance application" is a fucking meme made by americans to try and excuse their shitty engineering because they can't make an engine with more than 100hp/l without it blowing up.
>>
>>14225890
>>14225975
shut up you dull cunt
>>
>>14225890
if you think that an LS weighs 100kg more than a dressed mazda BP then you're WRONG. the ls1 weighs 457 lbs whereas the 1.8 IRON block weighs 433 lbs. That's the weight penalty of a turbo kit but reliable and torque everywhere. An LS isnt exactly low revving either. with nothing more than valvesprings (lol 100$ and 6 hours leisurely labor) it can rev to 6800rpm on stock bottom end. how much rpm you need nigger? protip: that's where a stock B18B revs too which is regarded as a rev happy engine.
>>
>hurr ls swap it bruuh watch me Vape and tip my snapback Broo

>>
>>14225421
The Cobra chassis was pretty much entirely reworked to handle the 427. A miata is not designed for an LS3.
>>
>>14226151
why would the pushrods bend at less than stock revlimit?

>>14226128
thats off the top of my head. I'll weight (lol puns) for you to scour the internet to prove me wrong which I very may well be. Maybe that's the weight with transmission? anyways it doesn't matter because, from what I'm seeing, the weight distribution only changes to around 52/48. that's a battery relocation and fiberglass hood and keeping the gas topped off.
>>

>>14226163
This.
For example rx7s and 8s not sure about older mazdas but I know for sure that 7s and 8s were designed to have all the weight behind the front axle to get as close to 50/50 as you can get, the car was designed for god tier handling dont shit on mazdas dream

>>
>>14225421
It'll handle like a pig, the suspension and drive train aren't designed for that kind of power or torque. You could make it work, but it's more than just an engine, you'd have to strip out the entire driveline and suspension setup along with the engine, and it would still probably not handle as good as a stock Miat
But it'd be fast as fuck in a sort-of straight line

You realize that most of the weight in the V8 swap comes from the transmission and not the engine, right? Which means that the added weight is in the center of the car.

Which means you're an ass blasted idiot who knows nothing about V8 swapped Miata's.

The difference between a 1.6+trans and LS1+T56 is waaay over 200lb. So keep posting that tiny screenshot of some random swap done by bob where he totally didnt remove any other parts that would otherwise be on a stock car or replace parts with lighter materials. And his methods for weighing the car before and after were totally identical, not one less millimeter of fuel in the tank or whatever.
