Just looked at the Toyota V12, Nice engine. Should be super smooth and plenty strong. Looking forward to updates.

By all means do not stop updating here just because of the extra 4 pistons! Regardless of the forum's name we are open to any and all Miata engine swaps here.

i am in the middle of wiring hell actually - battling the wiring and a mental block - i seem to have lost my way and confidence on wiring

so its got the bmw m3 e46 lsdiff / toyota r154 gearbox / lexus 1uzfe flywheel just blots straight on to the v12 crank / ms3 pro ecu and lots of other small changes

I am so excited to get it to start !!!!

Ive been following this build on a Miata forum. His car fell off of a lift at a shop and he's dealing with that now. Sucks.
