I wasn't sure if I needed to start another thread or not, so I just decided to bring this one back to life for a short time.

I still linger around the V8 Miata forums/FB groups, LOL!

Anyway,...

Talked to the fella the other day about the SN95 package and he's decided to keep it, after having it for sale for 2 years... So, as they say, back to the drawing board...

I just read through your whole build process, as I'm getting ready to do a 5.0 swap. I was planning on a carb'd build, like yourself. Question? Why are you swapping to EFI? I'm no fabricator, so...

That's cool, as I was thinking '93 was the last year model you could use with his kit. I'm still kicking around the idea of going carb, over fuel injection, but I dunno right now. I'm just old...

Just curious if anyone knows if I can use a 1995 Ford Cobra 5.0 Engine/Transmission with Martin's kit, into an NB1? I'm sure the engine/trans will fit, but I'm worried about the header I'll need to...

I've never seen anyone around here sell a 5.0 for less than $5-700 and even then, it needed a lot of work and it's usually just a bare block, no ECM, harness, etc.

I avoid speed-bumps, lol.

Brad, I hate to know I'd have to buy an engine, then buy iron Mustang heads for it too... Why would I not want my mid-pipes higher than the pan? I would replace rings, bearings and probably put a...

Using an Explorer 5.0, opposed to a Mustang 5.0?

I can find an Explorer 5.0 a lot easier and a lot more affordable near me easier than I can find a Fox body 5.0. I've talked to Martin a couple of times and he said, yes, the engine will fit, but...

I keep thinking about a V8 conversion all the time. I too was set on the 5.0 swap, mainly because I wanted a Ford engine in a tiny car, just like Shelby did. I, as well, was thinking about a...

Yep, I'm still considering a V8 swap over anything else! Preferably, the cheapest V8 swap I can do, with sounds more and more like Martins' kit? I say 3-5 years, as I'm going to try and to start...
