You could probably do this with no stress on your clutch *or* engine. Fully engage clutch, in, say 2nd gear, apply 50% throttle, count black stripes. :-)

In my area, there are numerous speed limit signs with a radar display below the sign showing your speed. San Antonio must be more relaxed. :-)

Yes and no. On the one hand, 50 hp is harder to differentiate in something this crazy fast. On the other, why do something half-assed on a project like this? I have a set of V8R long tubes on the...

LOL. So make something more nose heavy and overpowered than a standard LS conversion, which is already silly fast. It's your money. :-)

At some point, you have "enough". The LFX I'm sure is "enough". I just wanted something really silly, so I built an LSX. I'm old, and a V8 just does things for me that a V6 can't. Torque is...

Martin at Monster Miata vented my hood for me. I had a local shop strip it and paint the bottom to match the car. I like the vintage/racy look of the bare aluminum.

Still not done with wiring, but I'm getting close. Now that I'm able to use all the revs, this car is ridiculous, stupid fast. It's quite a test of self restraint.

I wonder if that's because you're at altitude, and there is not as much mass of fuel / air going through the engine. So less need for a less restrictive exhaust.
