Flyin’ Miata’s will build you a V8 Fiata

Have you heard of Flyin’ Miata? If not, these are the guys that’ll shoehorn a GM LS V8 into your favorite generation of MX-5 Miata. Today is GM LS V8 day!

For a price, the guys will not only drop in a 5.3-litre to 6.2-litre V8 into your car but tie it onto a T56 6-speed manual gearbox, which is in turn attached to an aluminum-bodied limited GM slip rear differential. But that’s not all. They’ll also seriously upgrade the suspension, reinforce the chassis with revised mounts, slap on big brakes and throw in massive rubber for good measure. The bonus is that car looks almost completely stock and with a minimum output of 300 horsepower and 300 lb.-ft. of torque, that equals lots of surprising speed.

As you probably know, the recently introduced Fiat 124 is a rebadged Mazda MX-5, albeit with a few tweaks. The point is that as of now, Flyin’ Miata will be happy to treat your faux-Italian roadster to a full mechanical makeover. Again, for a price.

And what is the price you ask? Excluding the purchase price of said Fiat, expect to dish out $50k USD for the whole enchilada.
