October 23, 2012 - Meet our newest V8 conversion.
Jim's owned this 1999 for a long, long time. He put on a turbo kit pretty much as soon as they became available, and upgraded it as time went on. He's also built the motor so it's a fairly strong creature. But he's decided to make the plunge to big power. The car already has some upgrades to the braking and suspension, but we're going to do more.
One thing that makes this car different is that it's the first of the E-Rod engines we've installed. In theory, this package is CARB approved when installed in pre-OBD-II cars. In practice, that would mean finding a way to package the required headers and cats in the Miata. We'll look at that, but we don't think it's going to work. That's not important for this car because it's not from California and it's too new anyhow, but the extra OBD-II monitoring capabilities of the E-Rod system can make it easier to satisfy the plug-in emissions tests found in some states. In Jim's case, he's thinking it's better to be safe than sorry.
