Good Lord, if the last 20% of my Supra takes 80% of the total project time, I'm in for a LONG project. Took 6 years just gathering parts, and nearly two years putting them all together. It's nowhere near done, but it is getting a little bit better each time I tinker with it a little more, fix the little stuff, get rid of squeaks and rattles, eliminate leaks, etc...

 

Also... as much as I love my Miata, the K swap seems a bit odd. I love the idea of a high revving, naturally aspirated engine that makes good power for the size and weight all through the RPM band, but... S2000. Yeah, they're a couple hundred pounds heavier, and I don't think the F20/22C engines have quite the development level as the K series do, but, in the end, it's a high revving, naturally aspirated engine in a nice handling roadster. Isn't that the end goal here?

 

Good thing I live at high altitude, makes the choice easier for my car. It's either gonna need boost or a V8. Small NA engines tend to be a bit anemic above 6500', most unfortunately.
