Your Projects: Powering a Miata With a Minivan Engine

As owners of a V6-swapped Miata ourselves, we had to share forum user cc454's project of fitting a V6 into a second-generation, NB Miata.

The big difference between this project and ours (besides starting out with a different generation of Miata) is that cc454 is going with a Honda J35A4 commonly found in the Odyssey while we went with an LFX out of a V6 Camaro.

This Honda V6 is actually a rebuilt engine bought from RacingJunk, so what exactly is inside the block is a bit of a mystery.

Nonetheless, cc454 has already upgraded the suspension with heavier-duty pieces and replaced parts of the brake system with lighter components.
