March 04, 2014

This week Chris Amos goes for a ride in a Mazda MX-5 that's gained some serious motivation by way of an LS1 V8 sourced from a 2004 Pontiac GTO. Shortly after this stripped out beast was built, the owner came out to Gingerman Raceway to do some testing and get a feel for the car. We take you along for this slightly terrifying, but awesome, ride. Everything you could want to know about this car can be found on the build page. Here are a few of the highlights:
  • 1994 Mazda Miata R-Package
  • V8Roadsters rear mount swap kit
  • V8Roadsters stage 2 Getrag rear end kit w/ aluminum drive shaft
  • LS1 and T56 from a 2004 GTO. 47k miles
