WTF? go out and learn how it behaves then so you can be comfortable with it. Mine does fine, it'd do better with ABS, but it's no worse than any other non ABS equipped vehicle I've driven, and a whole heck of a lot better than quite a few.

Sorry Rugger... Damn that brace looks heavy, any Idea on what the weight of it will be? I'm curious to see how it compares to the FM X brace.

No worries, conversation in here is fine with me.

It's 50lbs as designed......21.5 heavier than FMs. It is also $345 cheaper as I'll only have $50 in materials in mine. FM's is fancy, but I'm not a fan of it.

Fascinating build--especially since it isn't your typical Monster Miata build.

Kudos for doing all the fab work yourself--lots of respect!

^^ It's very much a one of a kind. SB Chevys have been done, but I've never seen one coupled with a Muncie and some fat rubber in the rear. I picked up some fiberglass fender flares in case I need to cut the fenders for clearance.

Today I was able to get the frame stiffeners fabricated and installed. I decided to bolt them in and the X-brace, stiffeners and tranny mount will all be one piece.

I had not seen those. Damn, those are high-end conversions. I know that some of the guys are using the Lexus V8, but that supercharged one is nuts. 430 hp out of that aluminum V8 is awesome.

An A for effort, but an F in execution.

Don't you feel bad enough already that you drive a Jeep? Really now, don't you feel inadequate enough that you aren't even in a real Jeep to begin with? Or sporting tires that are stock on most vehicles now?

Doesn't the feeling of FAIL just get a bit too overwhelming at times? But you know what would really help right now? A nice glass of vodka. Yeah, take one. Don't forget to pop a couple of Tylenol PM. Or maybe the whole box. Doesn't that just take the load off your shoulders?

I know it would make me feel better if you logged the fuck off life and didn't come back Now lube up your knuckles and go fist yourself.

HEY GUYS!!!! I have a D30 and 31 BFG's on my xj sport, along with no fab skill, yet I can still talk trash about someone shoe horning a 327 into a MIATA without bolt on's. Sorry to keep off subject but I saw the shit and it angered me.

Bitchin' build. That's gonna be a bad ass miata. As far as the dude calling you gay....... Well you know what they say about a guilty mind. Keep the updates coming.

Don't worry about this guy. My "guess" is that he is a punk 22 year old from the Tampa area that is till living with his parents. He probably spent the first 9 years of school being molested by Catholic priests. His birthday might even be June 18, 1985......but I'm just guessing.

I bet he even may have been an eagle scout, or claim to be anyway. He's probably stupid enough to get busted for walking around with an open container though

you're a turd. if you knew anything about vehicles you'd know that miatas are bitchin little cars. they will out handle many other vehicles on the road. sure they are not for everybody but they definatly don't make you gay.
i'd much rather have my miatas than an xj with 31's. and you actually listed a dana30 in your signature. sounds like you are the gay one

Do you really want to be the next n00b that gets blasted for clouding a great build thread?

Just some food for thought.
