    Exocet Miata MX5 LS1 Swap

    Alright so we know the LSx will fit into a 1990-2005 Miata and the they offer a Exocet for the same years. Now an LS also fits in this Exocet with a T56. Now my fabrication skills are novice at best. Would a Moser 12bolt fit in back of the Exocet or dose it need to be a different rear? Could I take a 1999 Trans Am and fill in the shocks and drivetrain?

    For reference:

    What are your thoughts? I think this would be a blast if it can be done for the right price....

    My neighbor has a Miata and I keep thinking every time I see it how fun a LS motor would be in it.

    I am going a different direction as the shipping cost is over 4K to go from GA to HI. Maybe when I get back to the main land it will be more feasible.

    Older gent here in town that drives a Miata with an LS2/T56 swap. He hits nearly all the shows and cruises it to the breakfast get togethers on Saturday mornings.

    I've seen a Solstice with that done in Dallas. One scary fast ride. All in the spirit of Carrol Shelby.
