    I've tested lots of miata at Enviro Test stations here , And in my 10 years experience doing the test I probably have only come across half a dozen of miata that doesn't make the passing grade.This vehicles emission system never goes out of wack. Very nice and forgiving vehicle.
    Power is nothing to brag about, but it's got the power one needs for a transportation.
    Handling is superb and very forgiving.....In other words this car is fun to drive
    300k-400k is about right for the price of a 10 year old miata.---( wish I can afford one )..I have never heard any horror stories about repairs on this car...this car is for you.......

    P.S. we are doing more than 2 million vehicles in this region

    Hmmm. I thought a converted Miata is like one I saw where someone dropped in a 220hp Mustang 5.0L V8.....

    I think they were refering to RHD to LHD convertion.

    Got a photo of the V8 Miata?

    I know they did a V6 Miata Concept with a Duratec V6.

    wasn't the newer Mazdaspeed Turbo using a 1.8?

    Yup. AFAIK, Mazda's older turbos are mostly on the 1.8 instead of the 1.6 or the 2.0 engines.

    Better nga yung locally sold kaysa conversions, but the asking prices are outrageous.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    V8 powered Miatas are available stateside... I think Monster Motorsports is the one doing them.

    the regular "upgrade" is a V8 engine swap.

    though they also offer a supercharged V8 option which is good for around 400hp.

    Best Miata swaps I've seen use the SR20DE or DET, as they can make a lot of power, and still maintain the light weight of the Miata and turbo rotaries (but as these aren't as durable, they're kind of rare).

    There was one guy featured in Sport Compact Car who managed to turbo the stock 1.8 up to 400hp.

    We were offered one, kasi gusto ko rin eh.
    An 02 model, pero converted from RHD, for 500k.

    What are your thoughts on this guys?
    Reliable ba RHD conversion for Miatas?

    May nakita akong orig LHD na miata for 300k.

    I also saw a converted unit two years ago selling for less than 200. Kaya lang sagwa nung dash conversion. Eunos Roadster badges.
