For all you power mongers who thought the stock engine that comes in the 2016 Mazda Miata was a bit low on juice, the madmen at Flyin’ Miata have got you covered. Oh, in 525 ways have they got you covered.

A GM-sourced LS3 powers this mad little thing, hooked up to a six-speed T56 Tremec manual gearbox, according to our friends at Road & Track. Flyin’ Miata told the website that “a turn-key conversion could come in slightly less expensive than the $50,000 or so that FM charges for NA, NB, and NC conversions.”


Think about that for a second. You could have the 2016 Global Mazda MX-5 Cup for $53,000. Or you could buy a base Miata and have this done to it. It probably comes down to what type of person you are.

Flyin’ Miata estimates the weight to come to around 2500 pounds, which is only a little heavier than the car’s stock weight. And we all know what big power plus a short wheelbase equals: DRIFTS FOR DAYS!
