I know they make Plug n' Play MS systems for Miata's if you aren't completely comfortable putting one together yourself. I got a pre-built system myself, don't trust myself enough with the solder gun and getting everything in the right place.

All these V8 swaps into Miatas are grand and all, but since everybody else is forgetting he autocrosses the car. The small turbocharged 4 cylinder will make good power, will maintain good drivability, and most importantly, not completely screwup the balance and feel of the car.

Although, unless your autocross courses are fairly high speed, I would think a slightly smaller turbo would fit the application better.

Car is pretty fun to drive, but can be such a pain to work on with all of the stuff shoved under the hood.

Also, more info on car?

I love supercharger whine (the buick entertains me constantly with it) but I can get so much more power going turbo..

LS1 swapped cars usually were the same weight as a turbo 1.8 car, a turbo 1.8 (full dress) is withing like 3-5 lbs of an LS swapped car.
