How's it going? I live in Kissimmee, but travel to Tampa fairly often for work. Came to this site mainly looking for track days and buy/trade stuff. I am a welder/mechanical engineer currently working in the fishing boat industry, designing and building center console towers, but prior to this I have always worked in the automotive industry.

I had a 99 10AE Miata a few years back, but sold it in favor of buying a couple (yes, 3 in total) Corvettes, but finally decided to buy another 99 10AE. Debating if I want to try trading this car because I kinda feel bad drilling holes in the body, swapping it to a V8, etc when I am sure someone would enjoy the car the way it sits. So if anyone knows, or is looking, I would be willing to trade for a 6spd NB if they are looking for a 10AE.

I do track days and a couple of others here do as well. I haven't been in a few months because of vertigo but expect to go when some of my running buddies get their cars back together. It isn't much fun to go alone.

Welcome from St. Pete. Even as an old school GM V8 aficionado, if I were to undertake a Miata swap today I'd probably have to go with something like the 335 HP V6.

Welcome, my Miata is a V8. However, if doing a swap today it would be LFX 8-speed automatic combination. Easier to drive with more than enough power.

The more I am looking at potential swaps or turboing the BP, I am really starting to sway towards a K-swap. This goes against everything I have ever said haha.

I've always wanted to try to piss up a rope. I think I've just found a source of inspiration. ](*,)
