G10 powered Miata in Jackson Michigan

Hi ya folks!

Last year I put a Suzuki G10 engine in a Mazda Miata. MX5. I documented most of the major issues involved on another forum.

The project required a modest amount of fabrication and took about six months of evenings and weekends to complete.

The swap was a success and Im getting 45+ MPG in real world driving. I can get over 50 MPG if I modify my driving.

The project was a low cost prototype to evaluate the concept. I made a lot of compromises to keep the weight as low as possible. The finished weight is 1960 pounds with a full tank of fuel.

I drive the car on a regular basis and it is very reliable.

I look forward to being a contributing member.

Jim
