Selling my Complete Drive Train

In Short

I am starting a quote with V8 Roadster to do an engine swap

The turn key price is around $ 25k with new parts

If I can get good used parts it will be around $15k-17k

Retains stock rack, and does not need to cut the chassis

have ac and ABS but no traction control

uses a Camaro/ATS drivetrain 3.6L LFX, AY6 M6, and Camaro rear Diff

So I am going to post this so if anyone needs any components for the engine

I will have a spare one in the near future

Complete System.

and I figured I'll have a extra ECU with the Tork intercooler too if anyone is interested. .

APR Aero Package, DG Motorsport Carbon fiber Hardtop, AFE Intake, MISHIMOTO Catch Can, Forge Blow-off Valve, Full Good Win Racing Exhaust, Progress Sway Bars, Roadsters port Springs, Tork Tune Stage 1+, Tork Intercooler, Freodo DS2500Enkei Japan PFM1 17X9 , RE-71r

Awesome @klikai ! This is going to be pure gold.

I love the idea of this, I have been haunting v8miatas, v8 roadsters and flying miata myself.

Please do a build thread! I would be really interested in what's it takes to make it happen. I'm stuck all the way down in Oz, but I'm giving myself a few years before an LS3 conversion I think. I'm so enchanted by my the idea of the Abarth sounding similar to my brothers LSA, it just seems right.

What is the method of getting the magneti marrelli ECU talking the the lfx?

Just so I understand what you're doing, you're replacing the stock 1.3 with a Camaro V6 / manual 6-speed trans / Camaro rear diff? Is that V6 a DOHC or SOHC? $25K is like half of what FM wants for a V8 swap. A powerful V6 could be a good compromise between the 1.3 and an LS conversion.

It is not going to have a Marelli ECU, its going to have a new ECU.
Also it has to be programmed to the vin so I can pass new york states insepction

the LFX is a DOHC,
the V6 is usableon the track.
there is a reason why good win racing runs a V6 miata instead of a V8

Also the complete kit for the V6 is so much lighter than the V8, where as V8 the weight is around 2600lbs
It will save us weight by shedding the turbo system

I think the reason why is that it doesn't need any extensive modification to the frame and the rack

I'd be interested in the FMIC and ECU, what's your timeframe?

Need to get my wife approval first, but this is defiantly with in 6 month

They ask for a 50% downpayment, 25% when they start working, then 25% when picking up the vehicle

So much easier than trying to get more power

you know what else its good

if you want more power, it'll fit a supercharger which can match the V8 and still be cheaper + LIGHTER!!

Great project, congrats! I’m interested in the rear diff if you’re selling. Desperate for some LSD

Cheers to you mate! I would definitely subscribe to a build thread. This car with a V6 would be my absolute dream car. All the best and definitely keep us updated.
