Taylor Ray spent the past year swapping a LSx V8 into his Mazda Miata and documenting the process on his YouTube channel. He recently made a very detailed video breaking down the costs of the engine swap. The total came to $13,099 but he estimates could be reduced to $10,517 with better part choices. Listen as he explains what it takes to build a drift spec Miata with a LSx V8.
