    I might be trading the gt for a off the wall car. Lol a miata. It's a full running car that will be coming with a whole swap kit to put a ls based engine in it. All I will need is a ls engine complete and a transmission. Depending on what's the cars shape y'all might see a vortech kit and 03/04 cobra short block come up for sale.

    That does not sound like a good idea.

    What's the appeal of the Miata? Cuz it can't be the sheer badass of it. :)

    Maybe the OP is just bored with the Mustang Scene and want to do something new? Have fun with it man. As long as you like it and have fun then that's all that matters.

    I got super bored with my Mustang and even threw it in storage sooner than I had initially planned on. But as it goes... The bug is biting again.

    I'm not a Miata fan in any way shape or form lol so my vote would be stick the Mustang in a corner and forget about it for awhile. Eventually, it'll come back to you. Just my opinion tho. Whatever you do, don't let it be an impulsive decision. You'll grow to regret it later belieeeeeve me man

    Haha Frank that's exactly my point man. I kicked the idea around of cutting my losses and selling mine, then all of a sudden I'm like.... Turboooooooooo.... Sure glad I didn't sell it. I made the better choice of locking it up in my storage unit and pulling insurance on it. I should probably go wash it soon tho I put it away all salty and dirty because I was mad at it lol....

    Hope the fiance likes the car man! That just gives you a little wiggle room in the future when you say "so hun... I wanna buy another Mustang.." hahaha

    Haha you guys are awesome well I'm not doing it the guy is two hours away and he tells me that he doesn't know if he wants to trade with the ls kit too just car for car, I took that as an insult and said **** it. Soooo the new plan is I'm putting the stang back to motor stockish selling the vortech setup and my cobra short block to fund a lq4 with a 4l80e. I plan on swapping it into my 95 single cab short bed c1500 and installing cam and nitrous to race that... The mustang will just stay clean cruiser with a/c.

    But....but...it's a MIATA.

    Phew. I gotta tell you man, the only Miata worth driving is one that is full out race-prepped and gets trailered to the track. If you decide at some point you want a fun two-seater, there are better options (Genesis, S2000, BRZ/FRS, etc) :) Not to hate on the Miata's...but damn.

    I got into a spec Miata once. And I gotta say, it was very uncomfortable and small. Probably felt similar to a fat guy in skinny jeans.
