Mazda Miata Powered by Corvette LS2 V8 Drag Racing [Video]
But for going fast in a straight line, it does have one major disadvantage, the fact that it only comes with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine. That’s about a third of a modern small block, and turbos can only do so much.
But what if we take out that little lump and put in a massive Chevrolet LS2 engine. This 6-liter V8 is was the first of the last generation small blocks and was introduced in 2005 with the C6 Corvette. It produces 400 horsepower at 6,000 rmp and 400 lb-ft (542 Nm) of torque from 4,4000 rpm.
All that’s left now is to slap on some fresh rubber and watch it do the quarter mile in 12.3 seconds at 111.56 mph.
