Update:
-Tint

Tinted my car today
35% Solar Gard Charcoal all around.

The cut.


S2000 door panels are only held on by 3 screws, so it was no brainer to take them out for hassle free installation.


Came out really nice

Nice functional build! Great choice of parts. I was thinking about doing a K miata build on my miata for WRL but it came out to way to much money. I rather just pick up another S2000 at that point!

Yes I agree, I also think K Miata is really an overpriced swap.
If I had to do it again, I would definitely go another route too.
But at the end of the day, it's still a Miata.
IMO, S2000 chassis are just miles better than the Miata. It's just something you can't swap.

If you are looking into an engine swap in a Miata, look into LFX and ecotec swaps.
They are pretty interesting.

Ended up just keeping the turbo engine that was in the Miata. I couldn't justify spending 8-9 grand to make the same HP.
