I've got this in my Miata.

Wait, no, no I don't have this. I wish I had this. I wish I had a Miata. Then I wish I knew someone who could would put it in my Miata.

Art.

I wonder if it'll cost more or less than a clean 997 RS 4.0?

it's cool, but I don't get the fascination with an air-cooled engine.

hahaha. I get that, but there are also disadvantages. There's a reason every major car manufacturer has gone away from them, they can't perform cooling with the same efficiency of a liquid-cooled engine. It's outdated, inefficient tech.

As to weight, there are many, many parts of the car where weight-saving tech can be applied more efficiently, without sacrificing things. For instance, the IP base beam can be made of magnesium instead of steel (I worked on a project where we did that) and you automatically save 10lbs just there.
