Asked by Oct 02, 2009 at 09:08 PM about the 1991 Mazda MX-5 Miata

Question type: Car Customization

I want to make my gutlesssss Miata have more power. I love rotaries and i have 2 rx7's. An '88 Turbo II drift car and an '80 Sa22. I want to turbo my stock motor, put a carburated 13b, or a 13b-t. The B6P-t and 13b carby would be about the same price and the 13b-t would be like twice as much. What should i do?

It is a 1991 Mazda Miata. It is SLAMMED on 5" dished 13's and it has a welded diff. YES i drift it.

Well, a rotary would be seriously sweet in a Miata :) and it's cool that you drift it, i'd say whatever floats your boat, both paths would have plenty of performance potential, with the standard engine having more all around long term reliability (go 100s of thousands of miles without a rebuild). Good luck whatever choice you make :)

Well my stock motor has 2009,000 miles and it runs SUPER strong. I want a 13b carby really bad.

well, something else to consider is complexity, it would be a lot simpler (i'm assuming) to modify the stock motor already there, than to swap it for a very different one and modify the new engine.... though, it sounds like you wouldn't have too much of a problem
