10 years ago I had a Miata. There are LS1 and 5.0 Ford conversions for a Miata... This is just as sick....
no idea about the airbox but 350+ HP with a 6spd in a 1900 lbs convertible is just sick... I want one :-)

Remind me of that Honda civic with a Vette engine, trans, rear end.
Civette I think he called it.

Dont think the thing handles verry good but it's a mean little bugger.

Hysterically speaking, the engine I always wanted to bolt into one of them things was that Olds/Buick/Landrover 215 CI Aluminum V8 that GM came out with in early 60's.....Mom had a '63 Olds F85 4dr Sedan....i'ts the car that sat in the garage for about 25 years and rusted to nearly nothing had about 35K miles when I replaced the entire braking system, and sold it....engine ran ok after the carb was rebuilt....

LRover put DPFI on it, dunno if it's still in production or not....

IF I wasn't a damn 6'5" tall, I would be driving a Little Zipper like one of them thing with that V8 in it.....as it is I had to modify the seating/interior of my '72 to accomodate my lousey skeleton....

Looks like the airbox is from a Camero or Firebird 1998 - 2000 model.
