Welcome to the world of V8 Powered Miatas. Here at Monster Miata, we think on the "extreme" end of things. Brute torque is the name of the game here but handling, strength and reliability will not be compromised. There are a lot of scary fast cars on the road these days - the goal at Monster Miata is to provide a fun yet civilized daily driving car that can out-perform "those cars" on the track.


We're proud to say...



Our Origins

Get ready to go FAST

The Mazda Miata lends itself nicely to the torture of a torque monster V8 transplant. The overall structure of the car is more than strong enough to handle the wrenching stress of 400 ft.lbs. From "clutch dumping" to auto crossing and track events, the V8 Miata accepts unrelenting abuse. Driving to the racetrack,  flogging the car, and feeling confident it will hold together, speaks well for the conversion.

We have converted 75+ Monster Miatas in the past 30 years. It is a passion of ours. Having spoken to many gearheads, the consensus is there needs to be a straight-forward way for the average person with a toolbox to do their own V8 conversion .


For this reason we were inspired to produce the

"Easy to Understand" V8 Conversion Kit Instruction Manual.

The instruction manual and detailed photos show you the way from start to finish. The majority of the conversion parts bolt on. Though welding is required in a few areas , your local exhaust shop can easily handle this task for you. The most difficult part of the entire conversion is convincing yourself to tear into a perfectly good Miata.
