    This makes ZERO sense. It would be way easier and probably cheaper to just turbo/supercharge the stock motor to get similar power output.
    If you put forced induction on this V6 then you’re into LSx power levels and cost but it would be way easier to just do the LS swap…It’s usually better/cheaper to follow the KISS and path of least resistance plan.

    “but it would be way easier to just do the LS swap”

    Have you done both engine swaps? If not you’ll need a source for that claim. How many hours did your LS swap into a MX5 take?

    If you’re in the UK, Jag duratec engines are plentiful and whole cars can be sub $1,000. LS engined cars are not.

    Although, yes some sort of blower would probably be easier.
