Video: This is what an 800+ horsepower, turbocharged, K24-powered Miata looks like

On paper, this NA Miata race car seems simple: Take an NA Miata, swap in a Honda K24 engine and then add a turbocharger.

What’s not so simple about this Miata? Its ability to put down over 800 horsepower–to the wheels–on the dyno.

Major power with not much weight - that's a nice combination.

Way too much talk. 

Video is useless without seeing it in action.

That is hauling the freight around Roebling. It doesn't sound fast at all. Then you look at how fast the front straight wall is coming toward you. surprise

That near tank-slapper at the 1:20 mark almost made me soil myself just watching the video. Good thing he has fast hands.
