As a rule, Miatas are known for handling - NOT acceleration. Not to say they are SLOW, by any means, but they're no RX-7...

Modded Miatas are fast as all get out.

Actually, with that Thunderbird 7.5" rear... they've added some weight in back as well.... although I'd be surprised if a 7.5" can handle the power of a 5.0L for very long. Should've went with an 8.8 or a 9"
