The new PAC performance mazda 6. Ex Allen Johnson pro stock car. Rebodied to look like a Mazda 6. Their old car ran a pb of 6.82 and their new car is around 200 pounds lighter and much better aerodynamics wise. Their expecting to break Abel Ibarra's world record of 6.79. ;)

I talked to one of the few people who have attempted a KLZE swap and they were pretty much unanimous in saying that while it's a good motor, it isn't worth the effort to swap in. You're talking $6-10k just to swap in a motor that will only net you an 85hp gain while an LS2 would give you 285 more hp and weigh less than the KLZE swap all told.

I wasn't exactly just flooring it outright. I still don't have the tach hooked up and the engine wasn't totally warmed up yet.
