    I know it's a very different chassis, but LOVED driving an LFX swapped Miata. It's truly the car Mazda SHOULD have built.
    I think the LFX has proven more reliable than the Pentstar too. In addition you can use the advanced GM transmissions.

    Compliant in most areas..... Do you know if that includes Colorado? Does having two PCMs confuse the emissions inspectors?

    That's what I've seen too. It's really hard to beat the performance, efficiency and reliability of the late model GM motors. I'm a huge proponent of LS swapping EVERYTHING!

    We have LS JK's all over Colorado. If you're specifically talking about the Denver jurisdiction it is tough. We have worked with the Denver Lab on several occasions regarding Hemi's with unset monitors. The number of computers does not matter, what matters is you run all the original hardware and software from the donor vehicle. This means no patched or hacked calibrations. All monitors must run and set and all mode 6 data and enhanced DTC's must be present.

    We meet all these standards. I have had talks with the Denver Lab, the Carson City guys and several California referees this year. Bottom line is they all agree as long as the swap is built properly it should be compliant.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
