    Exomotive has kit pricing on their website but you are looking at big money to make a V8 powered one.

    I am planning on building a standard Exocet when my Miata becomes very rusty in the future and the body is no good anymore.

    Looks like you'd need the kit $7000-8300 a donor Miata $5000-10000 as well as an LS3 + T56 $7500-15000 and a rear end $2500 so you'd be looking at 22-36K plus whatever other upgrades you'd want to make...... race seats, big brakes, coilovers, wheels/tires etc.

    If you wanted to do it on the cheap with a Miata motor it could probably be done for <15K

    Seems like a really similar concept to the Factory Five 818 but the question is, is it as easy to import into Canada as the Factory Five kit?
