YOU PUT THE CUM­MINS IN THE MI­ATA AND YOU SHAKE IT ALL UP

Pasmag (Canada) - - Trending Tr. -

Are you as­tounded by the images here? Yeah, us too. Those are ren­der­ings mind you, but the idea is just so out­landish that you just have to love it. The guys at Pis­ton­head Pro­duc­tions are tak­ing on the mad task of jam­ming a 4BT 3.9L I-4 Cum­mins turbo-diesel en­gine into an NA chas­sis Mazda Mi­ata. Why? For a good cause.

Ja­cob Get­tins, who’s helm­ing this pro­ject, was in­spired to work on cars from learn­ing the ba­sics in his high­school shop class. After see­ing the de­cline of the pro­gram and lack of fund­ing at the high­school in his com­mu­nity, he put this whole thing to­gether to raise money for fu­ture gear­heads. Once com­pleted, the “Soot Sa­lon” will be toured around dif­fer­ent events in North Amer­ica to show off and com­pete in drift. To date, the build has raised over $10,000 and will be tak­ing place this June! Stay tuned for more cov­er­age on this ex­cit­ing pro­ject.
