What other engines can I use in the Exocet?
Since the Exocet was designed around the 1990-2005 Mazda Miata platform, builders can take advantage of the numerous swap kit options available on the market. Exomotive worked with V8Roadsters to design an Exocet-specific LSx V8 and LFX V6 swap kit that is available in our store. Other swap kits on the market are the Honda K-series (K20/K24) from KPower Industries, Honda J-series (J32/J35) from MiniTec, and additional V8 swap options from Monster Miata. We also offer a mount-less front subframe for those customers who want to install alternative engines and weld their own mounts.
How do I insure my Exocet?
Exomotive and our customers have had success with a variety of insurers throughout the country including Rally Insurance, Hagerty, and other specialty car insurers available in the marketplace.
How do I register my Exocet?
Your Exocet kit can be registered using your state’s custom vehicle registration process. The SEMA Action Network has provided a fantastic resource and supplies a PDF file for each state that includes all the pertinent laws, forms, and processes you need to be aware of during registration. Download the PDF for your state on the SAN’s Tag and Title Toolbox page.
