I think best use of W12 would be to de-stroke to maybe 3.5l, ITBs, super-hot cams. Make it revv 12,000rpm and swap into Miata.
Sounds expensive, COOL, but expensive. Once you open an engine it seems like you're always in for a couple grand minimum and a change like that woud be custom crank at $3-5k, pistons at $1500-2000, porting which would be $2k min, then custom valve train for another 5k...it adds up fast
Or you say, yay, bently has a 630hp twin turbo version so it can be done.....a pair of turbos is $2-3k (maybe used for a few hundred), some pipe and sunh another $500 and done. The pull from the darkside is hard to resist....but there is nothing quite like the crackle from a NA and massively cammed 12.
