Most people who are doing this are restricted by racing rules that say that you have to keep the stock case, so they've got to lenghten the shaft. I'd always figured a Miata 7" diff would be the...

The actual load transfer from the wheel to the hub occurs by means of the clamping force and the friction between the wheel and the hub, through the brake rotor. Very, very little force will be...

The stainless header has thinner wall tubing 0.083" vs. 0.125" for the steel, so there will likely be some increase in noise and harshness. 304SS is not rust proof, only rust resistant, it can and...

There is such a thing as oil that's too cool, that's why the thermostat is there, to bypass the oil around the cooler so that the car will not be over cooled. It also helps the engine warm up faster....

I've read that the aluminum housing part is the same between the Miata and the FC, but the bushings are slightly different. So it should be a more or less bolt in swap. I've got a 1.8 Miata Torsen in...
