Problem is - over here in Europe Mazda MX-5(Miata) spare parts are traded like gold nuggets. There are 2 on ebay-Germany atm for ~30€ (40$)...
Eventually a local pick and pull has one from the car I got some other parts for my VVT swap..
I used the NB throttle cable bracket, NA cable, and NB throttle body. Had to enlarge the hole in the throttle body a bit for the end of the NA cable. I did have an issue with the cable coming out of the groove in the throttle body, but was easily solved with a small hose clamp.
NB cable makes more sense, but you can make the above combination work. Only down side is that the pedal/throttle is on the sensitive side.
My friend had a fairly innovative solution for his VICs head in his '96 car. Pulled the slack out at the throttle pedal, put a plastic spacer on it (looked to be about 1-2" long) and then a clamp at the back. I'll see if he'll send me a picture.
The cable is kind of pricey; however, designing a plate in CAD and running it on a CNC machine is definitely cheaper.
If you don't value your time and just happen to have a mill and CAD.
Dont you think thats kind of over kill for a simple bent and drilled sheet metal part?
Theres a bunch of solutions to this
1. Just use the NA cable, deal with the little bit of extra pedal slack
2. Use the NA cable with the skunk tb, less pedal slack than with the NB throttle body
3. Use the NB cable, works like OEM
4. Cut the NA cable and use a new cable narp
5. Bend up a new bracket and use the NA cable
The only one of those I wouldnt recommend is #4, because those damn cable narps always seem to slip out eventually, even if you green loctite them together. I guess the braze on type would be acceptable.
