Quaife 5 speed wide ratio transmission. Brand new, in box.
Flyin’ Miata sold their Quaife Transmissions for $3995 when they were first introduced plus a $450 core charge ($4445 total) (http://forum.miata.net/vb/showthread.php?t=272723
). The gears alone sell for $2695 uninstalled, then add synchro rings, bearings, forks, and seals ($600) plus installation ($400-1000?).
I’ve never seen one of these come up for sale used, so this is a very rare opportunity to purchase the Quaife gearset at a much reduced price over new. This is brand new, never used.
This transmission came with a car that I purchased in May 2010. The previous owner had planned on installing it, but decided to sell the car before he had the opportunity. I am parting the car out…this is the first piece to go. Here is some more information about the car.

“Thunder” – a big turbo and 405rwhp
Original for sale thread here:
1999 Mazda mx5 - $15000
An important note: when I bought the transmission, the seller told me that Quaife accidentally shipped the gear set with the input shaft for the RX7 gearbox which is a little shorter than the Miata input shaft. Quaife subsequently replaced the input shaft , however that is not currently installed in the gearbox. It will be included in the sale. I can’t say for certain whether the transmission will work as is with the ¼”-1/2” shorter input shaft – you’ll have to consult your favorite Miata transmission expert to find out for sure.
If you would like to estimate shipping costs, I will be shipping from 30316 and will drop off at FedEx or UPS. The transmission is boxed up and ready to ship – the box is 26x17x16 and weighs 85lbs.
$2000 + shipping.
