Also there is a 1200 swap.

Buy a T5. Cut out a plate, cut out another plate. Cut out 2 pieces of pipe and weld.

Or a t2 trans and weld your BP bellhousing onto the T2 bellhousing.

Lol, present good fortune aside, I stick to what I said. I suppose when the entire chassis rusts away to nothing, some parts are found for cheap.
I'm very jealous of all your rust-free NAs.

Edit: Hmm maybe I should have kept that info to myself. If anyone needs a T5, I'll sell you one for $1000.

That would be the beauty of this option, but you would have to be very careful of which version you're getting.
That being said, what does the hivemind say the most desirable T5 would be?
Everything I have experienced or read says that 90 and up world class T5s are the strongest.
I'm unsure whether some packages received stronger stuffs or not.
You can get a rebuilt world class t5 for like $700 on ebay. Why get a used one for $500?

Average asking price.
Most are 200-400, but some people have the dumb and think they're made of gold.

The fact that what you said is true is another point in this swaps favor.

except for the whole not being worth the money and effort to do with a stock world class t5 unless 6 speeds just dont exist where you live.

They do not.
I got lucky and found the one junk yard miata in two years in a 100 mile radius that wasn't vulture food... and it had a five speed.
Why wouldn't it be worth the effort if corky offered a kit with the parts he listed in post #72?
If he goes through with it, and I freely admit that's a big if, it should go like this; buy kit, bolt onto T5, bolt onto baller 1.8, pick up hella dudes.
If you break it, spend a few bucks and start over.

I'd trust a 6 speed to survive more than the t5 and the 6 speed just bolts in. Something like corkey's kit, no matter how perfect, is going to be more effort than that. You have to tram the bell housing to the bolt and stuff, hopefully you wont have to also tram it to the tranny, that would just be ******* annoying.

True enough about the fit. Strength is up for debate, although the cost benefit is definitely in the T5s corner.
I think that's a fairly small labor price to pay, but I like turning wrenches more than most.
Let's be real though, this is entirely conjecture until this actually comes to market, if it ever does.

I trust a T5 to hold more torque than the 6speed.

Over here they have started to use RX8 (cheeper than the Miata version) transmissions in Beemers to get a decent close-ratio box...

There's a TII adapter plate to a miata block that already exists

I'm just waiting to see the back half of this.
That's the half that I'll be looking for.
Then off to try and figure out the gearing that I'll need.

Bob has broken the miata 6 speed in just about every way possible to break it.

In for a potential solution.
