Thank you for picking a proper Honda engine swap instead of a lame *** K series.

Keep the sexy coming.

Thanks for the comments guys!
Should have more updates this week as the cage is almost done and starting work on the subframe.

Building a new rearend for the car as well. Had a cast iron 8.8 and rebuilt trackloc with carbon discs. Going with an aluminum 8.8 and Torsen T2 now.

It is both a blessing and a curse, the reason I love miatas and the reason I hate them. Its how our cars are affordable trackday toys, but also how we outgrow them so quickly.

Some updates, jigging up the factory subframe to make a tubular one!


And some welds on the cage!

You should donate that jig to mt.net when you're done with it so we can all pass it around and make tubular k members.

Subframe jig all done ready to make the tubular subframe!


New wing mounts, mounting directly to the frame this time!


And finally starting to look like a jungle gym!
