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

Keep the sexy coming.

Mad respect man. Not sure how I missed this thread but I have some hate/love/envy feelings right now with how sweet this car will be.

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!
