I did make the moulds. But I am considering making some changes.

I figured I should check the port match from the head to intake since I am changing intakes. Lucky I did, the manifold is almost 15mm too low. I think this is a GTR head, not an MX5 head. Would explain it. So now the inlet has to have bits welded to it, and all the holes redrilled. I picked up the 1000cc injectors. I assembled the 3.6 Torsen diff, replaced the bushes with nolathane and fitted the lot into the car. PPF is on, tailshaft is on, the whole exhaust is on. The worst part is trying to find the nuts, bolts and bits that I removed 6 years ago.

That's not a brace, it's my exhaust hanger. Solid mounted. I have already driven with it on my other car, it works fine. Plus I have near solid engine mounts. And there is a flex join.
