You're in luck, the NB gauge sensor is built into the ECU sensor

So the coolant spacer has:

1 port for stock sensor (ECU+Gauge Cluster)
1 1/8 NPT port (Aftermarket)
1 3/8 NPT port (Heater core)

Problem solved

Maybe you could add a bung at the OLD thermostat housing for your cluster?
That'll look really slick.
Old thermostat housing should be deleted. The neck is ugggly.

I know I'm a little late, but I've got VDO gagues in my center console above the radio. and an MTX-L WBO2 in my left most dash vent. The price was nice on the VDO stuff and they feel like they are good quality. The faces are also pretty classic.

If I were to do it over again, I'd make my wiring way less shitty and make the dimming work correctly. I really like those longacre gauges.

I'll have a 4.3 open as soon as I pull it out of my car, if you want to tear it apart and take the R&P.

I've already got a 3.9 torsen though.

That sounds like work and stuff. But possibru. Reality is that i probably won't swap until winter unless someone really wants to trade me soonish.

How is your **** running, btw?

I'll buy your 3.9. To sweeten the deal, I'll throw in my 4.3 VLSD. It's pretty much superior to the Torsen in every way.

lol it's not, I'm a lazy ****. But I have been cleaning the garage out at least. Brickyard Imports has a nice selection of 6 speeds so I'll probably take a shopping trip tomorrow morning.

I'm also taking my time because FM won't have stage 2 clutches in stock until June, and I'm too big of a ***** to get an ACT XT organic.

Ordering harnesses today, have some dumb questions.

Looking at these: Camlock Harness Sets, FIA CAMLOCK | RaceQuip

6pt, bolt in. I have a harness bar that i previously used the wrap-around style with. Would this harness be ready to go for wrap-around, or do i need to buy something else?

Do we use all bolt-in for lap/sub belts on Miatae? My last one was snap in.

^^ No answer, but did you happen to notice that the 2019 set was 50 bucks cheaper?

( if you didn't, you can paypal me for a six pack )

I use snap in with eye bolts.

For the shoulders you should be able to take off the bolt on thingies, which will let you just wrap it around the harness bar.
