After the next dyno if the car survives I will grab another 1.6 and do a small build of the motor. I am still rocking the 1.6 open diff. I have all the parts needed to do my 1.8 rx7 clutch type diff. I will get that soon. Maybe a winter project or sooner if the stock rear takes a dump. I may upgrade the brakes and suspension. It has aftermarket front an rear sway bars, I have no idea what they are. I haven't looked into them much. I purchased the car from a auto auction would have been cool to meet the previous owner. It was obviously well taken care of.

Did you install these in seats that previously had no speakers? If so, were the mounts for the speakers in the seat frame already (ie do all stock seats have this possibility), or are the speakers just kind of perched in there?

There were not speakers in the seats, the wiring was there though. There in there just like the picture shows. I am not sure about all miatas though.

How did you mount it at an angle?
Yes I answered ya! Chris Ludwig mounted it but I do believe that it come with a bend in it from gm if not u could bend it in a vice. There where some flaps he cut off while where mocking it up. He has done all the work with them.

yup!

Nice to see you again!


Been awhile on here. I haven't really done much with the miata besides just put miles on it. Last weak the high pressure oil line feed to the turbo sprung a leak but it was caught before anything was hurt. Getting a new one made this week. Hopefully my next post will be a 300whp dyno plot from the greddy 15g

Reverting to this topic, my 90 has the mounts for the speakers in the headrests, but no wiring. Hope that helps

Woot! Got it out and going this weekend. Gotta replace the aem 02 sensor already, boo. Ordering some ID's and replacing the 950cc haltechs. May also order some tires and start getting the diff replacement in motion, would like to hit a autocross event or two this summer.
