Do you think they'll make me a kit if I order one for a 1.8 miata?

This looks like a killer deal.

Will one of the kits they have listed work for a 1.8 miata?

It'd be more ideal to come out of the bottom of the turbo with a straight fitting than the 45 they have shown. The fitting (bung, rather) for the oil pan is not ideal unless you have the engine out and the oil pan accessible to weld it on. An NPT to -AN would, IMO, be better for the oil pan connection since most drill the pan and install a fitting.

Can't beat that price.

Damn Good price! Make sure to consider the following though.
1. The block does not take a BSPT, it is a straight thread British pipe not tapered and requires a copper washer for sealing.
2. You have to weld on the bung to the oil pan not the thing to do IMO.
3. It only includes 12" of stainless drain line, which isn't enough for a miata.
4. It will only work with a T3 as it utilizes a 1/8 pipe inlet and does not come with a restrictor.
Sorry if I'm being critical, but these are all things I feel that you must consider. I made sure to utilize all these in my design which I am selling in the Members Discount section.

Stan (flamenco-t) can customize the kits. He's been around and is a great seller. I have one of his old original oil line kits on my civic.

Just my .02

I could not resist, since it was so close what I have been looking for and readily available. They changed BSPT to 1/8 BSP fitting, 40" oil feed and 24" drain with bolted bulkhead bung to pan.

Called them and it should arrive next week.
$75 shipped.

Thank you for heads up for this vendor!

Hell of a deal.
Think when i ordered my stuff the most expensive single thing was my "-4AN(to)1/2-20" adapter, damn thing was $9.50. That's what i get for having a weird turbo. the 7/16" adapters are like $1.50.

Those 7/16 to -4 adapter's are actually a pretty rare item from what I can gather. I had to hunt for quite a long time to get a good source for them

I just went back and looked, I was full of crap. They were $4.20 for the 7/16" steel adapter. The -4 braided feed line was $22 with a 90* on one end though so I was happy. Is that a decent feed line price or am I blind, deaf, and dumb like Anne Frank. hahaha you have to watch Clerks 2

Hey, I think >>>>>> Honda and Mazda's use the same 1/8 BSPT fittings for their oil sender units, British Pipe thread sometimes people call them different, such as BSPT, BSP, BPT but its all 1/8" 28 threads/inch...Of course I always wonder why a metric fitting would have 1/8" ID????

It is a British Pipe, but it is not a BSPT because it is tapered. Our block uses a straight (parallel) thread that seals with a copper washer, usually signified as BSPP.
cjernigan- Depending on the length, that could be a reasonable price. I think I sell that line for about 20 or so.
