Easy there, buckaroo!
I am sure he can help you with your frame rail there, pardner. He's the quickest draw there is back east. They call him The Sawzall Kid...

i am using the BP EGT/protege tranny... i was using the older cable G series trannies from the 323GT/capri XR2. they all have the same internals except the cable trannies have a 3.85 final drive where the hydraulic trannies(protege/escortGT) have a 4.10. the kia sophias have a 4.35 and has the same case yet slightly slightly stronger than the pro/EGT.

Hmm, never seen one. Thanks. I guess there's really no easy way for that to fit on a Miata lol
