I've got the BSP adapter on lock. That was the first thing I priced. Mine will also include the oil restrictor that is needed for our cars.

The tank is the only part I can think of that could be made miata-specific. The rest is just running a line and some wires.

You could probably make a 1.6 BP run off a Honda OBD I ECU if you were really bored, then you could use Hondata for a $100...
Before you laugh, and before there was Megasquirt, a cheap ECU swap was a to a GM w/ sensors, because they were easily hacked, so I would think it would be plausible with either a Honda or Cavaliar as well...There is still a mailing list for GM DIY EFI (FWIW: Bruce Bowling frequents it)

A big brake kit that doesn't break the bank. There was a good thread about using VW rotors and wilwood calipers along with a custom braket on m.net a while back. Total cost was going to be much cheaper than the offerings from Goodwin. So probably 95% of the performance for 50% the cost.

Or I said it before, a custom braket to do a 1.6 to 1.8 brake conversion.

That actually sounds like a really good idea, there are def. a lot of dyno operators experienced with Hondata.

+1 on the big brake kit that doesn't break the bank. A real nice upgrade for the track when you have extra power.

Aren't the NB brakes bolt on for NA? I don't remember seeing a bracket in any of the kits I've seen around. I've never upgraded my brakes though.

I think a DP kit for JGS + T3 setups would sell a ton. Lot of miata owners are running this basic setup. Maybe provide one DP for itnernal, one for external WG.

Considering i see corkys current mild steel dp's going for $285 i dont see why a non-seperated, mild steel dp would run more than $230 or so.

According to ATP $167 in materials for stainless minus the lower exhaust flange. I understand that one needs to recoup the initial time investment and material for a jig if they are on relativley "large" production volumes.

this flange

this oval to round
http://www.atpturbo.com/Merchant2/me...egory_Code=FLS

this step down adapter
http://www.atpturbo.com/Merchant2/me...egory_Code=FLS

and your bends from there on (from what ive seen a 90 or 180* bend and 2x 45* bends would give you all the bends you need)

Please keep in mind i do not know how to weld nor do i understand how long it would take labour wise.
