1. 1.8 open converted to RX7 LSD:

Parts:
94-05 1.8 Miata open assembly
84-91 NON-TURBO Rx7 clutch-type lsd (89-91 is a viscous, don't bother)
94-95 Miata stub shafts or 86-88 RX7 stub shafts and 94-95 Miata half-shafts
or 96-05 Miata axles (no stubs needed)
RX7 Circlips (fit onto the end of the stubs/axles, miata clips will not fit)
94-05 Miata driveshaft
Miata Ring and Pinion

Proceedure:
Open the 1.8 miata & pull the open diff. Decide what ring and pinon to use (easier to use the miata gearing, costs more $$$ when having a shop set both the pinon depth and backlash). Bolt the correct ring gear to the RX7 LSD. Drop it in, set the backlash (and pinon depth if swapping pinon gear), and reassemble the housing. Swap/install as normal.
You know, I have a friend whos OBSESSED with FC RX7s... I've seen several turbo and non-turbo differentials laying around his garage. I read the FAQ a long time ago and I guess this swap just didn't occur to me until Scott just mentioned it. (I'll see if he has a spare one and what he'd want for it)

Yeah there is an FC in a junkyard not far from here. It's only been there a couple of weeks. I wonder if it still has the diff.
