I got mine at HD...but it's a coldside reroute on a 1.6L.

Pretty easy deal. If I could go back I'd hunt down one with a 90* bend built in and use straight hose from there to the rear neck instead of the $23 funky hose I bought to do the same thing.

Cool beans. I think my dad has a ton of pipes like that around his garage so I should be set.

I dont know why anyone would pay the prices that Begi ask. However there is a simpler solution than making your own.

The Jackson Racing CAI for the 1.6 uses a thermostat spacer to make room for the intake piping.

It's aluminium, It's fat, It's ready for tapping, and best of all its only $15!!!!

You can order it as a spare from moss here Mazda Miata Parts & Accessories at MiataMania.com

The part number is 051-046

I've read a TON of threads with people mentioning that exact part number. When I go on that site, and key it into the search it doesn't return anything at all. I searched their whole catalog too just in case, and there is absolutely NOTHING in there about a "spacer".

So maybe the only way to get it would be to call them? Cause it sure isn't on their site.
One of the reasons I made my own is cause I wanted to make it a teeny bit different. I'm making everything 1 piece and making the whole thing a little bigger/sturdier. Its costing me 40 total, so I guess its not too bad.


BTW: I am also using a KIA Sephia 97 waterneck. It (to me) looks a lot better than the protege and miata waternecks in that the outlet is a bit bigger ID, and inside it looks a LOT smoother/better flowing. Its the same shape as the protege, just better flowing.

It's not...same part I grabbed.

Greg is right though...it's not ready to go on car. You will need to drill and tap to suit your sensor and heater core supply needs.

I work in a machine shop and still never got it done. It has sat on my shelf for two months now. I finally went spacerless.

Almost done. Needs a teeny bit of cleaning up, and might make the sensor sit a little lower since it is super close to one of the bolts that holds the coil pack. We'll see

I just ordered up the $15 one from Moss ($23 shipped). Got it yesterday. No groove for the thermostat, but I'm either going to get one machined in or just use it as a spacer and leave the thermostat in the head. You may ask why use the spacer, but the issue on my 1.8 is that to go coldside you have to space the water neck up to clear the coolant boss that feeds the oil cooler. So I'm thinking of drilling and tapping my head for the heater core (like spacerless), but I still have to figure out the mounting for my sensor.

I know it's been posted before, but lots of good info and pics here:

18psi:

One word: COPS - Just do it.

And yeah...forgot about the spacer not having groove for thermostat. It's just that...a cheap blank. Besides being the right shape for the hole it doesn't get you very far. Saves a little mill and drill...but you have to chuck it up anywho...

Definitely planning on going COP in the future. Just haven't got to it yet. I even have a set of them laying around.
