Wow, for the cost/effort of me doing this, this one actually seems affordable to me.
And it looks good and functional. Kindof am a fan of the "slot/tab" actually since my plastic one is so outta wack its a pain to put it back up all in one piece.

Thanks for the find, Added to Hanukkah list.

Mine just got in two days ago. It'll be a bit before I install as I have to drill out and retap some seized bolts/studs where these would mount.

Also have to measure out and cut areas for my charge piping. I can already see that some additional fab will be required since my intercooler hangs lower than where the tray mounts

I finally got around to installing mine. It fit nicely. Wasn't perfect but was close. Looks great. Hopefully it doesn't fall off at COTA this weekend.

I like mine, but some massaging had to be done. My intercooler hangs a bit low which pulls the front trim down a bit. Also, I had to trim for intercooler piping.

Yeah, mine was not perfectly formed but it was close enough. It does rub a bit on my RB swaybar, but I think it will be fine. If not, I can grind it out a bit.

What do you think, is it worth the price or should I go with a new one from mazda comp for around $60?

I have one. I think it is worth the price. It fits well, its bloody solid, and a nice side benefit is that its rather reflective so i can see in the engine bay better.

The fact that's it's rigid helps especially when your trimming for intercooler piping. I nearly cut all the mounting points from my oem under tray and it doesn't extent to the front of the bumper like the aluminum does. To make a long story long, if the stock undertray is no longer a solution for you, this can be. Otherwise, toss a coin.
