The pic on the CL ad is for an NB. He's just showing "stock" photos.

If I were in that area, I'd snap it up in a heartbeat, especially after seeing whaaamx5's in person.

That's my old hood. I guess Brad didn't want to deal with the modification that would need to be made either.

What exactly has to be done to make the hood work properly anyway?

WTF would Brad post it on CL instead and not here first?

You need to clearance the area above the timing belt cover, especially so with 90-93 chassis with 1.8 motors. It *should* drop into a 90-93 with stock motor, but I believe Brad is running a 1.6 so...

whaaamx5 clearanced his to fit, his (94 or 95) with 1.8 motor and it looks and fits fine.

The hood "should" work with a 1.6. It hits the front of the valve cover on a 1.8.

In order to use it on a 1.8, you would have to cut a good chunk of the vent area. More cutting than I was willing to deal with.

we just need to trim a bit off it. Brad's moving and doesnt have a place to store it anymore really. I was going to help him this weekend and totally forgot, I think he put on CL to try to unload it really fast before his lease ends.

I'm now trying to convince him to keep it here in my office, or in my garage until we can get 'er done.

yeah they molded it so the "extractors" that scavenge, sit too low and hit the valve cover, you need to take about 1" off the entire edge to clear the valve cover. I have an air cutting wheel tool, brad = dremel.

and for those of us with 99 motors in NA body, can we expect more issues due to the larger intake mani?

The "cutting" shouldn't be anything more than some simple grinding and sanding. The hood is going to need some paint prep anyway probably.

While we're on a hood subject, what is a stock Mazda NA hood worth? I have an extra in good shape, complete with greddy carb sticker affixed to the underside.

When I was looking around at them to make a hood like your project hood, I saw them range from $100 to $250ish depending on condition. However, I did find one for $50 because it had a few hail dings in it.
Oh, and the Greddy sticker adds $50 to the value by default. lol

I am considering building some little "blocker" to seal up that area above the spark plugs.

we made sure to cut the least amount possible. I wouldn't be too concerned about water, only when parked during a downpour, typically when we don't leave the miata out.

here are two others cut to show the difference:

what's rediculous is how erebuni got away with selling something that doesn't come close to fitting without cutting.
