how about adaptor plates for those of us considering using a different radiator (less width for beside the radiator intercooler piping)...... It would be nice If I could fit a honda race core in there with a single spal fan..... and be able to make some nice ducting in the limited area that I have to work with....

What do people do now for attaching the RX7 tranny? seems like a good idea but again, i have no way of designing this part.

I'll be installing a pair of MOMO Starts in my car fairly soon so if adapter plates are needed for that I'll have those available.

All the other ideas are doable I'm sure but I need drawings

A shifter boot ring? I've always liked the look of those. Would be neat to have one on the stock center console, functional or not.

could make one dirt cheap if you had a machine to cut it with. I made an air filter adapter for my AFM for $1.35. Always cheaper to make things yourself.

If you could make a 1.8l intake manifold flange from steel I'd buy one.

that might be cool. I don't think it would look good unfinished for very long though...you'd want it anodized or painted

Not sure what they are called but the aftermarket (for 90-93) plate that keeps air from travelling over the radiator. The ones that everyone sells have a cutout for the hood latch. I use hood pins so my latch is gone and would love to have one built without that damn hole.
