Yes, it's been discussed many times. There's a handful of us on the board that've done the conversion and another couple handfuls of people on www.miata.net forum who've done the conversion.

The company that sells the hardware to install is...Mazda.

Racing Mazda has a kit for the 8" Turbo II rear-end, but I've never really heard of anyone who's bought/installed it: http://www.racingmazda.com/miata-clutchflywheel.htm

The downside to that kit is that it's intended to retain the PPF and, therefore, a stock Miata transmission AND the Turbo II diff is 4.10 final drive ratio. While the 6-speed Miata diff. is proving to be pretty strong, it would not be a well-geared car when paired with a 4.10 final drive.

Racing Mazda had some serious business problems a year or two ago, so I'm not even sure in what state the company is at the moment.
