ha ha, Dan beat me to it. Seriously, let me know and I might could have something. Maybe. I dunno.

The part # I supplied cross references to all miatas from 95-05.
94 shows MA02-27-600 (no A at the end) at the same price. I don't know what the difference is.
maybe they were made in the easy break oven... damn im ******* funny

interesting on the 94's...
the diff came out of a 96, so i guess no concern there

i really wonder what it would take to make welded carriers...
cast is not efficient enought unless you do a lot, CNC would cost out the ***

Do you have the broken housing? If anyone can take measurements we can sketch ideas

i have both. i compared the two, they are identical. my lsd came out of a short nose rx7 (86-87). the only reason you cant leave it in the pumpkin is because there aren't any PPF bracketry. Need miata specific bushing and it's a direct swap.

I'm lucky i have a spare because i need one myself

Is this the proper housing? The owner has it listed as a 1986-1991 RX7 housing
Thanks.

Thanks.

$200ish price in the ATL area for the used housing alone isnt unusual.
Its much easier to find a good diff with a broken housing.
