Borrow a sawz-all from someone and it should be a piece of cake.

That was core size

Though I've got a fair amount more space to work with (once I cut my bumper reinforcement out, anyway)... I have no idea how I'd fit that thing in the Miata.

I put a 20x12x3 core IC in mine. That said, I couldn't go a 1/4" bigger.

not much to show show yet really, it's a 92 white coupe, starting with a cheap *** bottom mount t25 setup just to get it running, eventually planning 400whp, maybe a 3071 not sure on a lot of things yet, might do a silvia front end conversion. planning to roll it out in the spring as i've been fixing/cleaning everything, just got oil pan back on, subframe back in, new nismo mounts. it's very dirty right now in the front from my greasy *** hands, it will be cleaned though.
