Certainly sold mine too cheap if that's the case. And charged $300 too little for a 5 speed trans

Those ************* overcharge for everything. I wouldn't buy anything from them, hdegroof is a much cheaper alternative and he's friendlier.

Miatakingdom may have the selection available on a more regular basis, but if you're willing to wait you can get it for about 1/2 to 1/3 the price from Hdegroof.

Also, if you want a viscous, I'll be selling mine shortly. I have a torsen to install.

I got my Torsen... from a 96 I think... for $700 that includes diff in pumpkin, axles, hubs, and propshaft.

From a dude on Craig's List, he would've installed them for another $150 but I figured screw that I'll do it myself.

I will support hdegroof whenever he has parts that I want. He is very responsive with communications and charges a fair price for shipping and often has killer deals on his parts. I bought a set of "R" bilsteins with springs and shocks for $125 shipped from him before.

I'm definitely not a fan of Miatakingdom since his prices are so out of the ballpark on all of his parts.

I've bought so much stuff from Hdregroof, he's a good guy for sure. In fact, if he had the torsen I would've bought it from him. Too bad ******* Planet Miata is using eBay as a salvage yard now and buying everything cheap up there is.

I got a 00 intake from miatakingdom once. the BIN price was $150 but I offered him $100 and he took it. It came from a automatic car and he thouhgt it was different. His other 99-00 manifolds were like $300. I felt like I was doing the miata community a service by giving his high price parts the shaft.

MIATAKINGDOM SUCKS -
If you think the price for the differential is fucked up from them - Check the price out on these.
