Thanks, it's from Malaysia (I hate these letters but it's jdm). I really didn't like the usdm ones nor did I care for what the aftermarket offers.

Sr20 is good but gas milage isn't (I have the ga16de which gets 35ish mpg 50/50 city hwy). Also my Miata is my toy car so that's the way I am trying to keep it. She has like 213K on her and starts every day without fail. The b13 transmissions (ga16de and sr20de) tend to go bad but the b14 transmissions are: cheep, easily swappable, and never break.

Oh, when I said the transmissions tend to go bad I should have also stated it is the 5th gear that goes out, not the entire gearbox.

Chris, there was a guy selling a 4 fog in NJ for cheep a few months back on sr20-forum, it may still be available.
