I am fortunate to have a cnc mill and tig welder at home so I was able to machine a miata flange, cut off the honda flange, and weld on the miata flange. I also welded on a tab to attach the stock intake support to help prevent the welds from cracking.








CNC'd flange






CNC'd throttle cable mount and block off plate.

I'm using the miata tb for now but will be switching to a honda one sooner then later. I was doing a lot of things at once and didn't want to deal with wiring in the honda tps and iac at the time.

Some other stuff I made for this car:





Absurdflow copy low mount manifold. It is mild steel to help with cracking and ceramic coated inside and out.






My downpipe. 3in right out of the turbo.






Full 3" stainless exhaust.







Intercooler piping.

Power steering outlet fitting. Now it avoids the turbo.



Coolant rerout. The thermostat is pretty far from the head. I cut the float pin out in the tstat and enlarged the hole to 3/16". No issues with temperature spikes. Temperatures stay around 180* whether im crusing or beating the ship out of it. Tstat access is a snap. I also added a 1/8" npt plug at the top of the tstat housing for bleading purposes.
