Regardless of whether or not you VLSD is good or not you are concerned with swapping out your 6" ring and pinion diff with the later (1.8L) model's 7" gearset, which is much sturdier.

This swap unfortunately does not fit inside your 1.6L 6" housing, and the later housings don't mate to your driveshaft or halfshafts either.

The 7" swap is all bolt-in, but requires the carrier, pumpkin, driveshaft and halfshafts to work. The carrier bolts in at the same points as the 1.6L unit, and the halfshafts will fit into your old wheel hubs.

Goind rate for 7" open differential complete swap is ~$450.

TorSen LSDs usually go for several hundred more.

See the FAQs for info on turning a 7" open into an LSD using the RX7 clutch pack.

you need club roadster for drift info. nobody here likes drifting. matter of fact im suprised nobody has flamed you yet on liking to drift.

if you're looking at itb's, contact fuji racing. but im telling you this isnt a hachi roku. these cars are better with turbo setups imo.

Sean who is a member on this forum is working on a 2jz swap that seems very affordable. if you can fab, you're golden. check it out sometime. use the search button.

if not, people have swapped 1.8's, sr20's, bp-t's, rb25's, and various v8's. I myself would go with a 1jz or a vh45de v8 since it hasnt been done yet and my friends all fab.

best bet is the hard dog rollcages. you can buy these at flyin miata i think or at ravenwingperformance.net

they will tell you which top you can use, or if they are fit for both tops.

yeah but its the fastest growing motor sport and im not one of the old dudes so im very open minded :]

thanks man ill take a look see cuz the top on the miata is gone to **** (damn plastic) besides egay im gonna have to junkyard a new top if i cant find a decent hard top.
and i know that miatas have that 50-50 power to weight ratio so they have been able to get sideways and its just a here and their car for now till i buy a nb or a nother daily then build the miata for drift

very helpful everyone thanks

Do a 2JZ swap with an SC300 trans, RX-7 rear, 2002 miata one piece axles, and a 65mm turbo and you will have a drift nasty miata no matter what you do. At least that is what I expect to happen. LOL

if the miata had a 50-50 power to weight ratio i believe that means your miata is putting out something like 1000 hp. lol. i believe you meant weight distribution, but if you do have a 1000 hp miata please post some vids!
