Yep, four bolts. Easy to remove. Yes, the fluid will leak out the rear of the transmission. not the differential, though. You can plug the back of the transmission, I have one made for that.

i got the clutch replaced it drives great! also had them check the crank nose and it turns out i have the good strong one not the bad one that cracks. so i am getting ready to put in an order for BEGI-S Miata Turbo System 1989-1993 BEGi would it be wise to get an intercooler? will it help it run better or is it not worth the 800$ more they want? and will i have to upgrade my fuel system or get rid of my magna flow exhaust system. ?

Will I ever read the FAQ that answers all of these questions or just keep posting constantly re-answered questions?

I hope for your sake that you didn't replace your clutch with another stock one if you are planning to go turbo. If so, you are getting ready to do it again. A turbo will require a better clutch and pressure plate.

Welcome.

And he said no larger than 16" wheels. Best performance choice is 15x8 inch for your car in the lightest weight wheels you can find. 10lbs is ideal.

Good luck.

To be fair, 15x9 is a bettter performance choice for wheels.

Not without flares or rolling/pulling, but yes.
