Just wanted to let everyone know that I'm just about finished with my auto to manual swap, just need to get the car to start, stupid wiring.

I purchased the Isis auto to man line that I listed in one of the links above from enjuku racing and it fits the car perfectly. I got a really good deal b/c they are local and had it on hand in the store. It isn't nylon coated but I could beat $30 bucks for a line that runs all the way from the mc to the slave.

Summary: thread pitches are the same between the 240 and Miata slave and MC so if you want a braided line to run between them order the Isis or Auto Power from EnjukuRacing.com.

Also just wanted to state I'm not trying to take anything away from what James has going here, he is trying to bring you guys a good product for a good deal, just though I would let people in on the clutch line seeing it was like a $60 dollar option through this.

Hm. I would pay the extra bit of cash to have the coating. Raw stainless for that length in that location is a scary thought.

Although you mean well, it is still not a very appropriate place to post this.

ripracer: appreciate the ^^^, also no worries we are all car people and drive the same particular little cars, more options is always better!!... lol... as for hardline delete... i.e. the line running directly from the master to slave is an interesting option, and you're totally right, i can't touch that 30 dollar price.... the curly q delete line that runs from the fire wall to the slave is 35 through this group buy... that is also the reason why i recomended doing this locally, as it is difficult to get the exact measurement you were talking about... the way i measured it, the line would have been like 8 feet long... lol... how long was the line that you ended up getting?

again be careful, make sure it is securly fastened down, having line that long will flex the actual line causing some loss in hydraulic pressure... think of sand rails that have stainless lines that run the entire length of the car... they loose a lot of pressure, and sure the line you are running isn't as long, but i woud be carefull...

+1 on the coating, or get some proper wire wrap or something...

superslow, appreciate the support...

I hope you have enough sets ready so I can be in for the first shipment batch, because my lines are currently leaking and need them ASAP.
