Default Flyin Miata greddy heat shield fitment question.

Will this thing fit if I hook up stripes IC setup? Stock everything else.

I think I answered my own question with a search as White Roadster seems to have the FM shield and an IC setup in a pic of his engine bay, but I just want to double check.

Looks like you have to modify it slightly if you go to the BEGI or Turbo Tony downpipe?

only need to mod it for the DPs, and that's only if the O2 sensor is in the way.

no you have to mod it for the downpipe, because the downpipe is in the way :gay:

the shield won't interfere with an ic pipes.

Heh, I'm keeping the boost down at first anyway because my clutch won't handle too much power and neither will my rear, though I think I have a hookup on a Torsen.

I got a few thousand miles out of my clutch before having to replace it with an act.

My 6" rear is still holding. People say it's on borrowed time, but it's working.
I'll get the the 7" rear swaped when I can.

At what boost level? I just did this clutch about 7k ago (3 years ago, it's my third car). Didn't really forsee the turbo.

You're pushing out 255hp with the 6" rear? LSD or open? Mine is open.

it should work with I.C. pipes. its completely open on that side (driver side). I did have to make a small easy bracket to make it work with my 2.5" dp. its just a piece of flat bar with two holes in it to offset the soft mount location back about 1.5"

I really am curious as to which rear you have Ben, the open or the VLSD?

LSD. 1 of 2 options my "base" has (the other is A/C). Not that it matters. It's still the same 6" R&P, so every bit as likely to break--if not more likely


And it's going fine. I don't clutch-drop launch and I don't do any drifting.
I *DO* go WOT in first from a slow roll to 12 psi. All the time.

I wonder if its possible at all to heat treat that ring gear and pinion. for those of you who have broken the 6", is it the ring or pinion that goes first? or both? also, does someone have a picture of the broken gear's side profile? If I could figure out how deep it's heat treated, I could possibly get it hardened through my work, might be worth it? I dunno.
