what year do you have?

If you have a 1.6L you can simply get the 1.8L brackets and reuse your existing calipers to use the larger 10" 1.8L rotors and pads.

see the archive.

I doubt they'll fit. If you have the brackets it takes about 15minutes to go find out yourself.

Hmm I have two FCs sitting in my shop with my Miata right now.. If I get bored I may take a braket off one and see how they measure up.

sorry, i wasnt really clear on that. I meant that i was wondering if rx7 brackets will fit on my 1992 miata calipers. i was looking for the older year brackets from a miata but there surprisingly hard to find at the pick and pull. I happen to see a lot of rx7s there though so i was just wondering.

Few Miata here has fab new bridge brackets to fit FC/FD calipers. Furthermore, you will need to find brake disc to fit your hubs.

Racine, WI. I think Roman may have been there a while back when my friends were running their parts sales out of it.

IIRC, I've seen rx7 (FD i believe) caliper kits for the miata, required custom brackets.

I believe I've seen a kit that includes a wilwood based front package and brackets for rx7 calipers in the back.

Oops you are correct, I should have known considering my SE originally came with 4lug hubs before the PO swapped it. There must be something in the water up here.. Because im losing it!!
