Exclamation 8.8 ford rear end swap pics anybody?

i wont lie to you and say i havent tried looking at the boss frog or flyinmiata set ups and tried to figure out their set ups. tis only natural in my american lazy cheap **** ways to try and under price people haha.

but in all honesty for those of you that have looked into this swap the "KITS" () they sell are nothing more than thin sheet metal with a few holes and a bend or two in them... scary stuffs dudes... only thing worth buying from a vendor/company is the axles... simply enough said!

i want some info and pics of any 8.8 swapped miatas you guys have. my final goal is to make this swap realistically priced. because im NEVER gonna spend 500-950 for shet metal. i want a tubular or at least beefy **** set up holding my rear end in place. lol. now of course if i can make a strong cheap kit to eliminate the days of blown stock diffs than by all means ima gonna get-r-done.

and no worries on the quality guys. im a paid wleder and fabricator. i just want some pretty pictures and some helpful ideas on mounting set ups.

my kit will be only for na models sadly unless i get a donor car from someone lol, as my miata is a 91...

THANKS EVERYONE!!

I'm willing to put money on the fact that less than 1% of the members here have an 8.8 rear and 0% have fabbed up their own mount.

i was scared of that... why is it that miata guys (most of them) slam their miata and put on intake and exhaust? at most a turbo kit and boost only like 5psi lol... its no wonder pistons and rods are so pricey for a 1.6 or 1.8... sigh.

well offer still stands. i was hoping for a couple v8 guys on here to come through.

my miata will never see a v8 but it will however see a 2.3T from an svo, and big power and a blowthrough carb lol. so im kinda in need.

honestly the diff costs about 45-75 depending on the junkyard and it shouldnt cost more than 150 or 200 for the mounting kit. leaving only axles... which if i could i would make way cheaper too.. the pricing on this stuff is crazy.

That is completely untrue on this forum.
you're thinking of m.net or cr.net.

And a few hundred for a driveshaft.

Cheaperish, simpler, Plug and Play option is the 1.8l diffs for the Majority of the miataturbo folks.

Buffon, if you're going to come to the party, at least bring some beer, none of this boxed wine BS.

you guys done yet? carb 2.3t's make more power and changing a boost setting on race day means turning a carb screw and looking at my mc-1 wideband... not hours of tuning like i did before....
