This project looks like it will be fun to watch. Can I assume this has become a sort of build thread?

I've seen the ppf kept in a variety of trans/diff installs- it's all about using existing bosses on the trans diff to build a structure, then doing the same on the ppf, getting everything in position and tacking the two adjacent structures together. Couple of examples attached.

The FD PPF is entirely different from the Miata PPF. You would have to build your own. The FD PPF is also on the left side of the car, where the Miata PPF is on the right side, so you would never be able to fit an exhaust between the FD PPF and the floor on a Miata.

my point being it does not matter what is what- it can be adapted as needed

finally more updates. ive chosen and purchased my engine. i went with a 2002 kia sportage FE3N. i scored it off craigslist for $100 for the engine, head, covers, intake and exhaust manifolds, and clutch with flywheel. unknown mileage and the guy said it had no compression. first thing was to do a leakage test. all the valves do not seat due to deposits but over all the head looked clean inside. i got the motor pulled apart and the bearings, crank, rods, cams, lifters look almost brand new less some "score like" discoloration in cyl 3 that is so light that you cant feel it with a razor blade and some very light scuffing on the piston skirts.

everything gets transported in the racecar



so shiny

So is this getting any internal work? Any head work?
Also, you better get new rings before slapping it back together, I'll kill you if you re-use these.

im having everything gone through. new timing belt/water pump, bearings, rings, gasket match the head ports, probably cc and polish the combustion chambers and unshroud the valves. no one makes forged pistons so i think im just gonna try to get these coated.

Cool beans.
I don't see the need to coat these if you'll be running on e85 though.
Unless you plan to stay on 91 ****.

This thread is relevant to my interests. I have a 1973 triumph gt6 and will be following your build.

Cant wait to see how you tackle the frame work, take a ton of pics so I can copy you please.

It would be nice to have a trans that you know you could beat the crap out of it all down long and not worry. I still baby my six speed.
FWIW, if the TKO500/600 fits that adapter the Tremec 3550 or standard T5 should also. Where you'll run into an issue is the input shafts, but trans are readily available, can be super cheap, take more abuse than a BP could issue (even with me driving it) and have 3 different ratios. I've got 5 of them in my shed and have been lusting for someone to make an adapter plate.........

There's no doubt it would be easier to do a miata, and it would probably handle the power better, corner better, brake better, etc. But think about the steeze of this badass triumph. In for triumph success.

took advantage of the 1/2 price at pick n pull. picked up an N/A RX7 lsd. from what im reading it should be a clutch type with 4.30 gearing

since im going to have to custom make a drive shaft anyways is there any advantage to swapping out the pinion housings for the miata one?


the pinion housing sticks out a little bit...
