Default turbo miata cts rear end

Hey guys ive been doing research on the rack and pinion swaps 3.6 being the best gearing but i kno this can get pricey wouldn't it be better just to swap in the fm rear in kit and get a custom driveshaft to mate it to the 6speed ,being more durable

I'll tell you what, though. I'll throw you a bone.


So what you want to do here is... spend a couple grand for a CTS-V rear end, and then attach it to the same weakest link in your driveline you had to start with.


Sound about right?

Let's call it what it really is - the V8Roadsters diff kit. And you can get it from V8R with a driveshaft, no need for custom.

/useful info

carry on

Are you thinking that installing your rear end will be drastically different depending on your motor of choice?
