it's going to be really hard to do it for that price....

Call 678...523...7252 and see if you can't source an Rx7 assembly from them. You should be able to get the complete rear RX7 assembly for under $200.

Then you'd just need the miata bushings ($10), pinon housing ($???), gear ring ($???), & half shafts ($5-100).

All the RX7 parts are way cheaper than the Miata parts. $800 for a miata torsen assembly vs. $300-400 for an RX7 clutch-type assembly.
