Default WTB: 1.8 valvecover & coil pack bracket

From what i understand the DSM coils i'm running now (in an awkwardly hacked-up DSM bracket) should bolt right onto a miata bracket. Which will in turn bolt right onto a miata valvecover. Which will in turn bolt onto my fwd BPC8 motor (woo!).

Neither part needs to be fancy looking, but corrosion-free would be nice.

Thanks!

VVT valve cover does not fit properly on earlier 1.8's.

I've got a very ugly looking (but intact) valve cover off a '99. Might even have a coil mount bracket. PM if interested.

I have a coilpack (including bracket) off a 2000 that I can send you. $30 shipped if you want it. I can send you a pic after work if you want.
