Nice! I was looking around for vids of Enthuza exhausts, but it would be much better if I can just hear your car in person at a meet or drive sometime. Sounds pretty sweet to me :)

Little update,

Ive taken out my hawk hps pads and will be replacing them with carbotech's xp10's front and xp8's rear with a set of braided lines form 949 racing. Im currently looking for an rx7 clutch type diff so throw into my car in place of my torsen. My tires are becoming closer and closer to bald everyday so im also pricing a set of nitto nt01's. I snaged a new turbo off e-bay and will be throwing that in as well in place of blown seals in my current one. Ive got a long weekend ahead of me :D

I could have snagged an rx7 one for 130, but i opted not too because it was in vacavill. If your talking about the torsen i herd back once then nothing. If you come across an rx7 one let me know and i may sell you my torsen. Depending on price of the rex7 of course.

so for those of you that dont know i blew my tranny, 3rd gear actually. Shifted fast while showing my little sister the difference a turbo makes the car feel. Ka booom and its gone... so tonight i had a friend come over and we pulled the tranny in about an hour and ten min.

Dirty bell housing..
Image
and the 5 speed in all its glory
Image
You cant really see it in this picture but the bottom half of the DP is off and the mani is begining to be removed, ill finish off taking the turbo off tomorrow and hopefully swap the turbo out for its replacement or at least take it apart and make sure everything is all good. I may get the tires mounted but really need to focus on finding a 6-speed for my car right now.

Planet miata's list price is 750+ shipping so im looking at around 850 ish and dont plan on spending much if any more than that. If anyone has one laying around that they dont need or know's someone with one please let me know.
Thanks

Got the 6 speed in, managed to snap a bolt in there :(

The reverse lights still need a bit of love, for some reason i got them to be on when in nutral but when in reverse they are off. And dont think i didnt reverse the wires to see if that would work either :p

The shift pattern feels just fine to me and so far everything with the tranny is good.

As for the turbo, im still burning oil and will be looking for a leakdown tester to because i overlooked the turbo and everything looks just fine in there so maybe i have a leaking valve? Anyone have a leakdown tester i can barrow so i dont have to spend 50 bucks from harbor freight...

I don't know if the 6-speeds are the same way, but the 5-speeds have two switches on the transmission - one for the reverse lights, and one that closes in neutral for the computer and for cruise control. Apparently the plugs can be interchanged, and then you get what you've got going on, which is reverse lights on in neutral. May want to check that out.
