      yeah, couldn't justify buying another standard mx5 engine for 4k, would rather do the conversion, and if i fuck one of these its only a grand

          No height issues? I know they poke out the bonnet of the early mx5s?

            The NDs are a fair bit bigger than NA/NB. I lined up next to one a little while ago and was looking at the bottom of the window glass.

                    Fair enough. They really do feel like they are bigger than the NA on the road.

                    Looking at the engine placement it sits a lot lower and further back than the NA engine bay would allow, so thats probably why it fits easily enough.

                      Iíve got a set of S001ís and some Garageline spacers for one of these for PF prices if anyone wants them

                      Took the spacers off as I put fatter tyres on mine and they rub, and I donít want to roll the guards

                          Had to buy a under drive pulley to get a little more clearance, I'm also going turbo aswell now, Will be a big single, not sure if there will be room in the front.
                          if not i'll be able to do a rear mount setup..
