MX5 VVT with 6 speed

Post by Bigred » Sun Nov 07, 2010 7:28 pm

I saw one of these listed on TM the other day.
power output was listed as 113kw

Mark, you guys must be the experts on mx5 into 7's, any insights you can share?
Typically, how tall are they? sump mods required?
How wide? Can standard ecu be used?

Cheers
Cliff

Cliff I can tell you that the 6 speed box is a lot wider than the 5 speed box by quite a bit and would not fit in your Tui7 with out some major tunnel mods the rest ill leave to Mark.
Why walk when you can accelerate through life in a 7..... :lol:

At $3000 you could do a lot better...around a grand will get you a SR20DE and box with loom etc.. gives you another $2000 for beer.....

No harm going with an mx5 setup, but that does sound like a bit much. Unless it's rebuilt or something. I've not set eyes on the six speed, but the five speed is meant to be very smooth.

$3000 is quite cheap for an 1800 vvt with 6speed they usually ask 1500 to 3000 just for the 6 speed box but you will find that if you intend to take it to the track a 5 speed box will do alot better
