Why is it easier to do with the MX5 rack. I thought you had to cut the cross member with the MX5 rack?

Cos you have to do this to fit a subi rack, insted of a couple of small notches. Well this is my take on it all anway, im not saying im right, just what seems to be right.

Yeah I will continue my research including on HybridZed since I am not doing this mod for another 4-5 months. Diff mount first.

the fellow here, i believe hes registered on this forum RBZ_260?

believe it was slot and reinforce the engine stand/pedestal, and heat and bash some clearance on pass side, also i think he said a custom drivers side rack mount bush. Also rotating one half of the rack helps with lines location etc.

hope he chimes in here,

nato

im here.

yeah wha t nato said pretty much. i wasn a fan of cutting chuncks out of the cross member or drilling massive holes.

bit lazy to post a pic but here is a ling from the other forum

http://www.thezgarag...topic.php?t=601

all i did is made few dents using oxy set and big hammer. rotated the power head 180deg and new pipes bent up. sloted the rhs engine bracket and reinforced fromt the inside. just under 3 turns from lock to lock.

though looking at he mx5 looks bit easier. but mazda parts a xpensive. i got my rebuild subi for $180 with the mods to the pipes.
