3 mounts welded on. Snapped one bending it to suit pipe diameter d'oh!

10 mm out mount to mount, I'll get that on the rubber mounts

Did you use the rx8 subframe with mx5 suspension arms? Did it all just bolt together easy

Rx8 front subframe.
Mx5 arms and rx8 arms are the same. Rx8 hubs are different. If you want to retain rx8 dsc/abs you'll need to use rx8 hubs
