Got my throttle body and TPS.

Got some weld on Injector bosses coming from Australia too and a series 5 to series 6 adapter for the inlet manifold coming from new Zealand.

For the cost of the adapter it just easier and quicker than me having to make one. 225 nz dollars, about 100 quid

The final piece to the intake puzzle. All the way from New Zealand.

This adapter allows you to go from a series 5 lower inlet manifold to use a series 6 upper inlet manifold

IT cost 200Nz dollars plus another £30 import tax.

IT has O rings to give a perfect reusable seal too

They also make a series 4 to series 6 adapter as the stud patterns on the series 4 lower intake are slightly different to the series 5.

Finally got some steel delivered so I can make the engine mounts.
Having to pull the engine further forwards for clearence with this adapter which is fine as this will bring the gear knob prety much into the stock mx5 locationno cutting needed apart from a little trim on part of the subframe

So things have ground to a halt as iv just got my house sold and have just had an offer accepted on my new much bigger one! With a garage that will fit a car in much better. Allow me to work on things easier it all goes through smoothly and they want it all completed by 28th February

Just ordered an rx8 steering rack so I can at least tow the car up there rather than pay for a transporter etc i will get it bolted in so steering works.

I Have been looking at the mx5 subframe and I think I should have just used that as the mounting points lend them selves to support the engine mounts on my engine

I'm going to get it cleaned up and painted and make a decision as it's not really hard to swap them back over at this point as I haven't fabbed mounts as of yet

I was looking at mounting the MX5 PAS in the space of the AC Compressor on the RX8 enigne.

Also

I know that GarageReg (Colum) has developed a Hydraulic PAS kit for the 13B-REW. Might be worth dropping him a message. He posted an instagram story last year showing the kit and "stay tuned"
