ps, that is the strong box. the R type/type 3 variety. should last pretty well!
I've yet to attain one and see for myself, but that is NOT what I wanted to read. Looks like the 929 shaft is shorter because the bell is shorter/shallower. Ugh.the input shaft on the manual gearbox is shorter than the rx7 one
That last box, same type as my 929 FE gbox (except for the shifter...). That bell is weird tho, doesn't look like a MA one at all. I have an MA Cosmo sitting on my back lawn and I'm 95% sure its not an MA bell - starter is on wrong side. Plus, I have only seen smooth bells on MA's.neither of the two boxs pictured fit the fe/f2 engines. one is for b6/bp the other for ma.
if you have the last box, you have the weaker type2 box with an ma bell. you can get a bell for that from pretty much any ordinary truck from about 86 - 93 or so, maybe outside that range. excluding any 2.6 trucks.
once again, the last box is from an NA mx5 with a B6 engine, its not for an MA at all. the second to last box IS for an MA as found in the early b series. at least, thats what he tells me the motor is. certainly not F or B anyway.That last box, same type as my 929 FE gbox (except for the shifter...).

torque is a function of displacement and flow. you are pretty much stuck with 100nm per litre no matter who you are. if you are a crappy 8 valve mazda design, you might end up with 90nm per litre, and if you are an s2000 you might end up with 115nm per litre. but torque is pretty much a displacement thing. as for power, the fe 8 valve with injection (is that what you have/had?) made about 92ps anyway. besides, 75ps/ litre is a bare minimum really, there are reasons why i binned my sohc motor (literally. tried to sell it, but didnt sell in time, and while i was on the plane here, it got dumped with a decent box on it too) in favour of the dohc engine, and theres a reason that this guy is dumping the MA for a 1.6 litre twincam. the small engine makes more powerDon't underestimate the MA's, they are [fizzle]ing torquey and in Japan came with multipoint injection making over 100ps.
