You can use your mx6 hubs, but then you need to use mx6 front struts too. And to make the mx6 strut fit in a 323, you need to use the 323 front strut top, with the centre hole drilled out a bit. You can also get the rear tapered spring from a GD, and cut a few coils from the top of it. This way, it seats perfectly into the bottom of the front mx6 strut and the 323 strut top. But by using mx6 hubs your it will be 5 stud, and you cant use mx6 hubs in the rear. You need to use 5 stud hubs from a BH/BHA V6 Astina, not sure if you guys even have them in Canada.
So are you saying that an Mx6 LX has a completely different trans with different mounting and motor mounts than a GT Mx6 ?? I don't believe that !H box is stronger, and non-GT cars had g-series boxes.
Its not hard, there is only 4-5 wires on the F2T ecu that need to be connected to make the car run. 10 mins with a wiring diagram and a test light you should be able to figure it out.wow. do you ever ran that car on the track. i have driven mx6 with those engine and they move. do you have more info on how to swap the harness. a list of what is need it. this will defenaly be one of my future projects
You must be joking right?So are you saying that an Mx6 LX has a completely different trans with different mounting and motor mounts than a GT Mx6 ?? I don't believe that !
Depending on the model, yes they can sometimes have a g-box stock. But its no good to you as it has a bell housing to suit a B-series engine.Can you elaborate a bit, is a G box the stock trans that comes on a 323 ?
If it helps the 99+ protege (familia) uses struts that fit the G chassis spindles and have the smaller diameter strut rod to fit the 323/1st gen proto upper strut mount.
the early ones also have a 4 lug pattern and use the regular GD/GE splines in the hub-------Early ones??? are you describing the base model 3rd gen protege???
If you drill the 4 lug patern in to the rotors you can use larger rotors than the 3rd gen proto comes stock with (9.5" I believe) and upgrade to 10.2" stock mx6/probe rotors, 11.1" 98+ 626 V6 rotors and the later mazda 6 11.8" and Mazdaspeed 6 12.6" front brakes.
Since the 3G protege spindle is the same as the mx6/probe and 626 all the calipers listed above bolt right on---what year mx6/probe/626 are the same as 3rd gen pro?
-----Early ones??? are you describing the base model 3rd gen protege???
See above, 93-97 GE chassis cars used the same spindle as all third gen Proteges (the spindles were the same regardless, only the hubs and brake components changed) 98 and later 626's with the 4 banger used the same hubs and brakes but with drum rears the V6 626's came with larger brakes but still had the same spindle.what year mx6/probe/626 are the same as 3rd gen pro?
The old bump steer problem because of the steering pivot points not being parallel with the suspension, which inturn makes it toe in and out with bumps.I have my 323 F2T all done and running. Ive taken it to the track but there are serious handling problems. She's a handful to hang onto !
I think i found the problem though. I'm using the full 5 bolt MX6 struts and hubs and i now see that the wheels actually turn out (left and right) when you hit a bump. Seems the steering rods from the rack arn't parallel with the lower A arm. The steering arm is higher than on the 4bolt 323 knuckle.
Jesiotrot, have do you have this problem ? How does your handle.
Im going to have to cut the steering arm and weld it lower.
