    The only thing that has been modified so far is one frame crossmember. I'm going to put a curved piece in its place. The F20C is a bit taller than the miata motor the car is designed for, but it should fit just fine.

    Im getting a different dry sump system that doesn't require as much fabrication. The new pan will bolt up to the bellhousing just like the stocker.
