Subaru EJ251 in a Miata


Recommended Posts



The Transmission is not just plugged. It's converted properly to a rear wheel drive only trans.The front differential is removed

and the center diff housing is then welded to transfer all torque to the Miata rear wheels. This the same method that is used to driffed

Very interesting, and I'm sure it'll be a fun car. Yea, those transfer gears typically don't hold up well to being the sole output, but the light weight and relatively low power levels here will help. Might want to start budgeting to upgrade those.


Custom driveshaft, I assume?




Seems like a pretty niche market. Someone with the time and skill to assemble an engine, and notch the crossmember and framerail, but wants some bolt-on brackets?


Probably a great candidate for a BRZ transmission, or Bill's bellhousing to a Toyota RWD transmission.
