Yep you can, when you order you just sent a pic of your stock dials, and they will send you the correct faces. Also you asked in my build thread where I got my dials. From eBay as well... Except mine were from 'MoMan'
If there isn't a set up ATM, just wait a couple of weeks and they will pop up.

Same goes for that seller to, sent them a pic and they sort out the MPH, KPh, the rpm/redline etc.

Hey man, your car looks great! (Mines the same colour - champaigne gold)
I've been thinking about the 5stud conversion myself.. What parts do you need do do it?. And is it straight forward? Cheers, Raf

kool man you'll have to come out to our next meeting so we have 2 gold mazdas,

the 5 Stud conversion was so to say quite easy just time consuming,

you'll need the front and rear hubs off an sp20 and new brake rotors and either get a lock nut set for the extra stud or buy a new set of wheel nuts,(5 stud ones lol) " FamiliaGTX" has a full set of hubs, calipers and rotors for sale at a good price,
but yea it's pretty straight forward, just unbolt and re-bolt up if you need any addvice or a hand just give us a bell man

you can put the sp20 rear lower control arms on if you want( there shorter ) but just a heep of extra work for (what i would call lesser gain) getting the bottem of the wheel inside the car body, mine has poke and then i just x-drilled my top hub bolt holl on the rear shock to allow me to put negitive camber on the rear wheels so the top of the tyre fits in the guardif your car is lowered

what wheels you planing on running?

just for everyone to get an idea of the camber/poke the car has
i will take more photos tomorrow and put them up displaying it a bit better but you get the idea

currently running -3deg camber


and as matt said the 1.8 lower control arms about 1" loger then the sp20 ones and just not worth the effor to drop the rear X-member to change them
