Yeah, lengthwise they are perfect fit, i had to remove a little bit of alloy to seat the grommets flush on top of the cover though.

Humor me with a pic rupe?

Can't seem to find a finished version...but it is finished since the link below, just needs paint IIRC.

Dev pics here though to give you an idea.

Wiring is progressing, im still trying to find accurate cop wiring. Miataturbo site directly conflicts with andy from adaptronic. Who do i believe? One lists cop pin wiring as ground,trigger,tach,12v+. The other reversed.
Need to find an internal reg. alternator and crank pulley bolt, woodruff key and bottom cam sprocket, on a roadtrip south in a couple of days so i will be taking every opportunity to hunt. Lets hope i don't need to go all the way to Dural (mx5mania).

Plug and play product that i could order then, there.
I was considering others but this one bolts straight on, uses original mx5 sensor and has quite enough resolution to do a better job than stock gear. Also it could get to me quick.

I just love finding the hard way to do things.

Nah, it's gone. Only the blower for the front screen.
Have to get busy with the fibreglass to connect it up to the screen ducts. My dash vents are all filled now too.

I'd be happy if i never saw another wire again.
Got my headlights/parkers etc all working, indicators, ignition circuit and other stuff.
Looking at doing it all over again with a Painless universal kit when i have more time. I can get it to work with some reliability but making it look neat is another matter entirely.
