Interesting option for those wanting a 6 speed gearbox

Yes they are a fair bit larger but my chassis had to be modified to clear the mx5 5speed clutch release arm. If you use a concentric slave cylinder it may not be a problem. 

Thanks for that,  mine is a Mazda sdv chassis and was wondering if it would fit

Couple of photos of the mx5 6spd vs 5spd. Just for reference. 6spd above 5spd.  

Dont have image of Rx8 box though.

Is it worth modifying the chassis to make it fit? Just a thought ;)

You have a good point. I have found someone who has done it in a westfield by modifying the passenger side footwell.

Too much work for me so will be either using a type 9 or another option which is in development ;-)
