  1. Camber adjustable top front wishbones, with sleeve nut and washer. No more removing the ball joint from the upright to make adjustments, just loosen the lock nut and set the camber perfectly to the exact setting you are looking for. These use the same BMW ball joint as the standard wishbones. To the best of my knowledge Westfield only ever made 5 sets of these and they are now discontinued. This was the very first set made. These are new, all bushes fitted but never fitted to the car. There some light storage marks, these are painted that her than powder coa

    SOLD - 2009 Westfield Mazda SDV

    After a great deal of deliberation I have come to the difficult decision to sell my Westfield as I believe that someone else should now have the enjoyment of driving her. I always swore that I would never sell, but after 12 years of ownership I'm finding that I'm now using it less and less and instead favouring my other cars. I am the first and only owner having built the car myself over a period of approximately 10months between May 2008 and February 2009. SVA having been passed first time in February 2009 and First Registration April 2009. The chassis was fabricated by Westfield

    Mazda MX5 1.6 cut and shortened sump

    Just removed from my SDV, as it has a slight weep that I've been unable to trace. I suspect it may be from one of the welds but I did notice that the sump plug washer also had split. The sump has been shortened by approx 1" and the bottom plate is 5mm thick aluminium so it's got some protection from Knicks and bangs. The oil pickup pipe has also been modified and will be included. I've now switch back to a standard sump hence now selling. Yours for £25 and I can post at cost if required, I think this will be about £16 due to the weight (6kg) or I can wrap if you want to send a
  5. I'm building a Mazda SDV at a very leisurely rate in the Surrey area. I've created this topic to cover all aspects of the build I might need advice on. First question is shock absorbers. I intend to use my Westie as primarily a road based car, with the possible the occasional track day. So my question is are the shock absorbers that Westfield will sell you the best value for money? I assume they OEM them, rather than build them themselves. Can you buy them cheaper elsewhere? Are there other alternatives?

    Track geometry settings

    Going for a geometry and corner weighting set up tomorrow on my Mazda sdv. Car is running 15s and will mainly be used on track. Does anyone have any suggestions of camber and toe settings to aim for. There is a lot of conflicting info out there Thanks
  7. Hi all, I thought now would be a good time to start a build thread, being as the remains of my old 379bhp Mk1 Focus RS went to its new owner to rebuild today: Then was replaced by this: A 1993 1.6 Eunos with mandatory broken drivers window mechanism, great oil pressure and no need to use one of those nasty catalytic converters. She runs and drives great and is a tidy car tbh, seems a shame to rip it apart The date for my kit was originally 14th of March but due to the fibreglass supplier switch it's been put back by a week. That's fine by me as before I collect the

    Frank's FW Mazda SDV build

    I built a MX5 SDV back in 2008/2009 that I unfortunately totaled in 2015. There was no question that it had to be rebuilt but this time with a FW body. I just like that body style better. I have already rebuilt it, the car is done, but I thought it'd be nice to make a build thread about it . Since we all like pictures, I'll add lots Here's the car I finished building in 2009
  9. Having a bit of a garage clearout I have the following MX5 parts for sale that will fit the Mazda SDV Pair of rear uprights, hubs and bolt on driveshafts for a 1.6 (non ABS) = £50 Pair of rear push-in driveshafts from a 1.8 = £25 Shortened and balanced propshaft to suit Mazda SDV's fitted with 1.8 diff - 700mm long (approx 605mm between gearbox oil seal and diff flange). = £100 (no offers) NOW SOLD Pair of 13" Weller, round hole steel wheels MX5 fitment (4x100) fitted with Avon cut Slicks 180/530 R13. These are IMO still useable, but showing signs of cracking on the tread. The overall widt
  10. Westfield Sport Turbo ST3 front anti-roll bar. This is the only Westfield ARB that fits the front track width of the Mazda SDV's other than their inboard ARB. Bought new from WF a couple of winters back, this set me back over £250. Although fitted to the car for that time it was only connected when sprinting the car and was disconnected again when on the road. This ARB should also work with SDV's using the FW front as the mounting blocks fit to the rear bolts of the upper wishbones. Asking £125, collection from Colchester CO6 or I can post for an additional £10. - NOW SOLD

    Turbocharging the mazdafield

    I was always torn between fitting throttle bodies, a supercharger or a turbo to the Westfield. The latter are common modifications to the MX5, but the former perhaps more suited to a Westfield. So, I went down the throttle bodies route over the winter (along with an engine rebuild) and netted myself 165-170bhp, depending on which dyno you use. However, once I'd gotten an aftermarket ECU as part of the winter build, I'd gotten it into my head that this immediately makes any further changes a lot easier. I then persuaded myself that it's ok to try forced induction as I can simply put the thr
  12. Moulded dash for a Mazda SDV to use the MX5 light cluster. Brand new and unused. Dorset
  13. I love this car, but after 4 trips to Le Mans, and one to Tuscany, I know I need more luggage space. I thought of adding a tow ball, but I'm looking for a Triumph Stag now. This car has never been on a Track, and has done an average of 3000 per year since IVA. The engine seems bullet proof, and the gearbox is a joy (Vastly better than Ford). Dark Green body, Black fittings, unmarked Team Dynamics Pro-Race gloss black 7J wheels with Toyo 195/50 R15 tyres fitted in 2011, Thatcham II Alarm, 2 sets of keys, 2 12v sockets for Sat Nav. or wine cooler (!) etc., black Tonneau, green hood and sidesc
  14. Ever since selling my Narrow project car last year, this has been taking up room and gathering dust in the back of the garage so finally it's time for it to go. This is it's brief history and spec. The engine is ex Andy Burge who campaigned it in the Ma5da racing series, carrying him to one win and a second place in the 2009 season. It reportedly made 128bhp at the wheels when on the rolling road in March 2008 (see original ebay advert below) although I haven't proved that figure and I would suggest it would actually be more realistic if measured as a flywheel figure. His car was unfortun

    Mazda SDV - fuel guage

    Just stuck 10 litres of fuel in my Mazda SDV expecting to see some movement on the guage needle and nuffin Currently using std Mazda instrumant pod with Westfield supplied and modded (as per build manual) sender. Any ideas? thought I'd seen a forum thread on this somewhere, but could not locate. IVA in 4 days - does the guage need to work? Cant find any reference to it in the IVA notes. Cheers
  17. I bought two packs when building thinking a box per side. It turns out a box covers both sides so I've a box left over. Brand new never out of the box. Very easy to fit to give a nice firm new bushing to improve the handling at the rear (the only place that uses a Mazda bush rather than the Westfield part) Fits upper, outer, rear wishbone/upright. P/n PFR36-112 £15
  18. Through the years Westfield's have used a number of different types and designs for their rear axle and suspension. whilst there are some variations with different applications and years, for Car engined vehicles these can be most typically be categorised into 4 different types. Escort Live axle The Live axle was used in the Pre-Lit, Narrow Body (SE) and Wide Body (SEW) cars. It uses a modified Ford Escort Mk1 or Mk2 (English) axle. Independent Axle (Westfield/Escort Diff) This was first used in the Narrow Body (SEI) and the early Wide Body (SEIW) cars. The differentia

    MX5 SDV Power Upgrade Project

    I have now had the car for 12 months, and have spent some time exploring avenues to increase the power on my car. I looked at Supercharging using an Eaton M45, as this is quite a common MX5 engine upgrade. The normal position for the M45 is on the hotside next to the head. Unfortunately fitting it on the Westfield in this position would mean a fairly large cut out in the bonnet and I did not want to do that. I think a Rotrex type charger would probably fit lower down where the power steering pump is normally housed, but they are eye wateringly expensive, so I ruled this out I also cons

  22. Due to a change of plans I'm putting this up for sale It's a rare 3.6 ratio type-2 Torsen Torque biasing diff. Please ignore the fact it has 3.9 written on the carrier, i've counted to teeth on the crown wheel and pinion and it's definitely 3.6 Most MX5's came with either a 4.3 or 4.1 ratio diff, the 3.6 was only found on the 6-speed cars. Comparing with a 4.3 ratio this will give you an engine speed of approx 3100rpm in 5th gear at 70mph rather than 3600rpm. First gear will also be longer increasing from approx 30mph to 37mph @ 6200rpm. 60mph in second gear would now be possible. Fur

    Shortened Mazda MX5 gear lever

    Approx 15-20mm shorter than a standard gear lever. I had this modified to give a bit better clearance to the dashboard but in the end i opted not to use it. The material was all removed from the centre of the lever where it is at it's largest diameter and then-welded. £12 and happy to post to you at cost

    Electric Mirrors Upgrade - Part 3

    A bit of fresh air was needed today, so I used some fine cutting compound, followed by Autoglym SRP and finally some wax. Three coats of each left me with this Then I cleaned the mirror glass and applied some Rainex. I also cleaned the plastic glass surround with some trim detailer And finally I re-assembled the mirror The windscreen pillars need a small amount of modifying. I drilled out the fixing holes to enlarge the diameter of them. This allows the mirror to be rotated slightly to make it more vertical as without this it points a little bit too much skywards.
