Well the Supercharger and 6 speed box (I did the box while it was still NA) both made excellent impacts on the car but also hefty impacts on my bank balance :-/

I'd say the seats or steering wheel... odly enough, both made the driving experience of the car so much more exciting, you felt so much more control and feel.

Cave'd in and decided after 4 rag tops its about time I tried a hard top, and to my luck found one in the right colour on good ol' wightbay


Its a genuine Mazda one, even have the recipt from Northwood for £1150!

Its quite surprising how it firms everything up once fitted, actually looking forward to some rain so I can give it the true test!!





Also bought some Motorsport engine mounts, mine are pretty tiered being 20+ years old and these 40% stiffer ones should firm everything up nicely without to much NVH.

They are pretty boring looking things but the box they came in is rather sexual so here's a photo!

Got the Motorsport mounts on today, reasonably easy job.

It's proved to be a very worth while £65 spent, the front end of the car feels much tighter on turn-in, and gear change is much sweeter too, which was the main drive to do this so I'm very happy indeed!

Just Awaiting the charge cooler to arrive then to try and have it up and running for brands hatch!

Was this a description of your car up to date? If so, the Oil Cooler mounting photos shows your car as a LNC example. Although it was quoted so it may of been someone else's. Just wondering?
