I have just purchased my first GT from the new opelgt.com sight. The add is still up if you´d like to see it. I´m having it shipped down from Washington and should have it here some time today, hence my lack of sleeping. I´ve seen the rotory GT´s but no posts about putting a 1.6L Mazda Miata engine in an Opel. My Miata was hit in the front wheel which twisted the frame a little and bent the steering rack. What I´m left with is a very nice donor car. The shifter on the Miata´s transmission is all the way to the rear which may be a problem, so I´m looking for a similar one that´s further forward. The odds that the Getrag will bolt up without a custom bell housing and new input shaft are probably not to good. Has anyone tried to put an independant rear end in a GT or would it be too much work for a small gain in handeling?
