This adaptor plate will allow you to fit a 2004-2008 Mazda RX8 5 or 6 speed gearbox behind your Zetec, Pinto, 2,3 Galaxy, Crossflow or BDA Engine.

The plate is laser cut to ensure accuracy and repeatability so all adaptor plates are manufactured and fit the same.

The top two countersunk holes are used to align the centre line of the adaptor plate to the centre line of the crankshaft. The plate is supplied with the two countersunk M10 screws for this. There are 2 dowels welded into the adaptor plate that then line the gearbox to the crank centreline that are tapped to accept fixings.

Your gearbox will need notching slightly to clear the nose of the starter you are using unless it is a lightweight/hi torque type unit with no nose.

The gearbox can be used with the standard external slave cylinder, one of our cable clutch conversion kits or one of our hydraulic concentric release kits.

With this adaptor plate you can run the standard zetec clutch and flywheel on a Zetec but the preferred setup is one of the following:

  • 1800 Zetec flywheel drilled for pinto clutch
  • Steel lightweight manufacture flywheel with pinto clutch.
  • One of our 1.4Kw starters

Pinto engines use standard flywheels and starters and run a type 9 clutch.

The 2.3 Galaxy engine uses 1800 CVH Sierra flywheel and one of our 1.4Kw bottom solenoid starters. Bottom solenoid is used mostly in Unlimited bangers to clear the downpipe.

Cable clutch conversion kit for this setup is: 5 Speed or 6 Speed
