    Thanks for sharing Bud, thatís an interesting article. That would be a great upgrade for my S1, but I guess Iíd run in to the same problem with fitting it in the already tight S1 chassis. Enjoy building your new Seven..

    Looking at both the Miata 5 and 6 speed transmissions it appears to me the tail shaft housing is the only Miata NC part and it has been modified at least in the removal of the mounting points for the PPF (Power Plant Frame which all generations of Miatas have). The next section forward is from the NB while the front case and bell housing are bespoke to Caterham.

    I was able to fit the NB transmission into my 2005 SV with some trimming of the front case and machining of the tailshaft housing. The first picture shows left to right, stock tail shaft housing, the finished housing and the sacrificial housing I used for test fitting.

    This is the rear transmission mount fabricated by a machinist friend who machined the final version.

    The new mount uses the Caterham rubber mount. The shift lever came through the center of the hole in the center console.

    Since this thread has taken a bit of tangent, I'll go ahead and summarize the ad, for those that clicked through to the last page:

    We have a new 2019 Caterham 310S SV roller (complete car without powertrain installed), in Ballistic Orange on the way. It is available, and should be arriving to our facility in early January. Nominally, the 310 is about 152HP - building upon the 280 1.6L Sigma platform with a more aggressive cam profile for better dynamic performance at higher RPM.

    Here are the particulars:

    • 310 S package (full weather equipment, road suspension, polished exhaust, carpeted interior, heater, etc)
    • SV Chassis
    • 15" Orcus Silver wheels w/Avon ZZS
    • Momo QR wheel
    • Aero fuel filler - black
    • Spare wheel tire/carrier
    • Ballistic Orange
    • Painted "7" grill in Ballistic Orange
    • Triple black stripe and lettering
    • 1.6L engine w/5sp gearbox


    We can also arrange to have the powertrain installed by on of our approved installers.

    Cheers,

    Hi Bruce: What is a ballpark price for a turnkey version of this (you supply the 310 version of the 280 Sigma 1.6 engine, and have your supplier install it and you do all of the other assembly and fettling, with no upgrades or improvements on the above spec)?
    Thx,
    Mike M.

    Hi Mike - totally turn-key, about $43.5K, ready to rumble.

    Thats a really good price compared with say 4-5 years back when the currency would have had it a third higher. People are forgetting that Brexit was effectively a 30% off sale for Caterhams to be sold in the US.

    However, Mike would not be happy with a 310 - he deserves more power - at least 50hp+ more. With his experience he would be bored unless at a 420R or above.

    I DO deserve more power Croc, ask anyone who has raced with me!

    And I agree that the price for this 310 SV is a deal. I recall when you paid that much for a Caterham kit, that you then had to assemble AND then had to add the cost of the engine and transmission on top of that $.

    Mike, I was thinking more along the lines of antilock brakes...for those ĎCrocí moments in life!

    Shane: You must be referring to the massive 4 wheel, flat spotting lock-up I applied, to the accompaniment of clouds of blinding, billowing tire smoke, in an effort not to be mowed down by Croc's careening Mustang behemoth right in front of me at the '18 NJMP event? I was so terrified I think I even put the car in reverse and tried to back up!
