Front Big Brake update:

I ended up using 05-14 Mustang (rear) rotors (11.8" OD) and the stock '90 Miata calipers. I had to drill the rotors for 4x100 and reduced the braking area width to match Miata pad size. The Miata caliper brackets had to be clearanced a bit for the bigger diameter. The caliper adapter brackets were super simple to make -the 1/2 aluminum thickness was perfect as-is!
Total cost of this mod was less than $100, including new brake lines.

K motor update:
Installed very expensive oil pan that I naturally had to spend hours grinding on to get to fit. (I guess DC5 oil pump is a little bigger?)

Spent pretty much an entire weekend making the silly FPR bracket.
