The mod is essentially putting the Miata gears into the RX7 transmission housings so the rear housing and shift linkages are still all RX7. Though technically you could swap some Miata stuff over so you could run a Miata short shifter if you wanted. They're much cheaper for some reason. It sounds straightforward but it's a pretty complicated task. You have to completely disassemble the transmission to get to remove the input shaft. I posted a how-to on here a while back detailing the process per the FSM.
