We’ve added a ton of bits to Miata to make it fast, and the only thing we’ve really added for safety on the track has been our roll cage. So today we are looking at aftermarket seats and harnesses. Yes, they look cool BUT does it make sense to add them to your car, should you even be rocking a sweet OMP seat and OMP harnesses? And if so how do you install them? Let’s do this!
We have a new channel!
Money Pit is where you get to learn about cars as we work on them. Each ep we’ll breakdown how each component works and then we’ll upgrade it. Join us in our journey to build cool cars, learn about them, and drive the crap out of them!

  • Often I think about upgrading my seats. Or at least just the driver’s seat. But the issue I have is that my rear seats are still used by my children. And I feel the harness would hinder the back seats area.

  • The only reason I am interested in a fixed seat is because I swear my seat adjusts itself gradually into a laid back position that I do not like. It would also help reduce weight a bit, maybe get me a little lower which means I could see traffic lights a bit better, and of course the obvious benefits that come from a properly sized seat.

  • I used to run a 96 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham HARD AS F daily. I was always having to hold myself in the driver seat. My right hand slid in between the two front seats and firmly gripping the driver seat frame. I crushed the left door panel doin a hard right handed one day so the switchboard for the windows and seats would always fall in... Good times :)

  • I would’ve talked about wiring that goes through seats first. Sometimes even with manual seats you have wiring that goes through the seats sometime for safety features in this case speakers in the seats. A lot of cars won’t even start if the seat isn’t plugged in. Even on t fox body mustang the power lumbar is all it has. But if you disconnect it to put seats in that lumbar is actually connected to the fuel pump relay. Which means if the seats not plugged in then the car ant starting.
