Flyin' Miata ND/Fiat dual hood lift kit

What's included.
Flyin' Miata ND/Fiat dual hood lift kit
The perfect hood lift?

Exclusive to Flyin' Miata

Availability: On backorder
You can place an order now and we'll reserve it for you. We are expecting the parts around July 15th, 2020.



Built for us by the guys at IL Motorsports, this dual hood lift kit will open the hood further than stock, gives you more room to work and has the perfect balance of assistance. Because there are two hydraulic lifts, the hood doesn't twist and there's no bending when closed. As seen in our V8 conversions.

Bolt-on installation. Fits ND Miatas and Fiat 124 Spider. These will fit all North American NDs and Fiat 124s, but won't fit cars with hood lifter / pedestrian safety systems.

Works, tips inside body of review.
Works. Where to put Safety Clip isn't in instructions. While it's sort of a no brainer, the holes are not easy to see for some of us. A hint at least would be good. See tip by SATXBASSPLAYER My tip: Put tape (I used blue painter's) over the holes in the body under where the safety clips go. That's what I did after I fished it out the first time, with a magnet tool. Also, make sure they go in correctly, they can miss the second hole.

Excellent, high-quality upgrade. Recommended!
Easy to install and works very smoothly. So much cleaner looking now and no propping of the hood anymore. An extremely well-made set.

Looks and works like it should be a factory feature.
Quality accessory. Fit was excellent. Easy to install.

Good product. Easy to install. Instructions need improvement.
Good product and installs relatively quickly and easily. Sketchy instructions turned a 15-minute job into a 45-minute one.

* In order to ensure that the bonnet doesn't shift, I suggest removing 1 bolt at a time at Step 1/2, pushing the bolt through the hoodlifter adapter, and hand-tightening the bolt before removing the second bolt.
* At Step 3/4 you will need a crescent wrench to tighten the bolt underneath the ball - a socket won't work here.
* The easiest - but most time consuming - task is Step 5: inserting the safety springs into the virtually invisible holes in the adapter receptacles. I'd suggest daubing a bit of whiteout, nail polish, or paint near the holes to improve visibility.

Nice kit with fairly easy installation. Makes working under the hood of my 124 Spider Much easier.

Good struts - installation not the easiest
I received these struts and was excited to get them mounted. For some reason, my struts were about an inch and a half too long, so I had to fashion a way to compress them to get them to align (I used a ratchet strap carefully wrapped around each strut). Otherwise, I am happy with the product.

Excellent Hood Lift Kit
This is a nice improvement to my 2019 ND2. It lifts and supports the hood firmly on both sides. I had a kit from another vendor for an NB that had to be hacked to work and supplied only one lift cylinder. but it does looking

This kit look just like real factory equipment. Easy to install using factory bolls.

Highly recommend
Excellent to make give the car a more high end feel and opens for unobstructed access. Sausage fingers don't make the strut retaining clips so easy to insert, but the complete job takes only minutes!

Nice mod
Nice Mod, easy install, quality materials
Review by Panthershark / (Posted on 3/10/2018)
Absolute best option on the market
Simple install. Quality materials. This kit really is as good as the reviews say. Working under the hood now is so much easier, even for little things like quickly adjusting your front dampeners.

Get this product as it truly improves your car, unless you are never under the hood... but then you probably wouldn't be on this website.

Great product. Instructions, not so much.
5 stars for quality, subtracted a star for bad instructions, in fact the instructions sent to me were for installation on NAB, not ND as they should have been. Regardless, pulled the (also substandard) instructions from this website and was able to install in 20 minutes. Nice mod. Recommended.
Review by Jeff C. / (Posted on 12/23/2017)
Better lift height, easier access, great closure.
Easy installation. The hood sits higher after this installation and, without the prop-rod, it is so much easier to access the engine bay. On top of that, closure is much better. No slam, just a good heavy clunk.
Review by Yar Mosnar / (Posted on 11/27/2017)
Good part - bad instructions
The struts lift the hood well. No prop rod is pretty great! This is a really nice mod.

My only issue with the kit is installation. I'd recommend not using the torque specs in the instructions - Just make sure they're good and tight. I used the minimum spec and broke all 4 hinge bolts. Screw extraction and some replacement bolts, and I'm good as new.. but huge pain on what should have been an easy job.

Note from Flyin' Miata: Thanks for the feedback on the instructions, we'll look into that.

A wonderful product that Mazda should have made stock on every Miata! So much nicer to work under the hood or just gaze at the engine without a prop-rod in the way.

Super easy install, shocks have great tension. The space under the hood, makes life so much easier! A must have!
