I did not see a "drivetrain" section. I found a donor car to upgrade from my 1.6 diff to the 1.8 diff. The donor car is automatic. Will I be able to use the driveshaft from the auto car in my 5 speed car? Everything I have read about the swap does not say whether or not that would be a problem.

I think there is a slight length difference but I believe you can still use it. To be safe I would take some measurements.
I know this, when swapping a Miata from auto to 5 speed it is possible to use the auto driveshaft so it would seem to me that your scenario would be much the same.
If the donor car is an auto the diff is an open unit...but I am sure you know that. Still better then a 1.6 diff for abusing. ;)

BTW, my son tells me he met you in a parking lot and was attempting to "sell" you Miata parts. :D He's a nut. He always approaches anyone with a Miata (as he drives one too) and says..."if you need parts call my dad, hes got all kinds of crap!"
