This past spring I picked up a 94 that was pretty cheap. It was smoking some, and had been in a front end accident, but overall it ran and its body was straight with no rocker rust. It had all the options except for ABS, so I figured I could make a decent DD miata to replace my 92 B&T with 335k miles.
I have been lusting over 93 LE's since I first got into miata's years ago. The black and red color combo just touches me in all the right places. One of the things I have been looking for has either been a red interior for sale, or a cheap *** 93 LE to buy. I finally found one from a guy on here. I picked it up a few weeks ago, well everything but the seats and seat belts. I have a lead on the seats and seat belts and should hopefully be getting them this coming weekend.
The overall plan for the car is to be a nice naturally aspirated DD. For the drive train I am doing the standard 949 supermiata build. Stock VVT motor, flat-top manifold, eBay header for now, stock exhaust and intake, and MS3X. Long term I am planning on swapping in a RB header and building a 2.5" exhaust. Also plan on going with one of the new carbon fiber intakes that are possibly being made. I might eventually swap in a 6 speed and 3.63 rear end if I ever find the 3.63. Interior is getting sound deadening and then the red interior swapped in.
First layer of sound deadening.
Second layer is some Refletix I got from Lowes. Was recommended by people on m.net
Bottom carpet is installed.
Dash and door cards are installed.
The rear window on the top installed was bad, the car came with a placement top which was cool. I ended up not using the replacement I got and instead swapped on a spare top where the rear window unzips. I prefer those over the ones where the rear window is fixed in.
VVT motor and flat top is in. I have done a coolant reroute. I need to install the exhaust section, do all the wiring to NB sensors hook up accessory hoses, install and hook up radiator, hook up fuel lines, and install intake.
