I have falling on some bad luck with cars recently and have decided that I need to thin the herd. Up for sale is my 1991 Mazda Miata BRG Special Edition. 4000 of these cars were made with British Racing Green paint and tan interior. I bought this car off a reputable local Miata mechanic and have had no reliability issues with it. I have owned it for a bit over 2 years now and have put on 2k miles tops. The car is garaged year round and never sees the rain.
The car currently runs well with the exception of the Idle Stabilizer Valve which is now plugged (described below). It idles well at 1k RPMs. The previous owner removed the AC and PS. It holds 7-8 psi to redline off the wastegate actuator, I had it running up to 14 psi at one point until the old actuator crapped out on me. As it sits I’d say it has ~150ish whp, with it up to 14 psi it was probably around 200-210 whp (felt much quicker than my e46 M3). The car is rather comfortable to drive for such a modified car, even without PS.
I’m asking $6000 for the car and any parts I have for it. The only trades I’m interested in at this time are a pre-73 BMW 2002, Porsche 914 or a Triumph TR6. If you’re serious about a purchase please email me at Scott.M.Ring@gmail.com
The car has the following modifications:
Tokico Illumina shocks with dampening adjustability
Ground Control adjustable coilovers (425f/300r)
Chaparral 15×7 wheels
Toyo T1-R 205/50 tires with ~2k on them
HardDog Hardcore 4 point roll bar (harnes bar removed for seat adjustment)
TurboTim tubular exhaust manifold and downpipe (same guy that makes Absurdflow products)
Chinacharger from Begi – 725/728 water cooled
eBay intercooler with custom piping
TIAL 50mm BOV
RX-7 550cc injectors, cleaned and balanced 1k ago
MSPnP 9093 – pre-built Megasquirt unit for the 1.6l motors
Innovate LC-1 wideband with XD-16 guage
Flyin’ Miata Turbo Dual Exhaust
Oldschool Momo steering wheel with Momo hub
What it comes with that’s not installed:
“Stein” frame rails to stiffen up the frame and get rid of the dreaded cowl shake all these Miatas have.
A set of used 1.8L brakes (bigger than the earlier brakes)
R front lip (just installed but not in pictures)
What the car needs />It could use some more tuning time. The fuel table is safe but not efficient and I have setup the timing table EXTREMELY conservative. The car will come with a pair of e-det cans for timing tuning.
Idle stabilizer valve recently got stuck open. I have the hose blocked off and set the idle at 1000 rpms. It drives happily but requires a bit of gas on start-up. Many people run their track cars this way.
Right rear brake rattles over bumps, the little springs that hold the pads open aren’t being effective or are missing. As mentioned above I have a whole used 1.8l brake setup that goes with the car.
ABS unit does not work, the pick-up rings on the rear axles are missing, looks like the axles were changed at some point in time. If this bothers you swapping in some axles with the rings should fix the problem.
No catalytic converter. I haven’t had the car inspected for 2 years knowing it wouldn’t pass. I recently found out that NJ will allow collector plates on this car which will no longer require inspections. If need be you can put a 2.5 in-out cat in the straight section of the exhaust without a problem, I just never bothered.
