1994 Mazda Miata - $4200
Status: Clean Title
I have a 1994 Mazda Miata for sale, in USA - Florida.
Mileage: 221000 miles
Engine Size: 1.8
Asking price is $4200
1994 r-package. 221000 miles on chassis, approx 71k miles on motor.
Engine was built 21k miles ago using a Protege short block, new water pump, timing belt, etc. The original head was freshened up with a port match, smoothed radius bend, unshrouded valves and new valve seals. Engine does not burn oil and runs strong. Transmission was rebuilt with new bearings at 185K due to noise.
Megasquirt ECU, with factory ECU running a/c and idle.
Toyota supra black top 430cc low-z injectors (honda resistor box).
Walbro 220 lph fuel pump.
Toyota COP conversion.
Garrett SR20DET turbo (journal bearing 2554) rebuilt when installed normal shaft play, no smoke. Currently running 10psi.
HKS ssqv blow off valve, large intercooler.
LC-1 wideband with digital gauge.
Hard Dog sport roll bar.
Custom tig manifold made from sch 40 mild steel elbows.
Stainless steel bellmouth style downpipe with v-bands.
Straight thru exhaust, no cat, no muffler. Has a resonator.
Satin black urethane paint.
OBX springs 7.5kg/5.3kg on factory bilsteins with adjustable perches.
BfGoodrich g-force sport tires, 10/32 rear(new) 5/32 front.
The ugly / known issues:
Needs a better clutch. I took a gamble with a stage 2 ebay clutch. It slips in 4th and 5th gear after about 4.5k rpms. Holds fine 1-3rd gears.
HLA's noisy when cold (pretty normal for an old NA actually).
Very random misfire when cruising on the highway, seems worse when cold outside. It never did this before I installed the toyota COPS, so I'm guessing one of the coils is acting up.
DIY electronic boost controller is installed but stopped working. I made a DIY manual boost controller and that has been working fine.
Exhaust manifold has a small crack at the back of the collector, doesnt seem to affect boost though.
Overall the car is in good shape for its age. It is my daily driver and has never left me stranded.
