I recently picked up this Miata for the turbo kit installed from the Schuster's. I am swapping all the turbo related parts over to my 95, so please do no ask for any of them. I am trying to decide what to do with '96. I am looking to sell it either as a roller or as a running car.
First off the details: 1996 with 136k on the odometer. M edition, so it comes with all the bells and whistles. Tan and black leather interior, premium sound system, power windows, power mirrors, power steering, cruise, ABS, and AC (and it blows cold). The right front fender needs to be replaced. The bumper and hood are repairable. There are some door dings, but the paint is probably a 7 out of 10. The interior shows some wear and tear, but I'd give it an 8 out of 10.
Option 1: Roller $2000
$2500 with a "banged up" hardtop or $3000 with a good hardtop. The roller comes with full interior, but no motor, no trans, no AC setup, no ABS (will install a manual brake setup), or no diff (an open diff can be installed for another $100). Perfect starting point for a LSX swap.
Option 2: Stock $4000
Running, stock, good hardtop. Basically the best I can get back to stock. This car used to be an automatic and apparently has check engine code on the stock ECU. Since I have not installed a stock ECU, I don't know the code. The short block has 20k on it and I will be refreshing the cylinder head while the motor is out to fix a leaking #2 exhaust valve. A Borla 2.25" dual exhaust will be installed.
Option 3: Stock w/ Link ECU $4500
This is just option 2 + Link ECU installed. The Link comes with the control and a Serial Link for connecting to a computer (No longer available new from what I've been told)
Option 4: Stock w/ Link ECU and I/H/E $5000
Option 3 with intake (brand unknown), header (brand unknown), and high flow cat (Flyin Miata) installed. Stock parts will be provided as well.
All prices are negotiable and any reasonable offer will be entertained. I am going to start pulling the turbo setup next weekend. At that point it would be ready to be picked up as a roller. If no one speaks up in the next week or so, I'm going to start putting it back to stock.
