Turbo Miata - FOR SALE AGAIN

Category: Import
Status: Clean Title
Mileage: 165k miles chassis, 45k on drivetrain: engine, 6-speed, Torsen rear 3.90 with axles (CURRENT as of 8/5/14)
Engine Size: 1.8 Turbo

The new-to-me bug has bitten. I'm looking for something different. The car is a well-sorted 1997 Montego Blue with Hard Top and 6-speed. There's no lien on the car.

Several years ago, TurboTim (Absurdflow) built the kit with GT2560R turbo, custom manifold. It put down 275whp/244tq at a Miata dyno day. Since then, I've switch throttle bodies and gone full stand alone w/ MegaSquirt 3. Braineack has tuned the car and it runs great.

Here's what the car has:

99/00 JDM drivetrain with 45k miles on it. Very strong! (220whp/197tq at York Automotive's dyno)
custom exhaust manifold (Absurdflow)
3" exhaust
Upgraded Mishimoto radiator
front mount intercooler
Recirc BOV
BEGI coolant reroute kit
JDM 6-speed with correct 3.9Torsen LSD and axles
Walbro 225 lph fuel pump
99 fuel rail
ACT Clutch

-Engine Management and gauges-
MegaSquirt v3 (built and tuned by Braineack)
AEM Wideband O2 sensor and gauge
Defi Oil Pressure
Defi Boost gauge
(these three gauges are mounted on the left A-pillar)

One year old Koni Race with Eibach springs, not sure what Front sway and rear are. Aligned in July by Andrewtech.

Good condition - black dash, tan carpet and seats. Seats were reskinned w/ vinyl ("pleather") and show wear on the side bolsters where I enter the car. Removed some foam (foamectomy)
Hard Dog double deuce roll bar
Soft top - removed
Aftermarket crappy head unit CD player - amp and wires removed
Nardi steering wheel from an NB - nice feel

Body is in good condition. It's got some dents/dings, scuffs, and show rocker panel rust. Montego Blue in color (so is the hard top).
Mazdaspeed front lip installed.
Brakes: new pads/rotors/fluid (Hawk HP+/stock rotors/Motul RBF600)


I've got 2 sets of wheels: 15x7 Team Dynamics painted a dark BMW grey with 225/45/15 Bridgestone Rival IIs. The other set is 6 7spokes (painted black) with 1-year old winter tires.

The car has cold, working A/C.

It also has Power Steering and ABS.

Please feel free to contact me with questions. Braineack and TurboTim did a fantastic job with the car.

Please feel free to contact me.
