In a strange turn of events, I have to sell this car.
I bought it back in June to be my daily driver. I got a call, out of the blue, from my cousin and he gave me his car.
The miata is a:
Black 1997 with Leather package, which included the tan top (now black)and tan leather seats, that also had the Popular Equipment Package including the Torsen limited-slip rear differential, rear subframe brace, head-restraint speakers, cruise control, and power antenna. This package also included the Touring Package and Power Steering Package that included power windows, power mirrors, and door map pockets. 127,xxx miles, A/C blows very cold. Minor hail damage on rear deck, could be repaired with paintless dent removal.
FMII Turbo with Link Computer (Note: the system in the car is the early FMII Kit, not the current kit that FM sells). Currently boost is set to 8psi, but can be easily set for upto 15psi.

When I received the car, it had a broken woodruff key and was in need of a timing belt job and some TLC. I replaced the woodruff key, crank pulley, crank boss, timing pulley and did a complete timing belt job with cam seals, front main, valve cover, 160* thermostat and water pump. I replaced the severely messed up lower pivot bolt on the alternator, had the broken bracket on the intercooler re-welded, and replaced 6 or so i/c pipe clamps. I re-ducted the radiator and intercooler with abs plastic panels on the top and bottom. There is a brand new K&N air filter on the intake, as well.
The miata feels very strong and solid. A/C blows cold and the car doesn't overheat in 105* weather.
