This is more of a feeler than anything, but I'm thinking about selling/parting out my Miata. The car is fast, runs very well, and feels very solid compared to a stock Miata, still makes me grin from ear to ear every time I drive it.
It's a 1990 chassis with clean title, 223k miles. Comes with a factory mariner blue hardtop with defrost and rennenmetal hardtop brackets.
The car was dyno tuned by Steve Kan at prt performance in Lewisville, TX, it made 305 whp and 278 wtq on 20 psi and e85. The car has a potential of making 400 whp if a custom intake manifold and bigger throttle body were to be installed (it's still on stock manifold and throttle body).
Fully built 1991.5 1.6 long nose crank motor:
Wiseco 8.5:1 forged pistons (+1mm overbore), Manley rods, acl race bearings, boundary engineering oil pump, gates blue racing timing belt, new water pump, cometic head gasket, arp main and head studs.

949racing 6 puck clutch with act light weight flywheel arp flywheel bolts and stainless braided clutch line. It has a 3.63 torsen diff, and garagestar delrin diff mounts.
It's on bc coils (10k/8k springs) with around 20k miles on them. 15x9 -15 rota rkr's with 225/45 15 hankook rs3s in the front and the same size toyo r888's in the back. 1.8 brakes with stainless brake lines and hawk hp+ pads. Hard dog roll bar. Flyin' Miata frame rail braces and garagestar fender braces.
The interior is pretty clean, the dash is flocked and has one small crack that has been glued back together, and a brand new set of oem floor mats. There's no radio, a/c, heater or power steering. Carpet was removed and replaced with several layers of spray-on undercoating.

Carbonmiata fender flares, replica garage vary lip, feed style side skirts, autokonexion v2 trunk lid, uras replica hood vent. Cut rear bumper, flyin miata front and rear tow hooks.
Motor has 2000 miles on it, diff was purchased with I think around 3k miles on the rebuild/3.63 swap (I've put maybe 500 more miles on it), mazdaspeed 6 speed trans came out of a car with 88k, the brakes were replaced at the same time as the engine.
The car needs paint, overall body is very straight with very few small dents and dings, but the paint is terrible and pealing off a lot of places, most of the hood is spray painted. Pictures really don't do justice to how well built and solid this car feels and drives.
There's well over $25k worth of parts on this car, with receipts for all of it. Looking for $13k cash, but make me an offer and I'll think about it. I am in no rush to sell so price is kind of firm, if I can't get what I want from it I'll part it out. PM me if interested and I can take pics of specific things if you would like them.
