I am selling the 1990 turbo Miata I built for the $2009 Grassroots Motorsports Challenge. The car performed very well, placing 8th out of 55+ cars in the auto-x portion. I am going in a different direction for next year and need to sell this car before embarking on another project.
Here are the details:
1990 turbo Miata
Engine/under the hood
Greddy turbo kit
Cold air intake
AIT delete option
Front mount intercooler (needs a better mounting solution)
Koyo aluminum radiator (not yet installed)
2.5” test pipe
2.5” custom exhaust
Megasquirt standalone (custom built by Braineack)
Walbro 255 fuel pump
Vacuum boost gauge
KYB adjustable shocks/H&R springs
ACT extreme pressure plate
ACT 4-puck disc
Shock tower brace
Mazdaspeed comp motor mounts
Rota 15x6.5 rims (decent condition)
225/45/15 Hoosier R6 (2 weekend’s use)
Top half of dash present
Hardtop (some damage by right front latch but completely weatherproof)
The car wasn't running right when I bought it, but now runs and drives incredibly strong. It recently placed 8th in the auto-x of The $2008 Grassroots Motorsports Challenge (a competition of 55+ cars) with zero testing or tuning. It was built to be a track car and wouldn’t be terribly pleasant for long highway cruises. After purchasing the car, I discovered that the floorboards had rust, so I cut them out and patched them with galvanized steel. The yellow portions of the exterior appear to be factory paint while the lower half was recently painted with Rustoleum. It is as hard as nails and incredibly durable. At some point in its life, the car was in a small right front collision which appears to have been repaired well, but accounts for the misaligned headlight cover.

I have not had the car on a dyno, but the car pulls well once the boost comes on.
I originally found this car via a link on this forum. I purchased it for $2300 and have since added the 1) hardtop; 2) custom built MS unit; 3) the Koyo aluminum radiator, and; 4) nearly new Hoosier race tires.
The title is clear and in hand. Currently the car is registered in Florida. Please contact me for any additional questions. Thanks.
