*Sorry for the long description, but I take my cars seriously and I like to be upfront. I copied this from a local forum, which doesnt really know much about Miatas so I included info about FM etc which I know everybody here is aware of.
Detailed Description. Car is still on loan but will be paid off this year. Once car is paid off from me or via sale I will sell it, so here goes. Up for sale is my Flyin' Miata powered 1997 Miata. This car is adult driven (babied on a daily basis), and has a detailed maintance schedule since I purchased this car. I have every receipt since day of purchase including original proof of purchase. This car has been reliable since the day I bought it and the feeling of a properly boosted/tuned roadster is unbeliveable. Car was dyno tuned at two different locations to ensure quality, twice at All Aspects in Chesapeake, and once at Abacus Racing, where the initial install was done.
I bought this car with the intention of having a true daily driver, with a little suprise. My goal was to have a comfortable (AC,PS,Audio), safe, and liveable Miata that was different from the rest. I like having a quiet cruise which is why the exhaust has been left untouched. The only sign of modification to the car aside from the FM intercooler is the lowed stance compliment of the JIC FLT-A2 coilovers. When I began to buy parts for this car I only selected the finest parts, no corners were cut plain and simple. Now, I don't have to sell this however, I feel it's right. My priorities have changed. I seldom speed, and will be moving so I will need something with 4 doors. This car should go to someone that will really drive this car as it was meant to be.
This Miata currently has 86,762 miles on the chassis and the Voodoo II turbo kit has about 8,000 with the suspension seeing on about 10,000. The Voodoo II is from Flyin' Miata (Flyin' Miata 1 800 FLY MX5s
) and uses a Garret GT2560 turbo. FM is arguably the premiere Miata tuning company, and hands down has the best customer service. This current setup makes 175 rwhp and 175 tq at 7lbs of boost, on the stock exhaust. A good 2.5'-3' will put you at 200 rwhp. Timing is handled by FM's Voodoo Box and to help fuel delivery is matched is MKII Toyota Supra 305cc injectors. Idle and driveability on this car is amazing especially for a turbocharged car. It drives like an NA. However, when the driver opens it up the 175hp + 2300lbs body + the option to take the factory hard top off is breathtaking. It's so relaxing to take the hardtop off and let the BOV fill your ears. You can't imagine how many double takes people have to do. The car averages 24mpg city and about 27-28 highway, all depending on you.
*Thermostat, heater/radiator hoses
*ACT Clutch, ACT stainless steel clutch line, machined flywheel
*Brakes (Pads/Rotors) front and rear
*Bridgestone Potenza's have about 80% tread left.
This car is not perfect however, and there are small nuisances that I haven't had time to get around too. 1. Car is over 10 years old so paint is not perfect, not bad by any stretch though. There are some small scratches, and one decent one above rear passenger tire from when hardtop latch hit the body. 2. Soft top window has a small crack in it (doesnt leak). This is a result from the soft top being folded for so long, crack is currently taped. 3. AC could use a recharge. 4. Car came from factory with luggage rack, since removed. However this left small holes on the trunk. 5. After you have been driving for a while the car develops a louder intake sound. Had All Aspects check and they found no issue. 6. When shifting about 3,000 rpm there is a vibration from around the heat shield, Abacus Racing investigated and found nothing out of the ordinary.
*I will post pics tomorrow night after the Raiders beat up on the Patriots, thanks for reading.
