Yeah, it's wordy but my car ads are always wordy. I has no idea what it's worth. Im thinking somewhere between $6500-$8000 but I dunno. Thanks for any advise, insults or death threats. Im thinking about selling the Miata and my IS300 and getting an S2k and another 4-wheeler.

I got this car somewhere around 16-18 months ago. It was stock and had brand new paint and tires. It runs and drives perfect with only 116k miles. It doesn't burn oil or leak oil or smoke, etc. Has never overheated and I have kept the oil changed every 3k with Mobil-1 synthetic and Purolator Pure-One filters. Since turbocharging it about 12k-15k ago, I have not had a single problem - not even a coupler blowing off. I have driven this car a bunch to Alabama and back as well as Charlotte and back.
No aftermarket parts on the car are over 1.5yrs old with the exception of the turbo. Car was dynoed recently @ 241whp. I forget the brand of dyno but it was done with a 15% correction to read as a Dynojet would have. It's running a pretty conservative tune - mid 11:1's A/F in full boost which is about 12-13psi. It makes full boost around 3000rpm and is extremely responsive. With slicks this car could run potentially pull 12.x quarter mile times.
professionally cleaned and tested RX-7 460cc injectors.
Walbro 255lph fuel pump (installed new filter also)
Knock-off Type-S Blowoff valve (recirculated but still definitely audible)
Full 2.5" downpipe and exhaust with almost-stock quiet muffler with a nice rolled tip
Cable-operated exhaust cut-out bypasses the muffler for more power and faster spool.
AEM F/IC fully programmable fuel and ignition controller. It is a piggyback, not a standalone but is extremely capable.
AEM UEGO wideband (only about 6 months old)
VDO Boost Gauge
tiny, almost unnoticable shift lights in the pillar pod
Toyota Coil-on-plug conversion just done a few months ago.
Hard-dog roll bar
Tein S-Tech springs
KYB AGX adjustable shocks
Brakes (front) - Hawk HPS pads
Brakes (rear) - new pads and rotors less than 2k ago.
Torsen LSD running synthetic gear oil.
"F1 Racing" - 6 puck sprung clutch.
Front Tires are Yokohama and probably need replacing soon.
Rear Tires are Falken and have about 1000-2000 miles on them
Brand new head unit. I forget the brand but its Sony or Kenwood...something. Nothing too special but it sounds nice
New headrest speakers
New Pioneer 3-way door speakers
Amplified Bazooka Tube in the trunk
Tinted windows - ok but not great
A/C, Power steering, Power windows, Power mirrors.
The bad: Has some dings and a few very small chips. The clutch squeaks taking off from a start. It's been like this since I installed the clutch last year. It doesnt hurt anything - it's just a little annoying. It's a 6-puck clutch so it requires a little more finess than a stock clutch to drive. The car was in a collision just before I bought it and was declared totalled. I have a picture of the car in it's totalled state and it was a joke. Just a dented driver door and fender. Otherwise I wouldnt have bought it myself. It was purchased from a well-known Miata mechanic/SPEC miata racer.
Obviously a 2000lb car with 240whp is no toy. I don't want to sell this to anyone under 18, nor will I let anyone under 18 test drive it. Because of the nature of this car, I'll be riding shotgun during any test-drives. Serious inquiries only.
