Yup. Think Blue Oval version of an R5 turbo.

I remember seeing one of the original Shoguns (factory proto IIRC) at a car show back in '91. Always thought they were cool and have often thought about building a clone, or doing something similar with an early 90's Sentra and Maxima motor.

$1750 is he asking price, because it came from his automatic Miata which is ultra rare.

haha makes perfect sense. You can get a brand new Hardtop from Mazda with fresh paint for 1200 or 1400 or something and this monkey is asking 1750 or an old rattlecan hard top with ripped out seals.

This car reminds me of Evil Deadpool

1990 Mazda Miata 1.8 turbo - $2500 (Beavercreek)
1990 Mazda Miata 1.8 turbo

I'm finally letting go of my turbo miata project car. This car doesn't need much to be driving, but I know if I hold on to it I'll just keep dumping money into it and it'll be a never ending project. Also I just currently don't have time for it.

Details are as follows:

1990 Mazda Miata 5 speed.
Odometer reads 178318 miles, but odometer descirpancy due to engine swap
1.6 vlsd rear
manual windows and locks
power steering removed and rack modified using fm method (Flyin' Miata : Tech: 1.8 conversion)
Brand new inner tie rods, and outer r package tie rods (better angle for lowered cars)
Factory AC completely removed
black interior has carpet but missing some panels
Passenger seat has one cigarette burn and broken zipper around headrest speakers
Good tombstone, center console, guage hood and dash
2 guage pillar pod for boost and afr guages
Airbag removed from steering wheel
Airbag wiring removed (airbag light on in dash)
Wire to ebrake has been cut (brake light on in dash)
Drivers quarter has been replaced due to car hitting a pole. Driveline and suspension still straight
Lower control arms replace in rear due to stuck lower shock bolts
raceland coilovers (still have helper springs)
Hood and trunk latches have been removed, have pins but need installed
Rollbar welded in by previous owner. Looks homemade but is solid
Top in good shape but back window is cut out.
Have door panels but not in great shape
drivers window roller is pair of vice grips due to messed up splines
Wipers, all lights, and heater blower motor all work
No horn
No radio, door speaker wires have been cut
No door switches
Missing rear finish panel
Roller wheels and tires included - mismatched steel wheels
Battery has been kept on trickle charger
Ignition switch cleaned
Front fenders are in poor condition
Previous owner spray painted each body panel a different color, as well as stripping the hood of the majority of paint, then splatter painting it. I have begun to sand off the spray paint but havent made much progress.
Factory red can still be found on the interior, as well as both bumpers and around the windshield frame.


Car has 1.8 engine swap from 1994 ford escort gt
Flyin miata throttle body adapter
Stock throttle cable adapted
1.8 miata oil pan and intake
Factory ford valve cover
Supposed 40,000 miles (have pics of pistons when head gasket was replaced, but no proof other than word of PO)
Only 2 miles on brand new felpro head gasket, factory replacement head bolts
Entire felpro top end gasket kit used
Head was decked (very minimal material removed- do not recall actual number) and cleaned before reinstallation
Supposed stage three unsprung clutch and lightweight flywheel, though I can not confirm
Converted to COPs using 1.6 ignition and Toyota COP
Engine management is first gen MSPNP9093 - has usb adapter cable for tuning
1.8 cast turbo manifold
GT28 ebay turbo (oil and water fed) with internal wastegaste
Oil feed uses existing boss on block and drains to pan
water feed inline with existing external water lines
Coolant reroute (benefits of fwd motor)
2.5" Aluminum intercooler piping
Ebay bov
front mount intercooler
160 degree thermostat installed with new head gasket
Timing belt and water pump look good- did visual inspection when replacing head gasket
Clutch!!
LC1 wideband with digital guage
backlit boost guage
divorced gases 2 piece downpipe has been hacked together but does the job
3" exhaust with no cat or muffler. Also not perfect but again does the job
walbro fuel pump
Brand new gm iat sensor the is wired but needs hole drilled and tapped in intercooler (will include tap or may get installed if i can borrow the drill bit)
Oil and water lines are rubber line - was going to have stainless lines made
Denso injectors - believe to be 440cc
Brand new ngk plugs when head gasket was done
Mobil 1 10w 40 synthetic oil used when head gasket was redone

NEEDS:
install rest of interior
wideband wired up
exhaust reinstalled
lower control arms and rear coilovers installed (I'll probably get this done before it leaves)
4 wheel alignment
Hood and trunk pins installed (4 pins included)
Front fenders and bumper reinstalled
top installed
IAT drilled, tapped and installed
Tuned

I will not guarantee that this is everything that the car needs, however it is all that I have planned for it and should get the car very close. I have not had this car running since summer of 2013. Immediately after I did the head gasket I put 2 miles on the car, but wasnt happy with how many things were done so the car was pulled apart and has been sitting since then, though i have been working on it slowly.
Engine can be spun over to prove that it is not locked up. I do not have compression test or leakdown numbers.

Car could definitely use some body work and paint. Not by any means perfect but could be a good start to a decent car, or very close to an ugly but fast turbo miata

Extras I have that could be included for the right deal:
Spare block, crank, and head (head is complete but in pieces)
Spare motor complete but needing rebuilt
bp4w intake cam
Spare seatbelts
Tan carpet
Black tonneau cover in decent shape
Spare rear diff housing (ring and pinion destroyed)
H4 conversion headlamps
Enkei 16" wheels with 205/45/16 toyo proxes tires
Brand new in box innovate lc2 wideband
spare center console
different trunk lid in much better shape
spare front rotors
drilled and slotter rear rotors
used but plenty of life left hawk brake pads
brand new in box master cylinder
Brand new in box outer tie rods (decided to use r package tie rods instead)
rear finish panel with one chunk missing (bit larger than a quarter) and one small crack - has been plastidipper black and badges removed but can be included


As mentioned, car definitely needs some love, however all parts are there to build a quick little turbo miata.

Asking $2500 obo, may be open to trades
Any questions please feel free to ask. More pictures can be sent upon request

Holy $hit! Somebody better jump on that! A NB for $2,000 with a hardtop and all that other stuff? Deal of the day.
If it was local to me, I'd ****** it up right now.

1991 mazda miata.
1991 mazda miata. - $4500






I have a 1991 mazda miata. It has 67.xxx original miles. This car has been completely put back together. The previous owner took the car apart to paint it. Instead i got the car and finished it the way i wanted. The paint is called plum. Currently has adjustable dampening suspention, and a new steering wheel. Deep dish 10".the interior of the car is all brand new and custom. The carpet is super black. And the seats are in such perfect condition they are still blue. No sun fade marks. No holes. This car is almost perfect. Dashboard is also redone with a custom cupholder. Clean title. This car is worth a lot of money. You don't see many miata this original and good condition. I would like to trade for a wagon or 4 door something. I would also be interested in something lifted. I don't have a preference just something bigger. Thanks for looking. Text me at 775.two two zero. 230two
I'm looking to trade this car because my girlfriend is now pregnant and I need something bigger. I hate to see this car leave with having all the work I have put into it but it's time to move on I guess... the blinkers are all there. Just not in pics. The only piece this car needs to be 100% is the rear license plate garnish. I have one it's just broke. I also have extra parts for everything. Wheels and lowering suspention. It's extra if you want it but I have 2 cars worth of extra parts also.
