I'm about to get a '91 Miata next week (hopefully).
It's already turbocharged with 10PSI.
This is my first RWD and I'm sure I'll have to take it easy, I've heard Miata and trees don't go well together
I'm actually a little scared of RWD... Does it come with traction control (I assume it doesn't)?
That guy wants $3,000 for it and definitely needs paint, it flat-black at the moment.
I'm trying to find out if it's a good or at least decent deal so here it is:
1991 Miata with approx 90,000 original miles. Manual transmission.
"with turbo intercooler vortec fmu 265cc injectors stage 3 clutch red top batt in the trunk... tranny motor perfect condition."
I think it's a pretty decent setup, am I right?
I says it also needs a tune-up (gas / air mixture, I assume) and it should push 180 hp on 10 PSI. He also mention that it's safe to run it on 15 PSI with this setup - I don't really believe that, can anyone confirm?
So... My questions are:
Is it a good / decent deal, considering the fact that it definitely needs a paint job?
How much would a tune-up cost (approx.)?
Is there anyone from New York around here? (I'm from Brooklyn)
What's a safe PSI (with as less wear as possible)?
Is this too much for me considering it's my first RWD?
I'm sure I'll have more questions soon, I sure hope to get it next week, I hope everything goes well according to my plan!
