Asking price is $6000 obo

1990 Mazda Miata, 1.6 motor. High mileage. Probably a 6 out of 10 on the body. Shines up well, but has some rust on the rockers and scrapes and dings. Runs fine, eats a little oil, but makes good power. The car has AC and power steering, but the AC needs either a charge or conversion. It has a small leak somewhere that I never bothered to fix, but the compressor is fine. I had it recharged, it worked for a while then it leaked and I never bothered to follow up on the leak because I just drove it on nice days.

Turbo Setup
Greddy Turbo and wastegate (these pieces are the only thing Greddy kit related on the car)
Axial Manifold made by Artech drilled professionally for 10mm studs. Powder coated.
Innovate LC1 Wideband
Stripes Intercooler Setup
MS3x made by Braineack
DIY boost solenoid
AIT sensor installed in intercooler end tank
Marren 440cc injectors, built as a matched set
All turbo hoses are from ATP Turbo
All clamps are t-bolt clamps from ATP Turbo
Walbro 190HP pump

Exhaust
Turbo Tony Downpipe, mild steel
3" stainless Enthuza catback with test pipe

Suspension
Tein Monoflex Coilovers 12kg/8kg front/rear
Energy Suspension Poly bushings all around

Drivetrain
FM Clutch with 10.5lb Flywheel
Torsen 4.1 rear differential

Other Modifications/Updates
Harddog Hardcore M1 rollbar
Harddog Receiver Hitch for towing tire trailer
Mazdaspeed Comp Engine mounts (installed 2014)
Two gauge a-pillar pod with O2 and Boost gauges installed

Car has received regular oil changes with Valvoline High Mileage full synthetic. Rear diff gets synthetic oil as well. Timing belt was done around 185k by a friend who is a Miata expert and well aware of possible issues with the short nose crank, crank pulley and keyway are perfect. Belt service done around 200k. Fuel filter was swapped this year when the 440s went on. New clutch master and slave were put on when I did the clutch a few months ago.

The interior is pretty decent. No rips or tears in the seats. One door card has a small hole in it near the bottom. I removed some of the padding from the driver seat so that I fit under the bar. I just swapped out the exterior door rubber as it was deteriorated. It has a new tombstone from a few years back. Working door speakers. Has the Max 5 headrest speakers.

I have mostly used this as an autocross car in the past few years and it is great for that with r-comps. The car is setup exactly right for the power it has now as well as the level of grip it gets from r-comp tires. At the limit it is very neutral and easy to maneuver. It is acceptable as a street car if you are okay with a very stiff suspension. If one were to take it on track it would need an undertray put on as it does not have one now. I have the stock one, but it does not fit with the IC setup. This does not matter for regular street driving or for autocross as the car doesn't get enough heat build up in those situations.

I've run about 10-12lbs of boost on the latest incarnation of the car with the MS, but for most of its life it ran about 5lbs with the band-aids. That was the thing to do back in the day when I first got it. I've had the car for almost ten years now and got it with around 185k miles.

The car has never been anything other than reliable and I've made an effort to always upkeep it over the years that I've had it. Every upgrade I've made has been with some thought put into what was necessary to do it properly.

I'm past the point where I need to have it emissions tested in CT, it passed the sniffer the last time I ran it with a cat and the next test date will be past 25 years where it is exempt, but I do still have the smaller catback with a cat attached in case you need to do emissions, but you will probably have to tune the MS to get it to pass as it runs rich with the current setup.

I'll get some more pics of the engine bay, etc. I have a variety of wheels (Kosei K1 15x7, 15x9 6UL, couple of stock sets), you can have them all.

I also have all the stock parts for the car (excluding the shocks which were toast obviously) if you want them.

I know everything about this car, it is mine from top to bottom.

More pics.

I'm not a dress up type with the car. It has no real frills under the hood for making it look good and in fact there is dust and dirt on things, but everything is functional because racecar. Cable on the passenger side floor is a USB to the MS3x which is stashed in the stock ECU location.

Mileage correction. It's a little over 200k. Which means the car has been driven about 15k miles in the last 9 years since I got it around May of 2005. It has been driven every year, only stored in winter.

Also comes with Covercraft custom car cover (Weathershield HP Fabric).

Not yet. Will see. People seem to want them with the car. They are by far the most asked about inclusion. If I get my asked for price I will include all the wheels with the car as I don't want to be sitting on a bunch of Miata stuff.

Bump. Last bump before she gets parted out. Great deal for someone who wants a turbo Miata with all the trimmings.
