Default 1990 Turbo Mazda Miata

Its a Mariner Blue 1990 Mazda Miata with 110,000 miles on the chassis and maybe 50,000-60,000 on the JDM 1.6 long snout engine (early 1990-1991 1.6's like the original out of this car had problems with the crank pulley breaking off).

Mod list:
FM2 Turbo kit from Flyin Miata
FM2 kit included their link programmable ECU with software from Data Log Lab
New JDM motor with 45 to 50K miles
95 LSD
95 bigger brakes
Stainless Steel braided Brake lines
Willwood adjustable brake proportioning valve
Koni Adjustable shocks with coilover system
Eibach custom spec'd springs (went through 3 sets to find the correct balance between comfort and handling)
ISC upper shock mounts
FCM bumpstops
Flyin Miata Single turbo exhaust with free flow cat or test pipe (will come with both)
Polypro suspension bushings everywhere
Rear sub brace
Kirk 6 point roll bar
Cobra clubman seat
SABelt 6 point harness
NRG Thin Quick Release wheel Attachment
NRG 320mm steering wheel
Racing Beat front and rear sway bars
Racing Beat tie bar in front
Miata tie rod ends with angle for lowered cars (helps with bump steer)
Spal high flow fan
Ron Davis Aluminum high capicity radiator
ATS comp lite wheels (15x7 35 mm offset)
New Falken Azenis RT-615 tires (205 50 15)
C5 sport seats with lumbar support
Will bring Cobra Sportman seat with slider
Power steering
Ice cold A/C
Factory hard top

7,000 takes it. I thought about parting it out to build an LS1 miata but this thing is too nice and too reliable to chop up.

I'm going to look for either a rolling chassis NB, a finished LS1 FD, or a rolling FD
