Ditto, if I had some cash sitting around, not 21K mind you, I would buy this beast in a hurry!

$19.900 buys it.

again, 550 cc injectors will only feed it so much fuel.
1200cc injectors would add a considerable about of hp...the motor is built to take a whole lot more and the turbo is efficient to 450

i actually drive totally normal 99% of the time...

obviously if i'm going to make a vid clip i'm going to get on it a little...

notice that i never powershift gears, i never dump the clutch, i never "abuse" the car in any way...i merely lay on the throttle and shift normally. You won't see any abuse in any of those vids...the tires are only ones that suffer

and if it wasn't that they're so damn sticky, i'd have REAL problems keeping her going straight.

Was wondering if you were on here. Is that an SAFC you're using with your management?

That looks like Dexter's condo in the 3rd pic.

$16,975 buys this rocket folks.

2000 miles on it since the complete overhaul...runs perfect.
Moving out of the country, if i don't get the lousy $16,750 i'm shipping the car with me.

I have over $30,000 into this car.
Go up the list and put some LOW figures next to each item and you'll find yourself going way over $30K, NOT including labor.

Car is in so.FL ready to go.

1200cc injectors would be overkill. Needs 740s or 850s

the car leaves tire marks on the pavement when pulling in 3rd gear, RIGHT NOW.
had it not been for the RS3 super sticky 225's this thing would be all over the place.

with 100whp more power it would be insane.

As far as I know the last year to finance (with my credit union) is 2000. As part of the requirment it has to pass a Certified Mechanical inspection for the loan to be approved, so hope that the mechanic is not a turd that is going to say the car is unsafe for some bullshit reason i.e. The car is rebuilt just because the motor is a 2.0 and not the OEM 1-8. Anyhooters if you really want this car talk to all your banks about a personal loan

Not trying to thread crap, because it does seem like a nice car. There was a sweet NB posted a year or so ago here in the same price range, similar build, 4XX WHP. AFAIK, he ended up parting it. It's just tough to sell one complete. GLWS.

Here's the link for reference. https://www.miataturbo.net/forum/t17853/ Lot's of OMG I want it, no buyers.
