The Awesome
This thing is sticky, makes good noises, has great power, pulls hard, runs like a top, has cold AC, rides great, looks incredible. You can add your own stereo and swap in the lighting products i have for ultimate street car Miata, or you can simply add a roll bar and seats for a ready-to-rock track car. I SUSPECT that this car would be faster around a track than Hater. It certainly makes more power, runs better, and is less aero-limited due to having a stock body and a not-stupid wheel/tire setup.


Fresh 60k service including all fluids. (It wasn't even due.) Amsoil in the diff/trans, Rotella T6 in the engine, ATE200 in the hydraulics. Replaced all clutch hydraulics at the same time. The entire build has about 2000 miles on it.



The Not-So-Awesome
The car is generally in incredible condition for something that's nearly 20 years old at this point. The only real noticeable cosmetic blemishes are a couple weird dents in the hood (they aren't large, but they are there), and the bottom hardtop trim/welting is old/brittle/not adhering well. It should be replaced, or removed entirely. I see lots of hardtops without this part at all.
There isn't a stereo. I haven't gotten to that. Circumstances dictated that i needed to press this into DD service before i had time to finish up the last of the non-mechanical things.
It's a little loud inside. The exhaust is pretty quiet, but deep. It may be resonating a bit, but i think the bulk of the noise is due to the motor mounts. The lower durometer (and much bigger bushing'd) V8R engine mounts are to correct that.



The Price.
Yes.... i really did say $12k. You're going to have a rough time finding an NB with these miles in this condition, let alone one that's been COMPLETELY gone through like i did with this.

That said... if you're looking for a stock car to build yourself, click the back button. If you're looking for a car that's built anything like this and want to save a few grand (i feel sick), this is your car. Buy now.

Just out of sheer morbid curiosity, I wonder whether this setup would pass our local OBDII reading, CEL code only smog inspection.

Bump for a clean machine.

JDM ECUS aren’t OBD2 compliant, so it won’t return a ready state.

If it involves someone plugging into the OBD2 port, it will not. OBD2 is completely non-functional as far as i can tell.

I can include the original ECU with sale, but the last time i hooked it up was to set the tach. It didn't run well on the original ECU anymore. It runs like a beast with the 5A ecu though. Feels more like a VVT car, positively meaty low/midrange.
