Default 1999 Vortec Supercharged Miata

99 miata supercharged

This is my step father's car.

Very quick. Needs stickier tires and more aggressive brake pads.

Any questions, feel free to ask me or call the number on the ad.

Duster! Usually a V6. Didn't some of them come with a Turbo. The lazer motor.

Ding Ding Ding! 1992 Duster with 3.0L Mitsubishi V6.

The car is a ******* tank, and runs great. Anyone want to buy it for $500? No seriously, want to buy it?

Any idea how fast the Miata is? Any specs on the supercharger?

VF Vortech for Miata

I do not have any specs on it directly, other than the above link. It is a pretty big compressor though.

To tell you the truth, it is not much faster than my car in a straight line (at least before the WI was installed). It is a different driving experience though. You have to manage wheel spin though first and second (tires).

Very fun for autoX.

I will see about getting some better pictures.

Interesting. Kind of expensive vs a turbo kit for the power, but so are all the other SC kits I have seen.

I agree completely, and pushed him to get a turbo.

Price aside, it is very fun.

Does not really matter, no one here is going to pay 9k for that car. I think I may have talked him into keeping it anyways.


Sooooo, who wants the Duster?
