Default 2001 SE Begi S4

For sale is my 2001 special edition BRG Miata

Price: $8000 OBO
Location: Pittsburgh PA
Mileage: 65,XXX
Title: clean

General Information:
I bought this car in July 2013 with 54k miles, installed turbo supporting mods (megasquirt, injectors + pump, wideband) in 2013 and turbo kit and other mods in 2014. Car was tuned by Early Performance in Uniontown PA before turbocharging making ~120hp and after where it made 250hp/230tq. The car is stored during winter in my garage. New Yokohama s.drive 205/50/r15’s were just mounted.

This is the 4th Miata I have owned, second turbo’d Miata, and by far my favorite. It is setup primarily as a fun street car and I have done a few autocrosses with it as well. I am selling the car because I just purchased a Lotus Elise.

Modifications:
• BEGi S4 turbo kit
• Turbo manifold reinforced by BEGi
• Garret GT2860
• Rev built MS3 basic + boomslang harness
• GM IAT
• Innovate MTX-L Wideband
• Innovate MTX-D Oil pressure and temperature gauge
• VDO boost gauge
• Injector Dynamics 725cc injectors
• Walbro 190HP fuel pump
• Mazdaspeed motor mounts
• Abe built 3” exhaust v-band with cat, resonator, and magnaflow muffler
• Koyo 37mm radiator
• Flyin Miata airflow (fans + shroud)
• Hard Dog Hard Core Double Diagonal roll bar
• FM Happy Meal stage 1 clutch kit with 13lbs flywheel
• Tein basic coilovers (unknown spring rate)
• 15x8 nickel 6uls
• Porterfield R4S brake pads
• Headlight reflectors painted black

Extras:
• FM Coolant reroute kit
• Extra wheels/tire set I used to store the car for the winter

Issues:
• When I bought the car it had weird electrical issues. The car wouldn't start sometimes, windows wouldn't go up and down, and power door lock wouldn't work. I pulled the alarm system that came with the car and that solved all of the issues, but left the power door locks in a non-functional state. The doors still lock but you have to lock both side manually. Also the car has no key fob functionality now, and there is a red blinking light that reminds you of that all the time.
• The car was tuned in the summer by Early Performance and in colder weather the warmup phase of the tune is not the best. Startups take a few more cranks than normal and things like overrun fuel cut don’t engage until it reaches temp.
• Soft top has a 4” tear above the glass window.
• Cruise Control was removed.
• Interior is a 5/10. Seats are pretty beat up, glove box was removed and the megasquirt is stuffed in its place.
• Paint is a 7/10. The front bumper and hood have a few dings and paint chips. Probably normal for the age of the car but worth pointing out as its certainly not perfect
• No headunit (I have it somewhere I just can't find it)
• The bracket that holds the 3 gauges in the car is kind of whack. The innovative gauges are bigger than normal guages and dont quite fit in it.
• Timing belt and waterpump has not been changed.
• Clutch noise: While the car is rolling in gear, with the clutch pedal pressed to the floor, there is a whine noise that correlates with the speed of the car. Not sure what this is but its been there since the new clutch was installed.

Accident history:
In 2015 I was driving down a local back road. Around a blind corner, a truck had dumped a bed of tree branches in the middle of the road. In an attempt to not plow directly into the mountain of tree limbs, I turned too aggressively to the right and then back left unbalancing the car. This resulted in slide that ended in the top of the rear passenger side quarter panel coming in contact with a guard rail. I made a claim with my insurance company and they popped the dent out and repainted the quarter panel. There were also some light paint scratches in the paint on the passenger door which was also repainted. Nothing other than the rear quarter panel and passenger door had any damage. I also had them repaint the trunk lid while it was in their shop. The owner of the car before me had a wing mounted on the trunk and removed it and repainted, but the paint job was substandard.

Its still a clean title car. The accident was just a dent that was popped and some paint scratches on the passenger side quarter which was repainted along with the passenger door (from scratches).

FYI, you can unplug the factory immobilizer under the dash to get rid of the flashing light. It doesn't have to be plugged in if you're not using the stock ecu.
