Purchased for this conversion, and driven two Summers, to set up suspension, interior, etc., then engine conversion during Winter 2018. Good fuel economy, massive torque when prodded, and with stock-like appearance, a real sleeper! Very quiet exhaust when cruising.

Wish I could figure out how! It's a MP4 on my computer; I can email it to you, if you can do these things? It was a cell phone video taken during a local dyno pull, so I could log revs and AFR's in hopes I could have V8R adjust the fuel trims, but ended up taking the car 150 miles away to a shop known for tuning expertise. I kept the video mostly as a sound clip.

Very clean and looks very well done. I don't suppose you have corner weighed the car?

Thanks! It was a very enjoyable build. I don't have access to scales, so have not corner weighted her, just carefully set ride height for what I felt was as low as practical, with reasonable ground clearance, and without bump steer issues, and had a good shop do the alignment to my specs, which are close to Goodwin and FM street #'s.

You mentioned a dyno but didn't list numbers or post a sheet. Might help with the sale.

Thanks for your interest, but I'm garage space challenged, so not looking to trade. Sounds like a cool ride 'tho!

I'v been asked about the exhaust system; It has a Flowmaster Cat, installed inline, right after the downpipes Y into the 2 1/2in pipe, also a Vibrant SS 18in. long resonator, and finally a SS Borla muffler. I have retained the stock Miata charcoal EVAP system, and the LFX EVAP solenoid is functional, controlled by the LFX PCM.
