The photos of the car’s cleanliness speak for themselves. All door seals, door jambs, trunk seal channel, everything look almost brand new. This is the cleanest Miata I’ve seen, and it’s obvious it’s been kept in the garage all of its life.

The engine also speaks for itself. KMiata’s kit is excellent and makes a K24 and a Miata a match made in heaven. Awesome drivability, big power, and a 8500RPM redline is unbelievably good. Drivability is OEM-like without any hesitations, bad hot/cold starts, etc. This can and was driven every day.

Numerous custom parts were designed to improve upon what the current aftermarket does not supply. Big Wilwood brakes w/ OEM (read: inexpensive) 11.6” rotors, brake bias **** that is located inches from the shifter for quick adjustments, ducted oil cooler, high end Bilstein double adjustable coilovers, and the list goes on.

The gauge panel was custom made to mount a large 4.5” tach as the centerpiece. From there, water/oil temp and oil pressure and a custom OLED display/datalogger that displays speed, fuel level, voltage, and other information.

The high end Bilstein AS2 double adjustable coilovers would cost someone almost $4000 fully built. These coilovers were custom built and valved with this particular car’s physical data to further take advantage the lightness the K-swap provides. The length of the rear shocks were custom machined to provide lots of wheel travel. Custom urethane foam bumpstops were made to compliment the springs.

Overall, the car is extremely tight and very smooth. This car was built to mimic the characteristics of the 981 Cayman S. It’s a wonderful blend of everyday drivability and track worthiness. It has been through many wet and dry track days and is well sorted. It’s comfortable, rides well and is of overall high quality.

PM for more photos if needed or to trade phone numbers.

This may be the nicest miata I've ever seen for sale here.

I think you're not asking enough for it. Would be such a fun dual-duty car.

I appreciate that. I hope somebody can enjoy the car as much as I do.

Gorgeous car for a sensational price, I have close to this much tied up in my build and none of my stuff is anywhere near as nice as this. Good luck, i hope this car finds a worthy home.

If the sale falls through I'm local (in Shoreline) and very interested in your car. If possible I'd love to meet up this weekend and check it out.

Did you 3D print that gauge cluster? If so, do you still have that gauge cluster file?

When I'm done parting out my Civic in a few weeks and if this is still for sale I may have to contact you. I never finished my Kmiata years back and its haunted me ever since. This looks like it would be a damn good replacement for what I was doing with my own. Biggest hurtle would be figuring out how to get it to the East coast with breaking the bank since the car itself would kind of be doing that itself lol.

Well done man, well done!
