Default SOLD - 90 Greddy Miata - Detroit Area

Edit - The Greddy turbo kit has been sold. The car is still for sale, it's just now an NA NA Some turbo parts still available though.

I've decided to put my Miata up for sale. I bought a race car and now want to buy a tow vehicle so I am considering selling the car. If I can't get what I want for it, I will probably take the car back to a non-turbo setup or completely part it out over the winter.

Right now I'm thinking 6000.

Here is the story.

I've had this car for almost a year. It was a little rough when I picked it up, and I spent a lot of time over the winter going through it and redoing things that I wasn't happy with.

I redid pretty much the whole turbo setup. Upgraded the fasteners, redid the oil return line, put heatshielding on everything, clocked the turbo, relocated the AFM, installed a new air filter, added an MBC, added a dual feed fuel rail, coated the IC piping with POR-15 and installed new couplers.

I also went through and changed all 4 calipers, upgrading the fronts to the bigger 1.8 brakes at the same time, depowered the steering rack, removed the A/C compressor and PS pump, changed the downpipe and exhaust, added a mid pipe and a front subframe brace.

Along the way, I picked up a 30k mile parts car from which I pulled a lot of nice parts off of as well like the seats, shiftboot, steering wheel, downpipe, and exhaust.

Anyway, below is a breakdown of what's on the car. It currently runs very well and is set for 8 psi.

I am seriously interested in your car, but I live in Washington DC. PM me your phone number and I'll give you a ring over the weekend.

Thanks,

I really want to buy your car and swap over the dif, suspension, and hardtop, but I am not currently a high enough roller right now. My lazy wife (been sitting around at home with two perfect kids, easy!) should have a job here pretty soon so I will be playing with this zero percent credit card on its way. We come down to Ferndale often and I just fixed the cruise on the minivan.... Please keep us updated.

No clue what brand the fogs are. They look generic when you look at them closely. They do look nice on the car though.

Well, the car is still available, but I just pulled the Greddy turbo kit out and sold it...

I still have a lot of the turbo accessories though, and it'd it'd make a great start for a DIY turbo Miata.

I'm thinking 3500obo w/o hardtop, 4500 with the hardtop because of all the suspension parts that are on the car, the wheels, upgraded front brakes, and the top and rain rail that are in really good shape. Plus, I have a ton of leftover stuff from the car I parted out that I may be able to throw in.

Or, I may just part it out over the winter.

Also might be interested in trades. Looking for a truck and trailer to tow around my race car.
