Default Considering selling my miata

I am thinking of selling my miata as i have to get my *** in a four year school and i have no need for my weekend warrior anymore. let me go ahead and say the things it doesnt have.

Does not have...

heat
ac
drivers/passengers windows
complete soft top
passenger mirror
flip up headlights
wipers
emissions

I never used ac in a miata before so i never missed it. as for the heat, it does get cold in 40 degree weather but the exhaust usually heats the floor a little. i have a car cover for it so she doesnt get wet inside so i dont really miss the windows and i would never drive it in the rain anyways. i have doors with windows in them if you would prefer me to add them in. i have headlights installed in the turn signals and i just use rain-x instead of wippers (works better in my opinion anyways) and i live in sc so there is no emission laws. so this car may not be for you, its not supposed to be a daily driver but it will do just about anything you want it to on the weekend.

Things it does have...

ill start with the turbo setup since this is a turbo miata forum and thats probly what your interested in...

mild steel log manifold with a gt28 off of a nissan pulsar gtir. it will support about 270 whp. i currently have it set at 18 psi but still have yet to dyno it. i would guess its in the 250 whp bracket right now. its got a full 3 inch exhaust with an external tial 38mm wastegate dumping into the downpipe. its got 2.5 inch stainless intercooler piping and a bar and plate intercooler up front. it goes into a sheetmetal intake manifold that has no idle control valve or anything on it (idles and starts up great anyways ) fuel managment is a megasquirt v 2.2 tuned by a local tuning guru. i am using rc 440's and a walbro. and the bov is a greddy rs knock off.

suspension...

poly bushings all around
1" flyin miata front sway bar and stock rear
adjustable endlinks all around
all good ball joints/ wheel bearings
1.8 brakes all around with ebc red's
front brakes have vents coming from the lip to the center of the disk
stock valve koni yellows with 2000k miles on them
custom top hats (i have 4 inches of travel at the current ride height)
h&r race springs with the rates of 500 front and 325 rear
fat cat bump stops
1.8 rear end conversion with a custom made clutch pack lsd from a rx7 guru in asheville
delrin differential bushings

the engine was rebuilt about 3k miles ago and runs greeeat. putting out great compression and has no leaks. it has a flyin miata high boost head gasket and arp head studds but it still has stock rods/pistons. it has a brand new oil pump and water pump main/rod bearnigs seals gaskets rings hoses and everything.

the clutch is a flyin miata act clutch, street disk and exteme pressure plate. its suuuuper smooth i looove it, best clutch ever! tranny is a 1.8 but it grinds on heal toeing into second, about the only real complaint i have about the car.

never overheats, i drove to charelston (3 hour trip) in 100 degree heat and never had to turn on the fan.

itll come with my kosei k1's and brand new bfg g force sports f/r

this is a verified 2050 pound car without gas or roll bar or driver

there will be a roll bar (4 pt) in it by the time i sell, a kill switch and should be done painting

if you have any further questions please ask. here are all the pic's and vids i have of it...

I want to make an offer, I'll try to PM you but i'm afraid it may not work yet. You say no flip headlights, I take it also means no headlights correct? that would be the only thing making not street legal correct? And a side note, I couldn't find any decent photo's of the interior, how much is gone?

My post count has been reduced to keep me from PM'ing more, I have read your PM and have tried to send one back to you, finding out why i can't PM anymore in the process. I live in Orlando, FL, can you PM me your email?
