Default FS: 1991 Mazda Miata (1.8L VVT/Rotrex)

Hello,

My name is Will and I’m selling my 1991 Miata. I’m starting my masters soon and could use the extra money to pay for classes. All the below modifications have been done by myself (automotive engineer/ASE certified mechanic) and all maintenance has been done religiously. The car has 3 owners (me included) and has never seen snow ever. Since I have owned the car, it has been garaged in a climate controlled environment. Everything works, and there are no lights on the dashboard. Otherwise, it is an incredibly clean “get in and go” car that puts down some crazy laps or some great fun on the streets. I will include a write-up with all modifications and where to get any specialty maintenance items (supercharger belts) if you need in the future. Clean title in-hand. I'm asking $9,700.

Wow, if I wasn't buying a house, I would be tempted to sell my car and buy this. Everything done right from the sound of things.

The wiring is still there. If you wanted to add it back, you'd need a headunit, door speakers and a panel to put the headunit in. But why have radio when you have the glorious sounds of the supercharger??

Yep that's my brother. He has a good "sights and sounds" video of the car too.

Like 205-210 deg F coolant temps, not sure on oil since I don't log it. That's the beauty of the Rotrex, you just turn it on and go without worry. TDR makes a great kit that gives you a good amount of quality ducting. I did some more myself.
