Car runs great and makes [email protected] (Makes much more when boost is turned up, and now has a great tune, and makes 231RWHP & [email protected])

Kit was put together by a friend and I, then checked over by Z Fever in tampa. And is very reliable. (Starts every time, no stalls and runs great.)


Heres the pictures









Just testing the waters though, if the price is right, I will sell. I'm in no hurry, but the wife wants me to get something "practical" for "future things."

Also I have some extra parts

8500 OBO

I would have given $10k in a hearbeat for that car 9 months ago, maybe more. Why sell that, which is probably paid for, when you can buy a daily beater civic?

why would you sell it just after finishing it? if you're in no rush, start saving up some money to buy a second, more practical car. Make a "car payment" to yourself into your savings account every pay check until you have enough to go buy a DD for cash. my 02

I just don't have room for a 3rd vehicle (Condo association prohibits it.)

Anyone else have a problem with the harnesses being attached to a "style" bar!?!

What could possibly be more practical than a turbo Miata?

They arn't actually attached to the style bar, just looped across for more resistance. They are actually bolted to the frame behind the seats in and around the original seatbelt bolt ins. If you would look at the picture you could see that they still go somewhere.

It would still compress/bend that style bar in a collision, I would never run that much power without a real bar or cage. Probably would do more harm than good in an accident the way you have it.

And $8500 with no Torsen sounds a bit high.
