Default Trade: 90 turbo for newer Miata

Look at my sig for details, Im getting tired of the turbo and the race suspension on the street.
I just want a newer one 99 and up. Stock or mild mods.
I'm willing to drive.
My car is very clean and the turbo installation is neat and organized. I'm a neat freak...

Here are some pictures from last fall, it didnt have a turbo, godspeed rad or 15" wheels yet.
I removed the white stripes on the back of the car too, they only go to the edge of the trunk lid.

ANY TRADES are welcomed just tell me what you have

Interesting, I saw a supercharger on the pictures, does it come with it?
And why is the engine bay black in that pic? maybe its a different car.
Is the BMW yours?
If we trade I want to keep my suspension though, you can keep yours, and put stock suspension back in.

Well, I live in Indianapolis. Mine is a 1990. Red with white stripes.
-Used to race it in Autocross, won Indianapolis Region STS2 class in 2007.
-Took it to nationals and got 20 out of around 30 people but thats because I'm not a very good driver.

The car:
Paint is not bad, front bumper is a little faded.
No rust because I bought it in Alabama 2 years ago.
On the trip home the engine ate 2 quarts of oil, needed a new engine. I went to the junkard and got a 1990 engine with 93,000. Compression test is great at 180 on all cylinders, leak down test said 5-6 on each cylinder which is great too.
-The chassis has 126k and the engine has 109000 now.
-I put manual steering and removed the air conditioner.
-New belts, water pump, seals, when I installed the junkyard engine.
-New 1.6 brake calipers and Raybestos pads up front matched to Hawk HP+ in the back (only way to make braking balanced)
-Stainless steel brake lines
-New ball joints
-New engine undertray plastic (trimmed to fit Intercooler piping)
-1 year old top

Engine work:
-Fidanza 7lb flywheel
-Act clutch
-New clutch cylinder
-Begi S-turbo kit (GT2554r) ball bearing (Bought it new two months ago) Bellengineering.net
-FM 1 intercooler
-Forge BOV
-OBX machined underdrive pulley.
-Colder sparks

Cooling:
-Godspeed Alum. Radiator
-Fans wired in parallel
-185 thermostat

Exhaust:
-Begi diverted gases stainless steel downpipe
-2.5 to 3 exhaust with mandrel bends and Magnaflow muffler and 3 inch stainless tip.

Electronics:
-Megasquirt Plug and PLay from diyautotune.com
-Electronic Boost control (control boost from your laptop).
-No AFM, GM IAT sensor
-LC1 wideband with Digital gauge.
-Begi Boost gauge.

Suspension (I would like to keep the suspension and put back the stock suspension)
-Custom rear shock mounts.
-Mazdaspeed front shock mounts.
-Koni Yellows all around. (The front ones have race revalving)
-Ground Control coilovers, 800lbs in front and 500lbs in back (H&R springs)
-RB 15/16 hollow front sway bar

Wheels:
-15" black wheels (15lbs each)
-60-70% tread left on Hankook 195-60/15

The bad:
It still has the 1.6 VLSD and its making some noise, you will need to upgrade to a 1.8 diff.
I got hit and run and they broke the license plate panel. I put a new one in but the color is not a perfect match. I also put some ugly "Euro-taillights" on because one of the stock ones broke and I got the euro ones for free. But dont worry the car is not "ricer"


Let me know exactly what you have and I'll see if I like it. As I said I'll probably keep the suspension.
Please send me pictures too.

Thanks

Braian

I need it gone soon, there's an Impreza that I want.
How does $4500 sound?

800-f/500-r springs? Is there any softness in the suspension at all? Do you have any teeth left in your mouth after riding in that?
