So realistically i can probably take the intercooler and piping, bov, fuel pump, manifold and then sell/scrap the rest? I have another miata that i want to turbo so ill save up for a MS and do it right. Thanks for not bashing me too hard guys, just didn't know it was that bad until i got it to my garage.

Might have to pay someone to take this. Or trick some clubricer wannabe into paying you $20 for it.

Got this part right.

If nothing else, you can pull the turbo off and get $50. If you really sell all that stuff you can pick a couple hundred out of it.

That's rough dude. If you actually part this car out completely you'll get some money back. the body and suspension parts are worth something, though not all that much. If dash is good then good... door cards... tombstone... gauge hood...etc. if it's not all trashed already.

Yea sounds like a plan. Interior is decent, dash is all there, soft top is not sellable, wheels have newish tires on them so i should be able to sell those too

Also, tokico suspension? There's some other stuff, you should be able to get your money back out of it with some work.

Honestly man you should have taken a look under the hood and ran like the wind. No filter, crap all over the place, etc.

I swear I've seen this engine bay before and I was almost certain this was going to be a troll post by a troll account.

Please don't scrap the whole car. Body looks to be in pretty good condition. The Miata community needs as many good bodies as possible in circulation. If anything, sell it to someone that will take that car and turn it into something.

The radiator support issues are not that hard to fix.

Come to think of it, I do remember seeing this thing on CL. I could use a decent shell for the beater.

The only thing is, I don't have enough posts to pm. It would probably make a decent car with a new top and engine. Or a good shell.
