Consider a subaru forester XT, it's a wolf in sheeps clothing.

You will never get out of it what you put into it. Rent a garage in Jersey and drive it on nice days.

that might be a tough sell. What does the paint look like, go tany pics. New york is a pretty inflated price market so if it looks good 8K might be possible but you would need to wait for the right buyer. average sale price would be in the 6K $ range given everything looks average and runs right. If you pulled a 300}+ whp dyno with it you might get abit more cool factor and then pull another enthusiast easier as it is your build remains unproven and most people cant fathom the power of a boosted miata compared to there normal car's

there's a certain point where no matter how much boost you throw at it, it won't make any more power. this can be in tuning, it can be in charge piping design, exhaust, or manifold..
