Guys if I could get better pictures I would
If I could get a close up picture of the engine belts and pulleys then I would


It's impossible to get any legitimate information from the seller; he knows less then my 10 year old son does about cars.


I have owned multiple Miata's and multiple turbo'd cars. If I had better pictures I could easily tell if the car had a/c, P/s. or whatever. Like I said it took me 24 hours to get 2 pictures from him. This is the best I can get outta the guy.


If the car wasn't 1,000 miles away from me I would have already gone there to look it over
It's pretty simple really: don't buy a car from 1,000 away from a seller that knows nothing, and so crappy that they can't send you pictures in a reasonable amount of time. It seems like there are enough red flags here to supply communist Russia.

Or

Take a huge risk and buy a car sight unseen and become a statistic.

In my opinion it all depends on the price and how much of a gambler you are.

For me, depending on the price I'm quite the gambler

So I bought the car, and I'm pretty sure I stole it for the amount of parts this thing has on it, will update in the coming days to figure out what parts are what. took me 2 days to get it back home and it didn't blow up so that is a start

Based on the pictures, it looks like an FM 2 or voodoo turno kit with the trackdog intercooler kit. It does not appear to have power steering or A/C. Better pictures, or better communication from the seller would be able to confirm this. Unless its a steal and/or you get more information, odds are you will be disappointed. If it appears too good to be true, it usually is. JMHO

Glad to hear it seems you are satisfied with your purchase.

Give me a few hours and I am going to take detailed pictures of everything and post the pictures here, I understand most of you are much more knowledgeable about boosted NA. Miata's than I am. I've only ever had turbo'd Honda's.


I know enough to say that amount of high $$$ parts on this car is incredible; it makes zero sense as to how this car ended up at a dealership as a trade vehicle.


I am excited and nervous as hell I'm not sure how big of a score or a let down I have here, but the motor and transmission "feel" healthy and the car did make an 11 hour drive without any issue or break downs so that gives me hope. The car's EXTREMELY stiff, and has many many rattles noise's and vibrations.


No power steering, no A/C, No power widows just a heater and radio. At one point this M-Edition Miata had all of those creature comfort, there all gone now. Very disappointing to me.


The steering wheel cannot raise and lower??? Is that normal? There is no adjustment on the steering column and the steering wheel is so low that is completely blocks the view of my gauges. Its not safe this way.


I'm going to take pictures of everything now. Thanks guys I'll return

The steering wheel is not adjustable. You can get an aftermarket one that is bigger or smaller to get around not being able to see the gauges.

Not to thread jack, but what OD would that piping be for the FMIC? I have to redo all of mine and would prefer running it this way instead of trying to cram it between the block and the rad.

2" pipe is what you want to use if going over the radiator. Makes life much simpler.

I am not a troll, I found this car online for sale bout a 700 mile drive away from me, I live in ohio. I drove all the way there in my dd. civic with a friend decided to buy the car on the spot basically for all the parts it had on it. Now that I have the car at home I can tear into it and see if I made a good purchase.
