You've got AIDS! Do you mind disclosing how much you paid?

That's it: all I got I can take pictures of whatever you guys want me to...................but at this point I'm all ears.


What does this car have? Very interested in the thick red bracing underneath the car is this a custom piece? It runs from the front to the back of the entire chassis.


What's the turbo kit and turbo? Is the turbo any good? big little medium size.?




Car needs work in the tuning department there is absolutely no denying that but overall she seems to be a very solid start to something great

This car is better than most the crap people put together on this site.

you bought a heavily modified car and youre crying about the m-edition bs? let me guess, you're over 60yo?

it has tien flex shocks, a rare coveted shock tower brace, a flyin miata turbo kit with a Track Dog Racing Intercooler, shitty LINK EMS, Flyin miata braces, hard dog roll bar with door bars, racing beat rusted sways w/endlinks, an oil cooler with remote filter, a poorly wired subwoofer.

I'd be very happy with this purchase.

It's a ladder brace. I'm not positive, but I think it's made by Adrenaline Racing.

Yeah, not bad at all (assuming you got it for a song).

Old(er) parts, but everything is decent quality.

btw those "forged RAVS monoblock" wheels are just konigs. not forged and not Rays lol

At $5k or less, this was a no brainer.

That's not really aids, it's just old. You've got an old FM2 kit with the Link EMS. It was a great system in its day and still works, though you'll have much better support if you switch to a Megasquirt or something similar. If you're going to learn to tune yourself, switch to MS. If you have someone close by who will tune your link for a reasonable sum, then sticking with your current Link setup isn't a terrible idea.

If neither of those are true, find a tuner you want to use nearby and buy the EMS they recommend, or buy MS and find someone who knows it.

The Turbo is a Garrett 2560, great turbo and perfect for the 1.8 Miata.

It really looks like you could do a coolant reroute, get it tuned, and take it to the track.

Brakes?

Thanks sir, that's exactly what it is just looked it up.


Also to the above rust comment I do agree the undercarriage could stand to be undercoated or given some attention but as for the body it is entirely rust free. An here in ohio the condition of the body and paint on a car this old is amazingly good. Most cars in this state develop body rust in less then 10 years. Based off this assumption I didn't think the underneath was to terrible.

Brakes are stock and to be honest they suck, the don't grab aggressively at all. they work but ehh. like stock.

Well hell I was really REALLY hoping the wheels were legit and not knockoff so I could sell them with the good sticky tires and make some of my money back. I'm not that crazy about the look of them. There okay but could be of more aggressive fitment.
