Default I dont know about this maita?

Looking for a turbo build. Just looking for the right miata. I came across this today. Im looking for a project but nothing to major. What do you guys think of this? To me it looks alright. Hard to tell tho.
looking to make about 180-200hp. The reason i dont want to big of a project is because i dont have to much time and dont want this thing to be sitting aroiund for year. Any thought?

Heres the link...

Dont even buy that for 500 if you dont have a lot of time. It hasnt been running in FOUR years. You are basically buying a shell.

Ditto. I bought a high milage na for $1600 and I've seen several people here get one for $1200. Hell a local high schooler bought a turd for $800, it leaks oil and the top is garbage but it seems to run ok.

If you're looking to go turbo I'd recommend getting a 94+. If I had known then, what I do now, that's what I would do...

Mechanically, I could probably get that running in a few days. But I would then spend months cleaning it. And it's still a red 1.6 after all that work.
