Default LS6 Miata track car for sale on nasaforums

This looks sick. Amazing how small that V8 looks in a tidied up engine bay.

Well for us cheap miata owners, that's a big load of cash.

But seriously: its a ls6, rebuilt/built everything, tons of mods, done right, etc.....Not bad at all actually.

Considering FM makes you drop 20k + your car on their builds, 27 for a "ready to go sample" with tons of extra goodies is actually a deal.

It does strike me as odd that for all that, he did a Spec Miata suspension instead of something like Xidas or AFCOs.

When you bill 200 bucks an hour in labor, sure.

I realize this, but I challenge you to price out a build like this, even if you did it yourself just using those parts, and then try to poke fun of the prices these things are sold for. I have, and it gave me a reality check. Unless you consider your time completely and utterly worth nothing, it gets super spendy. Maybe not 27k spendy, but it will be well in the 20k range

I obviously wouldn't dump 27 on it either, just sayin.

Minus the black strips, black hardtop, and black flares I think that thing is badass. I would've painted it all one color though. But that's just me

Does the LS6 have the same oiling issues as the other LS motors?

Nice car. Still needs 4500 dollars worth of coilovers, though.

This car is amazing. Wouldn't it need some sort of reinforcement in the bay to handle the torque and what not though?

Wouldn't it need wheelie bars to keep the front end on the ground?
