If the chassis is sound, you can sell the tub to a spec guy for $100. No Miata needs to die in the propagation of this project.

Few questions on prices for my current car

How much for my engine with all accessories? 96 1.8L Motor has forged rods, new oil pump, water pump, gates blue T-belt, new valve seals w/ valve job, everything was worked over pretty good. Maybe 5k miles, just did a compression test and pumping 170+psi in all 4 cylinders

NA 5 speed transmission. checked and rebuilt what was needed, 5th gear syncro, other odd end bearings and clips. no grinds and shifts smooth.

Those are my 2 main questions, everything else I can come up with prices I just need to know drivetrain wise

I like the 2000SE with the NB2 bumper and headlights. Definitely go that route.

Car sold for a ridiculous price, far more than what I would have paid.

I am parting my car and waiting for a good deal on a NB!

Yeah, might have to lend Justin my car a couple of times a week so he can get a fix. Sad to be down to an old truck. But, at least his truck can bring me my (new to me) Torsen!

Having no boost drives me insane, literally I have the worst road rage now. Before I would zip on by traffic, now I bog and put put around town. Having that boost spoiled me, I need a new car, like NOW! I will be looking for a NB this weekend, hell, I could buy a MSM but I just built a forged 99 engine and don't want to mess with VVT

Rick, I may take you up on that offer. I apologize for the delays in delivering your torsen, but I have a good excuse!!! For once

Sad news is the car is gone to its new owner. I am sad to see it go... lets be honest, no im not. I still have a lot of parts left for it, maybe I can get that guy to buy them for a good deal? We'll see.

I had fun with this car but it's time for a nicer car that I can take pride in. So I am on the hunt this weekend for my next daily.

Here are the remains of what use to be my car. I got a pretty good deal on the car so I let it and all the suspension stuff go for a decent price, and whatever else I could throw in to get out of my hair. I solute you lil miata, we had some good times

Makes me sad.

I see that your custom roll bar/door bars went with it. Were they welded in?

Yes, to much of a hassle to take out!

Rick, are you available tomorrow after work? If so, give me a time frame and I will run that torsen by your house! I will be out in that area anyways, knock out 2 birds with 1 stone!

Oooohhhh! Clean, low-mileage 10AE. Nice.

I don't know anything about NB values, I'm just checking out what you're doing.

Add says "Vehicle comes with a 1.8L four cylinder engine with 140 horsepower." I'll bet you have other plans.

This has sold, unfortunately! It sparked my interest so I called and they said it has gone

Just looking for a good base price I should expect to pay, I am hoping between $6,300 and $7000 for a nice SE/10AE so I can get a torsen and 6 speed. I'd love to find a white NB, that way I can be cool like Vlad and Bryan!
