Default 94 LS1 Miata on NoRotors - $12,500

http://www.norotors.com/index.php?topic=12708.0

Not mine...but I kinda wish it was

Thought someone here might be interested.

94 LS1 Miata

The chassis now has around 94,000 miles and originally was an automatic M-edition Miata. The underside is very clean and is without damage or rust. The body is rust free but has door dings and scratches from the previous owner.
I spent almost two years performing the conversion and I am getting a new project soon and need to make room. Bossfrog Mounts were used for the subframe and transmission. The Flyin` Miata mount and axles were used for the differential. All of the suspension bushings were replaced with Energy suspension bushings along with new eccentric bolts. Flyin` Miata V-Maxx coilovers, a solid Racing Beat front sway bar and a freshly rebuilt manual rack give for a great ride and feedback from the car.
Car is easy to drive and is quiet at idle and while cruising. Every aspect of the mechanics of this car has been replaced or refreshed. I wanted the car to be worthy of road trips and nice for summer days without the worry of break downs, So all new parts were used for waterpump, alt, maf etc.. Has no leaks or issues and is truely a turn key summer car at this point.

Looks pretty clean. Price is low enough to be questionable...makes me wonder what's wrong with the car.

Wheres he located?

12,500 sounds like a steal. Though a part of me would kinda miss the process of building one from scratch.

End of the season and he probably actually wants to sell it. People expect to pay pennies for supercar performance with these cars.

Bossfrog mounts, CTS diff, C3Ms, and stock brakes. Makes you wonder what else he cheaped out on.

Where is it??? actually rather tempting...although the last ls1 NA car for sale around we saw went for 10k or less and included an extra mint body.

EDIT: nevermind...NY plates

What's "cheap" about the CTS diff? No cheaper or worse than the 7.5 or 8.8. Many of us are running it as is FM.

Aside from the mounts, the wheels can be sold and upgraded to 6ULs and the brakes can be upgraded to sports. After selling the wheels you're looking at what, $700 to upgrade both?

He cheaped out on the price at $12500.

Rat's nest? We must be looking at different pics. When you add 4 more cylinders you get 8 more wires. The PCM/ECU is mounted under the hood so you can remove the whole harness and tuck it if you like.
