You should search around as this has been posted a million times. Most would say a 94. If you wanted a NB I would say a 99-00. Now go use google and the search function on this website and learn some ****

+1! If I had to do it again, I would go with a 94-early 95. It's a 1.8 but still OBD 1 so engine management is a little simpler and has the larger differential already. General consensus is the 99 head flows better also.

Post a meet and greet thread so you can introduce yourself and start reading the stickies.

Welcome aboard!

post another two-words-or-less post and i'm going to ban you for a week.



any year miata will need a built motor once you're talking high 200 rwhp. pick the model you like best and that is in your budget. otherwise it doesn't matter. suspension and drivetrain stuff is virtually interchangable from 90-2004.

I'd say most of us here are somewhere between 2 and 300 horsepower.

Which is best depends on your goals and budget, and personal taste. More info is needed.
