Default Forced to stop turbo build project- Huge partout!!! MA

Hi guys, I have not been very active on the forums because I have been very busy at work. I tried hard to finish the build of my miata but I realized that right now I dont have time and I ran out of money. It kinda sucks because I was so close and I gathered all the best most expensive parts. I work 12+ hour days at my shop and when I am done I just dont have the strength to build the miata.

I am pretty sure I will be back at some point because I had lots of fun with my miata in its N/A form. Handling is great, cheap, reliable, and its just fun. I can only imagine how awesome it would have been turbo at 240rwhp.):

To make a long story short I would love to keep this project until I have time and more money but right now I need the space and money. I have to buy equipment, tools, and pay the bills.

The car is a black 5 speed 1992 miata with 140K miles and runs great, drove it all last year. It is a B package with all the options. I converted the tan leather interior to a 1996 black cloth interior but kept all the original parts. I also purchased a 1996 miata with TONS of mods it was red 5 speed with tons of mods, the owner purchased all the most expensive well known parts. I purchased the vehicle from him after he got into an accident and had no where to store it.
I will update this as I organize everything and take pictures. I have two cars worth of parts, fmII kit, exhaust, hydra, roll bars, tops, engines, torsen and this is just to name a few parts. I dont know the forum rules and I am not great with the prices ( please correct me if I am off and help me price stuff you are the experts but be fair please). Just figured this is the best place to sell all the parts to people who appriciate miata's.
Prices do not include shipping.


Top of the line Hard Dog roll bar for the 1992- $340

Same roll bar for the 1996 with padding and seat belt mounts brand new- $350

Fully rebuilt JIC coilover suspension with the new design for the rear to avoid cracking- $1200 it cost over 800 to rebuild.


1.8L motor with 60K boosted for 2k owner said it ran mint and only used synthetic oil- $500

Garrett 2560R turbo from FM will need a rebuild or the intake wheel replaced? 2000 miles on it- $450 could be rebuilt for under 500 in the cartridge exchange program.

FM turbo manifold for 1.8L, perfect 2000 miles on it-$320

FM Turbine outlet- $200

Almost new FM full turbo back exhaust with all the sensors and high flow cat over 1200 new not including shipping- $1000

rc 550cc injectors with clips perfect and pretty much brand new over 500 dollars new- $400

Hydra Nemesis programmable ECU pretty much new 2k miles tuned for the FMII kit installed in the 1996 miata- $1700

FM butterfly brace (upgrade)- $200

Racebeat solid front and rear sway bars- $190

ABS unit, computer, and master 2k on the whole system- $200

Torsen rear end with driveshaft and axles, on mounting point broken could be welded or swap the parts 60k on it- What is this worth?

If you need any other parts lmk I am parting out the 1992 and already have the 1996 in parted out with parts ready to ship. I have a full storage room with almost every single miata part, interior, body, you name is I probably have it. Thank you.

not sure sorry, but it sure makes a big difference. the car with the jic suspension, race beat bars, frame rails, butterfly, and frog arms was the best handling car I have ever been in. Believe me I have driven many high end cars but this was most fun and with the upgrades was still just as much as the set of tires I put on a ferrari last week lol.

I will post pictures asap. I believe it is the FAS? its not the brand new setup its the previous version. It was all sent to JIC and they rebuilt them as well as replaced the rear c.arm mounting point to the new design.

Guys both roll bars are hardcore M2, or atleast that is what I believe they call them. The roll bar on the 1992 is badass, it has both diagonal bars and it also has a horizontal on the bottom. I have not seen many, I remember it was over 500 shipped and all I did was install it and remove it.

Here is a picture of what it looks like.

The other bar is from the 1996 it also has the two diagonals but does not have the bottom horizontal bar.This one is cool because it looks like it has seat belt mounting tabs welded on. The 1996 does not need the horizontal bar because it has the factory bar, btw that is also for sale.

I also have the padding for sale. I think its like 40 or 50 bucks, I will let it go for cheap.

This 96 miata shows the roll bar from the 96

Those both look to be M1 bars, judging by the rear most cross brace. According to my conversation with harddog two weeks ago, the M2 does not have this so that the glass window can fold down.
The first one I would venture to say is the M1 HDHCDD.
Looks to be the same bar in the 1996.

In the first picture, the rear supports have a curve. I think that is a sign it's an M2. The price is awesome but I want an M1

edit: nvm, harley I think you're right. the hardtop version has a slight curve at the bottom

The 1996 bar was on the car when I purchased it, the car had a glass rear window and it fit perferct. Does that help anybody?

The 1992 still has the bar installed and I will take pictures, sorry for the confusion. I dont think these bars have those large curves on them, like I said they look the same the only difference is the horizontal bar on bottom. The roll bar out of the 1992 has a horizontal bar and the 1996 does not because the car has one from the factory.

I will post actual pics in a few hours when I free up.

Also isn't this a turbo site? no one wants turbo parts or tuning hardware? Exhaust I got a ton of stuff I would rather sell it to you guys than on ebay or craigslist.
