Default WTB: Built Turbo Miata in California

looking to purchase a miata that has a fully built engine and turbo setup that is done and ready to drive.
I am planning to purchase parts to have my motor fully built, but before that I'd like to see what options are available in California.

looking for NA or NB is fine, must be turbocharged of course and pushing more than 250whp and room for more.
megasquirt or equivalent ECU is a must. Billet oil pump, and forged rods are a must.

I sure hope so, I've been on the search for a little while and have reached the tipping point of buying a TSE shortblock with TSE turbo kit. If I can't find anything soon, I'm going to have my MSM built to handle 300whp reliably with those said parts.

Why not just do that? You already have the stronger axles and 6 speed.

And devil-you-know factor. And a learning experience.

The plan is to build the MSM, I have compiled a decent parts list that I need to buy to make this a one time deal only.
Aiming for reliable and fast, but if someone has a beast that they have contemplated selling I don't mind taking a look at it and possibly save a lot more money. Also having 2 turbo miatas is better than just one.

I want to take my time and not rush into things, the parts can be ordered quickly but again I would like to see what's out there and attempt to save money before having my motor built up.

Too bad you're in CA, I'm in NJ and getting ready to sell my 95. Built motor, and practically every upgrade you could ask for...Needs turbo/Mani/do and done

​​​​​​Would be in your posted budget, PM me if you want to try and work something out

Thanks for the offer but the distance is far too great. There is another member close by that area also looking for a built miata. Check the wtb section for his thread.
