I have for sale a 1990 Mazda Miata. It has 181,xxx Miles. Miles may go up to 182,xxx As I still drive it occasionally.

It is a driveable project. The main things It needs is a 1.8 diff, and a better tune. This car is capable of 250whp with that and bigger injectors and a boost controller (or different wastegate). Currently it is probably a bit under 200whp. Wastegate is set to 7psi but tapers up to 10psi at the top end.

Here is the rundown

Stock 1.6 drivetrain with a stage 3 clutch Just installed 7/30/19

New Clutch Slave/Master Cylinder. Full length Stainless steel clutch line

Single Diagonal Roll bar.

OMP bucket seat. (has seen better days) Sparco seat base mount.

I'd recommend bolting it to the floor. it sits really far forward.

Kenwood amp, head unit, and aftermarket speakers. Hasn’t worked since I got the car. Head Unit powers on, but some wires are loose and I am not an audio wiring expert.

12-13-18 New Gates Water pump, Timing Belt, and fuel hose front and back.

1-25-19 Wix Fuel Filter

Ddmworks radio surround

New catalytic converter. Just used to smog then taken off.

Innovate mtx-l Wideband gauge

Speeduino PNP ECU

Konig 15x7 Wheels with Toyo T1R tires put on 5-23-19

Alignment was also done on 5-23-19 and I have the spec sheet.

Comes with an ebay front lip and duck bill spoiler.

Mishimoto 2 core Radiator. Comes with 1 stock fan. Not the duals.

Tokico Illumina 5 way shocks and H&R race springs

BMW 733i Variable TPS

Toyota Tacoma 310cc Injectors

Kraken TD04 Kit with 2.5” downpipe. Td04 Turbo from a 03 wrx.

2.5” exhaust with glasspack muffler and a turndown under the trunk. I did this so I could add a muffler later if desired.

Front mount intercooler

Issues or things needing attention.

Still has a 1.6 diff and they are known to be weak. (hasn’t broken yet... surprisingly)

Ebay boost hose clamps like to pop off occasionally.

Tune is not the best.

Current throttle body IACV is blocked off due to being stuck open. I have a spare throttle body with IACV to include.

Comes with stock header and cat, but not catback.

Small rust along the windshield pillar

Surface surface rust under the brake booster. (can sand it down and metal is still good underneath.)

Paint has seen better days. Headlight covers and hood were stripped of paint by previous owner, so I decided to just rattle can the headlight covers black. Hood was also going to be rattle canned black, but I haven't gotten around to it. Paint is chipped on the fenders. I can sand the headlight covers back to metal if desired for the next owner.

Asking 3500 for it no top $4700 with hardtop $3700 and I'll source you a usable soft top. For another $500, you could have a 250whp miata by just getting the 1.8 diff, bigger injectors, and Tuning it. I can arrange to sell it without certain things. Not interested in parting out. Thanks.

Current photos of the car are quite dirty and with the interior apart. I have all of the interior pieces and they will be put back in in the coming days.

Title is in my name. Registration is current. Smog in hand.
