  • TW: 95 Miata

    I'm thinking about selling my Miata. I'm kind of fed up with it :(

    96,xxx on the chassis
    0 on the motor. Completely rebuilt head from Dover Machine, new stock equivalent rings, bearings, seals, etc.

    Turbo system blew the rings out on the stock motor so I was going to go NA until I had the time/money for a big power motor.

    As it sits right now the motor's bolted in the car and to the trans sitting on new motor mounts. No manifolds are on it. Needs an EGR blockoff plate for the intake mani, needs 2 exhaust studs. The MSD box needs to be taken out of the loop and the CAS wiring needs to be returned to stock. I've got everything to get it running, I just don't have the time/money for it right now.

    Stock air intake would need to be sourced.

    I've got 100% of the parts from the turbo system: BEGI FPR, MSD boost retard. It's an older BEGI kit with the Garret GT2554R that the PO converted to be a vent to atmosphere instead of a recirculating system. He said he picked the upgraded intercooler too.

    While I had the motor out I deleted the EGR system, removed the power steering and converted the rack to manual steering.

    The AC condensor had a leak in it and I removed it to replace it but never had the spare cash. If the condensor and dryer are replaced, the AC will work. Since the PS has been deleted, it'll just need an idler pulley bracket.

    Stock motor included.

    Also included is a Megasquirt ECU that the PO started to assemble with a V2 ECU. Wideband O2, boost solenoid, and I think it's got all of the parts for the fan control

    mods: Flyin Miata springs with KYB fully adjustable shocks, Flyin Miata 2.5" catback, Apexi afterrun timer

    how's $5K sound?

                Yep link works.

                EDIT: And...after looking at your pics I think 5k might be a tough sell.
                Selling a non running car for decent $$ is not easy.
                It might be advisable to sell the turbo setup and get the car drivable.
                Then sell it as a driver.

                  What do you think is fair? I can get it running. Not much work left to do, I've just been working 60+ hr weeks recently.

                        I agree. Good luck trying to sell a non-running car for $5k.

                          This would be true if the thread wasn't started with testing waters and ended with the question how does 5k sound .

                          The guy is looking for guidance on how much he can get for it. No one here is trying to hurt his sale.


                          I agree that 5k is high for non running car. Get it running properly and sell the turbo stuff separately and you will come out way ahead IMHO.

                            It's almost running. I put in a few hours last night and I just need the intake piping, to add oil, water and fire it up :)

                              Cool, that'll help the price quite a bit. Parting out the turbo kit on here and miataturbo.net shouldn't be too hard either.
