Feeler: 97 Miata (NASA TT5 / TT6)

Recommended Posts


If someone is seriously interetsted PM me, could possibly arrange delivery early November as I'm planning to road trip my way out to NOLA for #GRIDLIFE and then head home for Thanksgiving. 

My street parked SC400 got hit in driver quarter panel and I'm seriously considering going full send GLTC/ST4 racecar on it before simply giving up on it (or going hotboi widebody stance DD). I love both cars, but let's get real, SC400 racecar would be way cooler than the millionth miata build and oh baby those 4l v8 rumbles. I don't think I've left anything out, but if I think of it I'll update the thread. Here's the deets on the miata. I recently installed 9lives racing sturdyboi / splitter / air dam, so as far as NASA classing goes it's now in TT5 where it's woefully underpowered. Was planning on turbo to make power for GLTC/ST4. All it needs right now to slot right back into TT6 is an OEM front bumper and take the spoiler off the trunk. I haven't registered the car in California because I've been too lazy to find and install OEM exhaust manifold and bend the EGR pipe to fit from NA header to NB throttle body. In Texas emissions counties it's quite easy as you just need to swap back to OEM ECU / intake / o2 sensor / OBD-II cat, drive for 5 minutes, shut it off, drive for 5 minutes and all the monitors should be ready.
