clu does a thing and sets sail in a fortnight

Hi hello hola friends,

 

Some of y'all might remember my previous track car, a prepped NB. That car was a lot of fun and I learned a lot, from my first engine swap to a series of track days where I met a bunch of y'all. I recently moved from DFW to Houston for work and that caused me to re-evaluate my choice for track car. Since I wanted go to more events with NASA, that means more time driving to tracks around the state. So I needed something with a bit more road manners, more room on the interior to fit me a bit more comfortably, have similar running costs to my previous car. With my NB sold and my design brief set, I got to looking. And here's what I settled on.

A 2008 NC Miata with a 2.5 swap. I got this car on short notice when John Wagliardo put me onto the sale ad. Due to the short notice, I took a bus up to Dallas to purchase the car and drove it back down with my lovely SO. Car ran like a top and I cross 66k miles on the drive down. The engine has 28k miles.

 

While I'll miss my NB, I'm excited for the challenge of working on the NC. Here's my current plan for the car.

 

 

Brake pads and fluid

Replace the soft top, the current vinyl top has taped up holes on either side

Wheels and tires

Suspension

Full exhaust (PO completed the swap leaving stock 2.0 exhaust so it's a little restricted)

Safety equipment

 

Overall, I'm pretty pleased with the work done on the car by the previous owner and I'm excited to take it out on track. I'd appreciate any feedback y'all have on my plans and if you have any cast off parts, I'll give them a warm home and food. 

 


1999 Mazda Miata

24 November 2018 - 02:59 PM

Hoping to sell my 1999 Mazda Miata as is. Below is a list of things currently on the car.

145k Miles
64,000 Mile BP4W Engine
SD revalved Bilsteins with 550/350#
15x9 Advanti Storm S1
225-45/15 BFG Rival
Zerek Fabrication Double Diagonal Roll Bar and harness bar
Flyin' Miata front sway bar
Mazdaspeed rear sway bar
Track Dog Racing Endlinks
Stainless steel brake lines
Hawk HP+ Pads
ATE Typ200 fluid
Bauer extended lower ball joints
Mishimoto 52mm Radiator
Exhintake mod
Mazdaspeed Exhaust
4.3 Torsen
Redline fluids
Rotella T6 oil changes
Hardtop

The car will come with various spares including, pads, fuel filter, coil packs, stock wheels, and 2001+ header with EGR pipe and various other pieces that I'm sure I'm forgetting. Basically if I have it and it's for NA/NB you'll get it with the car.

I have documentation from my time of ownership, including receipts from the engine swap, alignments, oil analysis and shock dynos.

I'll be glad to answer any questions you have. I'd love to make a deal as I'm looking to move into a different chassis soon. Pass on the word!

 

Asking $5500
