    12 Second, Well Sorted 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata FS

    My sad sob story in TL-DR format:

    Bought a house, was more than I wanted it to be, must sell a toy.

    My 2004 Mazdaspeed MX5 is the perfect car for pretty much everything except off-roading in Moab or carrying lumber. I daily this car and love every bit of it, but I need to cut something to make the mortgage comfortable.

    The Speed has been modified very tastefully and none of the factory shortcomings are present. The changes from stock are as follows:


    Chassis:
    91k miles but this chassis feels more solid than any NA or NB I have ever driven. It is TIGHT.
    Stock MS suspension with FM alignment. No crashing or underdamping from high miles, this car is extremely well controlled.
    Brake pads - Hawk HPS, they dust a bit in the front.
    Wheels - Varrstoen V3 15x8 ET25
    Tires - Falken RT615K with ~1500 miles, wear is like new
    COMPLETELY SPOTLESS UNDERSIDE (was a California car and never seen snow)


    Body:
    Brand new Mazdaspeed front bumper, lower lip and little side skirts just installed
    Titanium Gray paint in good shape, some blemishes on the trunk lid and rear bumper
    No paint chips on front end at all


    Interior:
    Roll Bar - Autopower 4 point
    Leather seats in good shape
    Audio - Kenwood CD player with SiriusXM radio tuner and Clearwater speakers
    FM boost gauge, volt meter and NGK AFX Wideband
    A bunch of rattletrap sound insulation


    Engine/Drivetrain:
    Flyin Miata Big Enchalada minus the ECU
    Blouch IHI Turbo upgrade with 19T compressor wheel (one of sixty something of these turbos made!)
    Magnacor plug wires and plugs
    NXS ceramic ball boost controller
    55mm Aluminum Radiator
    Thompson oil filter relocate
    Flyin Miata Stage 1 Airflow kit (fans and shroud)
    RC 550cc injectors
    Haltech Platinum Sport 1000 Standalone ECU
    Mazdacomp motor mounts
    Energy Suspension Diff mounts
    Flyin Miata Level 2 Clutch (rated for 353 ft/lbs)
    MSM Transmission freshly gone through, minor shift linkage parts and reverse blocking ring replaced.
    **3.63 gears! (should have been stock)
    New rear main seal and flywheel
    Delrin shifter bushing and rebuilt shifter
    and probably some other things I forgot about


    This is the fastest Miata I have ever driven and also the best riding NA/NB I have seen. I get about 25 mpg with mostly city driving and 30-32 mpg on the highway. Car is set at 14-15 psi currently and tuned for 93 octane. I can adjust the tune accordingly if 91 octane is preferred. It made 245hp/238tq at altitude on 1-2 psi less than it is tuned on now with a much more conservative spark map, so you can do the math. I would say it is good for about 250-260rwhp in its current state. Even with the final drive gears swapped to 3.63 it will spin the tires from a roll in second gear, it is definitely not your average Miata and should be treated accordingly.

    Overall the car is in really good shape and condition, someone will get a stellar example [of what some messaging can do to an MSM.

    I also took it to a track rental recently and ran a 12.76@106.55 MPH
    There is another couple of MPH in the trap on the big end if the emissions flaps are removed from the intake manifold but I have been waiting for the fabled skunk2 miata intake manifold to be released.

    Thanks, frankly surprised it hasn't sold yet when stock/stockish ones sell for $11-13k all summer long.
