All modification have <100mi: Haltech e6k, LT-1 custom-mounted TPS sensor, custom air and fuel sensors, staged fuel injection - 460/850cc injecters, begi fuelpressure regulator, edlebrock 255 fuel pump, t4 turbo, 45mm HKS wastegate, custom downpipe/ SS exhaust manifold, turbosmart BOV, custom V-mount air-air intercooler, custom welded piping, Koyo aluminum radiator, dual alternator pulley, short-throw shifter, clutch<100mi, Full Jap spec Bomex Body kit (1year backorder), re-amemiea side view mirrors, Koni 5 way adjustable shocks, drilled/slotted brake rotors, new brake pads, 4pt. roll cage (not welded in), voltec 18"x8''/18x9", good tires. 

MRD out of Portsmouth tuned this car to 250 whp at 5lbs of boost, capable of 10-14psi. Hits full boost around 2500rpm.

Interior has no carpet and only the driver's seat. Comes with Optima Red top battery that needs to be charged/changed. Aux gauges were stolen while at MRD (FP, coolant temp, oil temp, Boost, EGT). Coolant buzzer constantly runs. 

The car starts up and idles fine. The car drives fine. But because the coolant temperature sensor is not connected and the vmount intercooler hole is not cut out of the hood I cannot recommend driving the car long distance or daily until these issues are addressed. 

Clean title, I've owned this car since 2002, chasis has about 100,000mi. 

I love this car, I wanted a fast daily driver, but its a fast racecar! I dont have time or space to play with it anymore. *Not a daily driver--car is fast and loud, this would make a great wacky-wednesday, drift or SCCA project.*

I will demonstrate that the car starts and runs, car is sold as is and the buyer is responsible for moving it.

2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata first in-car observations

Sun, 07 Sep 2014 10:58:00 EST

We've had few days to digest the all-new 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata since the roadster was first revealed on Wednesday evening when we offered you our first impressions. Since that time, we've gone back and looked at the car a number of times in person here in California, and we've even seen it briefly run under its own power (okay, it was more of a saunter). What we didn't get the chance to do at the reveal, however, was sit inside the car. We've since been able to remedy that, and while we haven't been allowed to drive the new roadster, we do have some initial in-car impressions to share with you.
First, the location and feel of the major controls is quite excellent. The three-spoke steering wheel is an MX-5 specific item - it's not shared with any other Mazda. That's vital, because others would likely be too big in diameter or have the wrong rim thickness. The wheel's redundant controls seem to be well laid out and the airbag boss is very small. The column tilts, but unfortunately and somewhat inexplicably, it still doesn't telescope.
Pedals are well-spaced, and the six-speed manual has the same short throws and positive engagement that we've come to know and love.

Takashi Yamanouchi to retire as Mazda chairman

Mon, 12 May 2014 11:02:00 EST

Takashi Yamanouchi has been with Mazda for a long time. He signed on with the Japanese automaker in April 1967 - one month after graduating from Keio University - and rose through the ranks over the years. By 1996 he was named to the company's board of directors. In 2008 he was named president and CEO, an office he held until 2013, after which he handed over the day-to-day reins to Masamichi Kogai and took up the seat at the head of the board room to serve as the company's chairman. But now, after 47 years working for Mazda, Yamanouchi-san is retiring at the age of 69.
During his tenure as CEO and then as chairman, Yamanouchi was credited with growing Mazda's business despite unfavorable fluctuations in exchange rates, opening the company's first plant in Mexico, and spearheading the development of Mazda's Skyactiv technologies and Kodo design language.
In his place, current vice chairman Seita Kanai will take over as chairman. The changing of the guard will take place after the annual shareholders' meeting on June 24.

25th Anniversary Edition Mazda MX-5 Miata sells out in 10 minutes

Wed, 21 May 2014 08:45:00 EST

Looking to buy one of the limited-edition 25th Anniversary Mazda MX-5 Miata roadsters? Well, you're too late. According to Mazda, all 100 examples of the darling two-seater have sold out - and it only took 10 minutes.
On Tuesday, Mazda opened its pre-order site for the limited-run Miata, and had intended to keep the site running until May 31, or until 250 customers were registered, whichever came first. Just 10 minutes later, 250 people had signed up. Now, Mazda will contact those folks, and the first 100 that are verified will be given the opportunity to pre-order the unique MX-5. "Upon verification of purchase intent and transmission selection, the customer's information will then be forwarded to the dealership of their choosing to finalize the transaction," Mazda said in a press release.
The 2015 MX-5 Miata 25th Anniversary Edition models will arrive at dealers this summer, retailing for $32,205 with the six-speed manual, or $32,655 for those desiring the automatic transmission. Based on the PRHT (Power Retractable Hard Top) model, the limited-edition Miata adds Bilstein shocks, a Soul Red metallic paint job (the same found on the gorgeous Mazda6) with a contrasting black roof, gunmetal wheels and an off-white leather interior. Special badging will be found inside the car, and buyers will also be treated to a custom-crafted Tourneau watch and a display winder box.
