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.

Mazda Hazumi Concept shows up ahead of Geneva

Tue, 25 Feb 2014

Last week, Mazda officially teased its Geneva-bound Hazumi concept, showing little more than an aggressive headlamp design. But now, thanks to the magic of the Internet, another rendering of the Hazumi has appeared on the web, and, well, it's totes adorbs.
In Mazda's original release from last week, we were told that the name "Hazumi" means "spring up" or "bound" in Japanese, and is "particularly well-suited to a small car that appears to be bursting with energy." And now that we're getting a nearly full glimpse of the thing, we absolutely have to agree. The company's Kodo design language offers aggressive style in a cute little shape, and the usual raft of concept car-spec treatments (no mirrors, huge wheels, etc.) make it look even more comical and delightful.
Indeed, the Hazumi is understood to preview the next Mazda2 subcompact, and if this concept car points the way forward for Mazda's tiniest hatch, consider us totally geeked. Mazda is also set to debut its new 1.5-liter Skyactiv-D diesel engine at the Geneva Motor Show next week, and while the company hasn't confirmed if that powerplant will make its way into the next Mazda2, it sure makes sense, at least overseas. Stay tuned.

Mazda mulling furniture, designer goods in bid to command higher prices

Wed, 01 Oct 2014

Brands like Porsche and Ferrari make a mint every year by selling branded lifestyle goods like shoes, hats and even wilder items. Bugatti takes things to the extremes with things like its $84,000 belt buckle. These products not only make their respective companies some extra money, but they reaffirm their high-end design aspirations to wealthy buyers. However, the next firm possibly dipping its toe into this upscale pool is a bit more mass-market - Mazda.
That's right. The Japanese automaker best known among enthusiasts for its segment-defining Miata and rotary engines is considering its own line of luxury goods in the coming years called Mazda Design. The project is the brainchild of styling boss Ikuo Maeda, and according to Automotive News, he has backing from company CEO Masamichi Kogai. Although the green light isn't quite on yet, Maeda is already brainstorming. "Not only furniture, but I'd like to build a Mazda Design brand. That's my dream," he said to Automotive News.
The possible project is just one aspect of Mazda's move to become a near-premium brand. According to Automotive News, it wants to see higher transaction prices partially by offering more stylish design than its rivals. Launching a line of luxury goods is meant to communicate this new focus to customers.

Modded budget Mazda Miata takes on new Porsche Boxster in more challenges

Tue, 23 Sep 2014

Earlier this month, our friends across the pond at Auto Express released the first in a two-video series that would see them try and build up a second-generation Mazda MX-5 Miata that could best a standard Porsche Boxster around the track. While that first video detailed the mods to the MX-5 - a supercharger, some suspension upgrades and a new set of super-sticky rubber being chief among them - and set baseline lap times for the stock car, today, we have the results of the 5,000-pound ($8,200) upgrade job.
Of course, we aren't going to spoil those for you. You'll need to watch the full video, which recaps the upgrades before digging into a comparison of both straight-line-speed differences between the 2.7-liter Porsche Boxster and blown Miata, as well as their behavior and lap times on the track.
Take a look and let us know what you think in Comments.
