    1991 Pit Crew Mazda Miata 1.8 swap JDM 95M seats, 93LE interior

    1991 Pit Crew Mazda Miata 1.8 swap JDM RARE
    Located in Austin, TX. Clear TX title, registered.
    NEW Trans/Clutch/Flywheel/RMS performed at Auto Specialists in Round Rock, TX
    ~122k mi

    This car sports the most iconic nose conversion made for the NA Miata, an extremely rare Pit Crew Racing front end imported from Japan. It's a definitely polarizing look - people either love it or hate it, but it sure is a conversation starter. The front end is $3100 alone plus $600 shipping from japan. There are only a handful of miata's in the USA (4 including this one, to my knowledge) with this front end conversion! This particular front end has been a part of two prominent builds in the US miata community.

    Planet Miata in PA performed the 1.8L swap with a 120k engine about 2k miles ago. They also performed a full wire tuck to clean up the typically cluttered miata engine bay. In addition, there are many rare and no longer available parts that I have added to this car. A little more love and this will be one unique, retro miata. Notable additions include a Hard Dog Stainless roll bar, Boig Header and Artech V-band 3" exhaust, Miataroadster short shifter kit, Trackspeed radiator, 93LE parts, new Nitto NT05 205/50/15's and everything marked new below. There was a transmission whine, so this was replaced entirely with a new clutch, flywheel, rear main seal by Auto Specialists (Miata specialist) in Round Rock, TX in Sept 2017.

    I had lots of plans for it, but I unfortunately have no place to work on it so it sadly has to go.

Built for high HP, high revving engines. 1 3/4x 31" primaries, merge collector into 7 degree divergent nozzle into 3" vband ring. Nitroplated. This header was designed for ~200+whp GT motors originally. I modified by replacing the 2" collector with the 7* divergent nozzle to 3" vband ring that are on it now. These haven't been available in ~10 years (new)
    Artech Custom 3" Vband exhaust with Magnaflow muffler, modified with flex pipe (new)

    Negs:
    The paint job is a 10 footer with small imperfections and cracks as shown in the gallery. Recently detailed.
    The front bumper has chips along the bottom with mounting bolts in place for a TRAP lip. Pictures of previous lip mounted in the gallery. These are about $250 shipped from Japan. small mounting hole from chrome bumpers on the side. I'd recommend repainting the front bumper if you want it nice.

    I personally think some decent DSLR pics would help the sale, imho. I'd be more than happy to take some for you(free or course because I am a amateur at best), we could set up a date/time. Hit me up if you are interested.
