    1991 BRG SE #225 - Flyin' Miata Turbo & More: $15,000

    1991 British Racing Green Special Edition #225 (of 4000). 5-speed manual, camel (tan) leather with all the options (power windows, cruise, headrest speakers, stainless door sills, Nardi wooden knob & handbrake, etc.). 56K 3-owner miles. Clean CarFax, NY Title (Maine won't issue past 20 years old).

    Substantial mechanical and cosmetic refresh completed the past two years:

    Flyin' Miata Stage 1 clutch & 10.3lb flywheel
    Clutch master cylinder, slave cylinder replaced, stainless braided line installed
    New belts, hoses, Gates Blue timing belt, new waterpump, all engine seals (Viton replacements where possible)
    4:30 Torsen from a 40K 2000 Miata (NB) installed w/ NB shafts. Redline in diff. carrier.
    Shifter Rebuild w/ all new OEM components. Redline in transmission & turret.
    4-wheel disk brake rebuild (New rotors, Hawk HPS pads, everything cleaned, inspected and lubricated).
    Stainless braided brake lines at all 4 corners.
    V8Roadsters fender braces
    FM Chassis Braces (Frame rails & Cannon rear subframe)
    DynaPad replacement for OE cockpit material.
    Blackbird Fabworx Single Diagonal Rollbar (SCCA Legal, 1.75" tubing with harness bar)
    Flyin' Miata Stage 2.5 Suspension: Tokico Illumina shocks/FM springs/optional tophats/front & rear swaybars
    Flyin' Miata FM2 turbo w/ Garrett 2554R, all stainless lines, iconel studs, manual boost control, etc, etc. (Every option FM sells)
    Begi coolant-reroute/OPL aluminum radiator
    Flyin' Miata complete 2.5" exhaust/Magnaflow High-Flow catalytic converter
    Polyurethane exhaust hangers
    Megasquirt MS2 PNP w/ DW700cc Injectors / Magnecore plug wires & new NGK plugs
    Innovate MTXL wideband 02 Sensor & Gauge / Speedhut Custom (matches OE gauges & lighting) Boost Gauge
    Synthetic fluids throughout, no expense spared.
    New BFGoodrich G-Force Super Sport tires on all 4 (Check TireRack reviews, excellent GT tires).
    New matching REAL leather on both seats, new leather shift & brake boots.
    Convertible top & plastic window are excellent, zipper and all.

    Car made 205whp (compared to a stock 95) on a DynoJet. Only the best parts used throughout. Hardly driven since most were installed.

    Why am I selling? I bought another one (a 1994 R in white) to repeat this exercise... and rather than swap parts I'd prefer to sell this one complete. My loss, your gain. Turnkey 200+hp that looks great and drives even better. I've had 3 Miatas, and this one is more enjoyable & a better drive than my previous 2004 Mazdaspeed (factory turbo) or my 2012 GT 2.0L 6-speed. It also makes more HP than either of those cars, and the turbo spool is instant from 3,000rpm onward.

    *Matching Hardtop available for $1200.
    *SSR RS Watanabe 14x6 et25 wheels available for an extra $1200 (OE w/ new tires described above included at no cost).
    *Mirrors have been removed since pictures, originals included.
    *Zoom Fuel Lid available for an extra $150.00
    *SEM Interior Finish Paint in Camel will be included to refresh dash pad and other items which have faded.
    *Tan Boot cover & full tonneau are included, and in great shape. Will need minor fitting due to rollbar.

    $15,000. Take a look at '91 SE sales on BaT, then add up the list of NEW parts above, heck, even just the FM parts, and I think my ask is fair, if not low.

    matthew.f.lambert@gmail for fastest response. I will be away beginning June 21st for 2+ months. My father and/or my wife may be able to complete the sale for me, but communication will be slow, please bear with me.

    Bump! Still available. As an added bonus, the JDM Eunos wheel and Daikei hub shown in pictures are included, since I didn't find time to put the stock airbag equipment back in before I left (also included, of course).

    Bump! Still available. I keep seeing people on the pointy board all excited about $9-10K '91BRG's, there's at least $7K worth of near-new parts here...

    I need new pictures of the seats. With time and heat, they've really tightened up.

    That said, end-of-summer price drop that I'll likely regret. $12500. That's a full $2500 off, putting this car almost $4K under the one that sold on BaT this spring, which didn't have a rollbar or any mention of chassis, rear-end, or suspension upgrades.

    Thanks Randy! I tried to "do it right" only cutting cost in a very few places (radiator from FM was silly money at the time, they're now less expensive).

    If there were a no-cost-to-me option to remove turbo parts and replace with OE from your 1993 LE, where I recouped a reasonable portion of my investment and could then sell the car as stock again (minus the slot in the metal to clear the turbo) I might actually consider it. I no longer have my OE exhaust, and they broke a stud removing the stock headers...

    It's honestly beginning to look like I'll have to keep/run it for another 50K and then sell, to justify my investment. I'm losing a pile of money at $12500.
