    1991 BRG SE #225 - Flyin' Miata Turbo & More: $12,500

    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.
    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 SOLD Seperately. Daisy stockers are in good condition and have fresh BFG's mounted.
    *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.

    $12,500. 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.

    As of 1/1/18 the car is snowed-in. If you're local or visiting the Rangeley region, I'm happy to show the car, but my driveway is a bear and the lower garage has snow piled in front of it.

    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.

    Hayashi's would look good! The RS-8's have sold, they're in Florida now on a red NA. Car is currently on stock 14's.

    Currently in the process of swapping the wheel back to stock, then the Momo Cobra/Eunos wheel will be for sale to pay for either a V35, Prototipo or Monte Carlo for the '94R. Still undecided on that one.
