    1991 Pit Crew Mazda Miata 1.8 swap JDM RARE

    1991 Pit Crew Mazda Miata 1.8 swap JDM RARE
    Located in Austin, TX. Clear TX title, registered.

    120k mi

    $10000 obo

    This has the most iconic nose conversion made for the NA - an extremely rare Pit Crew Racing front end imported from Japan. It's a love or hate conversion, but it sure is a conversation starter. If you don't know - this front end is $3100 alone, plus $400 chrome bumpers, PLUS $600 shipping from japan... that's unpainted and uninstalled. There are only a handful of miata's in the USA (4 including this one, to my knowledge) with this front end conversion! If you are familiar with the 'miata scene', the nose came from the "Blue Potato" and this was previously Phillyb's "Pitcrewb". Planet Miata performed the 1.8L swap with a 120k engine, the body has ~120k on it. Theu also performed a wire tuck to clean up the typically cluttered miata engine bay. If you are familiar with Miata's, you'll know the cost/rarity/desirability of many of these parts and know that several of these are no longer available. A little more love and this will be one unique, retro miata.

    I have fixed *many* things on it since I have had ownership and have put on many parts that I've collected over owning 12+ miatas. I had lots of plans for it, but unfortunately I don't have extra parking space here and no longer have a place to work on it. 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, and everything marked new below...

Built for high HP, high revving engines. 1 3/4x 31" primaries, merge collector into 7 degree divergent nozzle into 3" vband ring. Nitroplated.

    The paint job is a 15 footer - the hardtop has typical chips around the edge. Needs a good clean.

    Start taking this to some Cars & Coffee shows in your area, I m sure you will get lots of people interested there as well, also maybe list on eBay or DuPont Registry, there is always someone looking for built car believe it or not.
