Miata budget build.. Go ahead que the homo, hairdresser, girl car jokes. You won't when it's finished..

Well it's been a while since I did a car build so decided it's time to do something on the cheap so I can have fun and my woman won't complain (as much)


Here she is she's a semi molested 95R miata.



Sadly the previous owner wanted turbo stuff so we pulled it all at his house


New fender it's a little rough but already rolled


So far I have 2500$ invested and I also get this to sweeten the deal..

Isn't that a girl's car? Pretty sure my wife's hair dresser drives one.

No fastback miata and eventually an ls swap but that's 25k down the road. And I would do a Catfish before Exocet

I do get parts from another car of his but I'm waiting on him to pull those parts. Ecu, radiator, exhaust.

Subbed. I've been sitting on mine for a year or so now, slowing doing critical repairs first. Fun stuff might start after the winter.

That will be my first step. Hoses, brakes and complete timing overhaul. ( belt, tensioners, waterpump, etc.


I work 3 days a week it's a full time job but I got stuck with the weekend shift which is 3 13hr days so this will be my weekend/play car.

I don't think I'm going to autocross as I have a life and don't want to race for 3 min and work for 8 hrs. So I think track days and spec miata might be in order before we make the jump to an LSX. Would like to build a 404 stroker out of an ls2 block.

You lost the whole value of that car when you let him take the turbo. So are you switching the ecu as well? How was the previous owner managing the car and turbo? What about now?

Finally got her running had to buy a new coil pack after figuring out the ecu fiasco and now she firing on all 4 cyl. Also explains why she wasn't making boost for previous owner turbo good just was only running on 2 cyl.
