it has 145,000 on the body, but a long nose crank engine was swapped in in 93, so it has about 120 or so on this engine.
It is in almost perfect shape... no rust... i can count the scratches on 1 hand, which is amazing for a 90. The interior is pretty much perfect as well.
The wheels look horrible in the pictures, but they are a lot better in person. I'm still trying to find some lighter ones..
and suspension mods:
KYB AGX adjustable shocks
tubular front swaybar
and eibach springs

Nice GTI, but now you have increased your coolness.

Let's have some more details on the car.

(when you get some miles under your belt, let us know how it compares. http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=2766761)

FM1 kit converted to FM2 with the Link ecu/pad, injectors, intercooler, and boost control solenoid.
2.5" exhaust
HardDog rollbar
kyb agx adjustable shocks
tubular front swaybar
eibach springs
brand new oem rotors/pads
greddy flex downpipe
new cat
No a/c
power windows
The last owner only had it for 6 months, and the one before that (original) was a mechanic....
probably a lot more stuff, just havnt found it all yet.

Must be fun to have a fast miata. I try to avoid straight roads.

Pretty cool that you got the car set up already. Roll bar, so it's track ready + the turbo to
peoples faces when you pass them.
I got my KYB's set at 4 out of 8 all the way around. So fun.
Nice tires, Toyo® Proxes T1-S?

Oh yeah, get that thing aligned! Makes a big difference in the way it handles. I finally got a proper alignment today, and I could feel the difference in the first mile!

There are only two things I don't like about that car.
- the wheels
- the jersey plates

I know, that front plate ruins the front end but what can you do?
A Miata on boost.....very nice. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

A turbo miata and a grand in your pocket? CAN you lose?
