BaT Auction: Modified 1999 Mazda MX-5 Miata

This post was originally published on this site

This 1999 Mazda MX-5 was acquired by a customer of the seller’s shop nine years ago and has since been modified with a billet stroker kit, Flyin’ Miata turbocharger setup, fuel delivery and exhaust upgrades, blended fiberglass fender flares, AFCO coilovers, 3-piece CCW wheels, and more. This Miata shows 128k miles and is offered by the seller on behalf of its current owner with records from 2010, a 2013 dyno sheet, a Carfax report, and a clear Kansas title in the owner’s name.

The exterior was modified with wider fiberglass fender flares blended into the factory panels and finished in black paint. A new canvas soft top was also fitted.

Three-piece 16″x9″ CCW wheels are mounted with Toyo Proxes T1R tires sized 245/35 and date coded 2005 at all four corners. The car is lowered on AFCO double-adjustable coilovers, and the brakes have been upgraded with 4-piston Wilwood calipers and a proportioning valve.

The cabin features black leather seats with red stitching, a 3-spoke steering wheel, and an AutoMeter boost gauge from Flyin’ Miata. The seller reports that the stereo is not functional and floor mats are not included. Approximately 128k miles are shown on the odometer, 16k of which were added by the current owner.

  • Flyin’ Miata Hydra Nemesis Standalone ECU
  • RC Fuel Injection fuel rail, pump, and injectors
  • Oil cooler kit
  • Coolant reroute kit
  • Hard lines for water and oil
  • ATI crankshaft damper
  • Flyin’ Miata flywheel and clutch
  • Lower engine shield
  • 3″ stainless steel exhaust system

The car was custom-tuned by the seller and produced 295 horsepower with 233 lb-ft of torque during a 2013 dyno test as seen above.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual transmission, which was rebuilt with new synchronizers, shift forks, bearings, and a Quaife wide-ratio gear set. The chassis has been modified with a power plant frame stabilizer kit and butterfly unibody bracing.

The Carfax report shows five owners and a mileage inconsistency in June 2017. Service records from March 2010 to present are included, and an oil change was performed last fall. A walk-around and driving video is viewable below:
