Car description

This is a clean example of a 94 Mazda Miata, around 158k miles (will continue to go up.) It’s been built roughly to the limit of STS (the only thing lacking would be bushings,) and was largely a no expenses spared build at that.

Exterior is mostly clean with typical scratches and dents of a 24yr old car that’s been autocrossed heavily, but is clear of any fading which is typical of red Mazdas of the 90’s. Top is new as of earlier this year and is still in like-new condition. Interior is also clean with some tears in the drivers seat (typical for a Miata of this age.) The engine is in great shape and original to the car. Timing belt and water pump were replaced roughly 8,000 miles ago. I had the oil tested by Blackstone to determine how well it was holding up and will put a copy of the report on this ad. I’ve been running Amsoil XL 10W-40 for the last 15k miles, which seems to have been handling 8k rpm well.


  • JoeFis Racing Carbon Fiber Intake (Not currently on the car, but will be sold with it installed)
  • Racing Beat Header
  • Enthuza 100 Cell High-flow Cat
  • Racing Beat Race Exhaust
  • Megasquirt Standalone ECU (Tuned by Tony Szirka of UMS Tuning in Arizona)
  • Ohlins DFV Coilovers (Custom valved and rebuilt by Ohlins in February of this year)
  • Swift Springs 12K/8K (~700lb/in, 450lb/in)
  • ISC Front Sway Bar
  • Mazdaspeed Competition Motor Mounts
  • Open 4.10 Differential (No limited slip allowed for this car in the STS class)
  • Two Sets of wheels
    • 14×6 Mazda semi-hollow 7 spoke wheels with 185-60/14 General Altimax All Seasons
    • 15×7.5 Konig Hypergram with well-used 225-45/15 BFG Rival S 1.5 (Roughly 110 runs and under 1500 street miles)
  • Also included
    • Kenwood single din head unit (One of the best aftermarket radios I’ve used)
    • Rockford Fosgate speakers (Sounds excellent for a 2 channel system)
    • Kirkey seat (not installed)

Note: The tire rack that is pictured on this car is not included in the sale. I’d like to keep it for my next car. If you want one, they’re readily available through Garage Star and easy to install.

This is an easy to drive car, and a cheap way to get into a strong pax car that can also rival some cars in FTD at my local club. I’ve done very well with this car at regional events at ETR SCCA and CCR SCCA, as well as SCCA National Match Tour events. There’s no doubt in my mind that with a little bit more work and fine tuning, you could have a car that has a chance of winning the National Championship.
