Parting out my car, starting with the drivetrain and turbo kit.

RX7 Turbo 2 Drivetrain conversion- $2,900 OBO. Will include the following:
• RX7 Turbo 2 trans (rebuilt shifter, doesn’t grind/make noise in any gear. Bellhousing modified to fit around adapter plate and miata starter)
• custom 6061 aluminum adaptor plate (to bolt trans to engine)
• RX7 Turbo 2 trans crossmember (will need simple custom mounts to your transmission tunnel- either welded or bolted on. Mine are welded)
• racing beat poly transmission mounts for RX7 turbo 2 (bolt trans to OEM crossmember)
• custom clutch fork (to work with adapter plate)
• custom Miata/RX7 hybrid sprung 6 puck clutch from clutchnet
• driveshaft shop aluminum driveshaft
• spare shortened RX7 Turbo 2 driveshaft
• modified rear subframe powdercoated gray (RX7 diff bolts right in, eliminates the use of the PPF)
• custom RX7 Turbo 2 hubs modified to be 4x100 (uses stock rx7 turbo 2 wheel bearings)
• stock RX7 Turbo 2 axles (plenty strong and can be purchased anywhere
• rear big brake kit with 2 piece rotors (rotor hub bore was enlarged to fit over the RX7 hubs. Uses stock rear calipers with spacer brackets)
• RX7 Turbo 2 rear diff powdercoated chrome (rebuilt by a reputable race shop, cost me ~$2k, I have the receipt. All mazdaspeed components used for rebuild, lsd was stiffened up with a mazdaspeed competition clutch pack. Diff studs on the subframe were replaced/rewelded by the same shop. Also has mazdaspeed miata upper bushings)
• a pair of 6061 billet 10mm wheel spacers

I’ll throw in the front big brake kit for free (11” rotors and wildwood calipers so your brake bias will be OK with the rear big brake kit). I designed this system so that none of the wear items were custom- you can buy parts pretty much anywhere. This system eliminates the use of the PPF, and simple brackets will need to be made to adapt the RX7 TII trans. crossmember to the miata transmission tunnel. I can provide pictures of the brackets I made (they’re welded to the car). One of the strongest drivetrains you can have in a miata- basically unbreakable.

Built engine (~5,000 miles)- $3,500 OBO. Will include the following:

• Bored out to 1.92 L

Slight oil leak from one of the oil pan half-moon gaskets (leaves some drops in the garage overnight) which should be addressed before going back into the car. Engine made 300 whp and revs to 8500 RPM.
