    Mazda Mx5 2006 mk3

    Chassis on 86,300 miles, however this will rise as I'm still using the car occasionally

    Engine
    2.0 mzr closed deck alloy block
    Forged H beam rods rated at 800hp
    Arp rod bolts
    Cylinders had a fresh hone
    New Nc2 fully floating pistons
    Fresh King bearings
    Fresh oem mazda headbolts and headgasket
    Fresh set of genuine bosch ev14 injectors
    Schedule 10 twinscroll tube manifold
    Genuine mitsubishi evo 10 turbocharger
    Genuine tial wastegate vented back into downpipe
    Custom 3" turbo back exhaust
    With sports cat, it's actually fairly quiet, but wakes up when revved

    Engine went through a 700mile break-in process on miller's break-in oil

    It's done a further 600 miles since now run on 5w40 castrol Edge

    Oil and water have both stayed dead on max this whole time, very healthy engine

    It dyno'd at 300bhp and 270lb-ft I do have the print out, this was 12psi, boost cut is set to 14psi, very reliable power level!

    Drivetrain
    6 speed gearbox with fresh oil
    Competition stage 3 clutch
    Factory lsd with fresh oil

    Chassis
    Bc racing coilovers, not very old, all collars still adjust freely
    17x8 rota's wheels wrapped in falken tyres

    Body
    MK3.75 front end conversion, not a cheap conversion to do, this was at a cost of £1,000
    Few minor marks, however overall good condition
    When I purchased the car the underside was showing some signs of slight surface rust, affected areas were wire wheeled back to bare metal, then rust treated and re-under sealed
    Very solid shell which is unusual for these, no holes or welded areas

    In absolutely no rush to sell, happy to keep enjoying the car

    I'm advertising the car for £7,000 which I think is excellent value for money when you consider bbr charge £7,500 to turbocharge an MX5 to this power level, which doesn't include the car or even a forged engine

    I know it's a year old thread but do you eventually sold the car? I would be interested if it's still for sale. Cheers
