2006 NC LS3 conversion
Up for sale is my 2006 NC Miata with the V8 Roadsters LS3 conversion. Chassis number 3 out of 11 as one of the prototype cars for the current LS3 kit for NC Miatas. It was built by Steve Leonard from V8 Roadsters who developed the LSX kits for all 3 generations of Miatas. I’ve had the car for a little over a year and have done a tremendous amount of work to it. I had purchased it from a guy down in GA who had Steve build it for him for track days and time trial events. He had the car after it was built for about 4 or 5 months and was building a new house and decided to sell it. When I got the car it had 3400 miles since the build, currently it has a little over 11,000. This car played a big role in the development of the kit and especially chassis components. I used the car for SCCA and other local autocross events and due to the forces of auto crossing on slicks we found the weak links in the rear sub frame and differential braces.
The kit basically consists of a brand new LS3 crate motor, tubular front sub frame, GM Performance ECU, all electrical wiring and wiring harness, brand new Tremec T56 6 speed transmission, aluminum driveshaft, custom rear axle, diff and sub frame bracing and Ford 8.8 rear with LSD. And FM offers a slew of additional options with their kit.
This car has a tremendous amount of quality parts and labor involved with those upgrades to make it as AWESOME as it sits today. I am the type of person who does things right the first time and I appreciate quality parts and workmanship. In life you get what you pay for. I am going to list everything that has been done to the car and where it was either purchased and/or installed. I am not listing prices for each part or modification because I don’t want to make myself sick. Just to give you an idea there is probably somewhere in the neighborhood of 80-90K in the car included what I paid for it and upgrades.
The car is absolutely AWESOME. It has taken a bunch of FTD’s at local autocross events, and garners a ton of positive attention. Everywhere I go people come up to me and want to talk about the car. It looks mean as hell, sounds totally incredible and is a blast to drive. Also people always ask “how can that car hook up?” It’s a pretty silly question but that has to do with physics. The LS3 motor only weights 50 lbs more than the 2 liter motor that it came with. We have moved the battery to the trunk, and with the heavier rear diff the car still remains an almost perfect balance of 50.5% front and 49.5% rear. It’s basically a C6 Vette minus 800 lbs. Car weighs approx 2650-2700. Rolling stock are the R888’s for the street which are 100 tread wear super sticky tires. The only reason a car spins the rear tires are if the tires are being overwhelmed by weight. I own a 500 plus RWHP NA Miata that weighs 2100 lbs and it hooks perfect as well. I took the LS3 NC Miata out a couple weeks ago after not driving it for a couple months due to snow etc and I was literally giggling to myself and hooting and hollering like a cowboy… I always keep the car garaged and never drive it in rain, snow or salty roads. With that said it is also very smooth, it has a smooth ride than my 2012 Audi S4 if you could believe that. From a mechanical standpoint it is in tip top condition and it’s built so damn strong at this point that I highly doubt new owner will have any issues.
It is a 2006 so the paint isn’t perfect but still looks great. Its got a couple little scratches and dings. The car has AC but it is not connected at the moment but I have the V8 Roadsters AC connector part which will be included with sale. I believe car had about 130,000 miles on it prior to conversion. Essentially at this point there is nothing left of that car as the whole chassis is new, new shocks, springs, sub frames etc. So one can buy with confidence. And any serious buyer is welcome to have the car inspected and if they are local to come and drive the car. I have a ton of other photos available on request.
This is by no means a fire sale or any type of act of desperation on my part. I’ve got 6 cars, 3 of which are Miatas and I wanted a fun car with a back seat to take my kids around. The car is located on Oyster Bay NY about 30 miles outside NYC.
The car is in New York. Asking $42,995 OBO
Time capsule 1999 10th Anniversary
This is not the typical car to find on the Flyin' Miata site, we know that. But it's an interesting one. The owner of this 10AE recently passed away, and his car is now available. Note that we have not seen this car in person, nor do we have it at the Flyin' Miata shop. We have no financial interest in the car.
The car is completely stock. The battery has been replaced, but there have been no modifications. Apparently there are some small dings on the driver's door and we're not sure if those are the original tires or not. The car is garage kept and includes a cover. As far as we know, it has traveled only 500 miles since the current owner bought it in 2007.
38,916 miles. Includes the original Sapphire Blue hardtop with a cart and a storage cover. It also includes the commemorative box that includes his and hers 10AE Seiko watches, a Sapphire Blue Miata model and a matching kechain.
Asking $13,000 OBO as a complete package. Please don't ask about breaking up the bits such as the commemorative box or hardtop.
The car is in Illinois. Please contact Margie Miller.
After modifying, preparing and building assorted Mazdas for other people for nearly 30 years, and Miatas basically since they first came out, I decided to finally build one for myself, and incorporate all that I’d learned to make a fun and reliable car that would be enjoyable to drive on the street, but that could also be fast on the track….and tailored exactly to what I personally feel the Miata driving experience is all about. So while it’s not a turbo or supercharged rocket ship, it’s definitely fun, fast, and extremely sweet in all aspects. Anyone who knows me knows that I’m borderline obsessive with finding that perfect balance, and with this 1991 model named Rakuza (all my cars get names – feel free to ask the origin of this one) I feel that I’ve truly found it. Besides figuring prominently (right in front) of the Miatas At MRLS group photos, Rakuza is also mentioned (also with photos) in one of Keith Tanner’s books. Needless to say I’m looking for a good home, someone who will truly appreciate this car.
The car will be available for pickup after the conclusion of this Miatas at Mazda Raceway event (April 27-28). I will include doing a full post-track inspection of the car, plus service with fresh engine oil (Mobil 1), trans and diff oils (Redline).
Asking $15,000 for the whole package.
