I acquired the car, and I like it and all but not really my cup of beans.... I've got my eye on an other car, so I'm offering this one up for sale. Heres a short list about the car. Some of you say it at the AutoX on the 25th.

Location: Sutton, WV Year: 1992 Make: Mazda Model: MX-3 Engine: 2.2 Turbo (F2T) from '88 Mazda MX-6 GT Transmission: Manual 5 Speed (H-Series) Wheels: 3rd Gen RX-7 Twin Turbo 16"x8" Tires: 225/50/16 Nitto NT-450's Suspension: 5-Lug Swap from '88 MX-6 GT (non 4-wheel steering)

Ported & Polished Head, Garrett Hybrid Ballbearing Turbo, MSD-6AL Ignition with Boost Retard, 3" Downpipe, Ebay Front Mount Intercooler, TurboXS RFL Blowoff Valve, 2.5" Hard intercooler Piping, New Plugs, Wires, Cap Rotor, Brakes (front & Rear), New Right Rear Caliper, New Exhaust, Tenzo R Racing Seats, Bride Knockoff Shift Boot and Quick Release Steering Wheel

CLEAR TITLE in Hand

Needs Paint. I have reciepts for everything I've did to the car, currently tagged and driven. Excellent body (odometer reads 20,xxx miles) which I believe to be actual as the car is in great shape underneath, inside and out. Unknown mileage on engine but the guy I got it from is who built it and is VERY reputiable.

Consider Trades for X1/9, Corrado G60, XR4Ti, or other interesting somethings you don't see everyday that are in running condition.

email me for more info/pics.

Tom, you should buy it. Seriously. Really.

It would make life easier on me. I'm having a serious conundrum right now trying to figure out what to do. I can't just ADD another car, so one would have to go. The only one i "can" get rid of is the MX6, and i really can't decide if i would be able to swap an F2T MX6 for an F2T MX3.

Dan, how much boost is this thing pushing these days?

That's way too similar to my situation. The only "flexible" car in my fleet is the Turbo Miata, and I'm really trying to hold onto it. (SWMBO is ready to see it go away, my wallet agrees, but I'm not ready. Does that make her SWSBO?)

Seriously, good luck with the sale. I believe it's going to make a very nice car for somebody.

Dan, does the heat and all the little ancillaries work on this thing? (minus air conditioning i assume)

Yes, everything works on it. LIghts, heat, and even PS (made a new PS hose and workin the air out that got sucked in). I've put a lil over 3K miles on it and no real issues to speak of.

Mine idles high because i've been too lazy to replace my coolant temp sensor on my throttle body. (Or just... you know... swap my other intake manifold over)

But i pull 20.5" at idle. (@ 1500rpms)

At normal idle, i'll see 19".

Basically, i see pretty far on both ends of the boost gauge.
