This 2006 Mazda MX-5 Miata was acquired by the seller in 2014 and subsequently modified with the installation of a GM-sourced 6.2-liter LS3 V8 mated to a Tremec six-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. The car has been refinished in Gun Metallic over black leather and cloth upholstery, and additional modifications include Wilwood brake components, DG Motorsports fender flares, a custom wiring harness, a power steering cooler, a Motec data logging dash, Flyin Miata FOX shocks, and a roll bar. This modified MX-5 is offered in Idaho with manufacturer’s literature, service records, a dyno report, spare parts, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Montana title in the seller’s business name.
Finished from the factory in Marble White, the car was reportedly refinished in Nissan’s Gun Metallic (KAD) during current ownership and features a retractable black soft top. Additional exterior details include integrated fog lights, louvered hood vents, DG Motorsports fender flares, “500” badging, and dual exhaust outlets. The seller states that the soft top was replaced during current ownership.
Gray 15″ WedsSport wheels wear 255/40 front and 245/40 rear Bridgestone Potenza tires that show 2014 date codes. Suspension modifications are said to include Flying Miata FOX shocks and underside bracing, competition sway bar links, and urethane bushings. Stopping power is provided by four-wheel disc brakes with Wilwood six-piston calipers up front and four-piston calipers in the rear.
The cockpit features seats trimmed in black leather with cloth inserts and “500” embroidered onto the headrests. Amenities include air conditioning, keyless entry, cruise control, power windows and locks, a Hard Dog roll bar, a titanium shift knob, and an AM/FM CD stereo system. The seller states that sound and heat dampening material has been applied to the floors.
The leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel frames an aftermarket Motec C127 dash display that features a digital tachometer, a GPS speedometer, data logging, programmable LEDs, track mapping, and additional sensors for brake pressure, steering angle, and throttle position. The digital odometer indicates under 2,600 miles, though total mileage is unknown.
The 6.2-liter LS3 was fitted during current ownership by Bagshaw Fabrication of Morresville, North Carolina. Features include an oil cooler mounted behind the front bumper, stainless steel headers, a custom radiator, a power steering cooler, an aftermarket chrome strut tower bar, and a custom wiring harness with an ECU that is mounted behind the passenger seat. The seller states that the emissions equipment has been removed, and an Optima battery has been installed in the trunk. An oil change was carried out in preparation for the sale
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a Tremec “Tranzilla” six-speed manual transmission and an American Axle-sourced limited-slip differential with a custom driveshaft and rear axles. A stainless steel exhaust system was installed during current ownership, and clutch components are said to include a Tick Performance-sourced LS7 clutch, flywheel, and throw-out bearing. Additional underbody photos are available in the gallery below.
Service records, manufacturer’s literature, a dyno report, a Racetech racing seat with a six-point harness, a Hard Dog roll bar extension, and an additional trunk lid with cutouts for roll bar bracing are included in the sale.
The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists history in Maryland, West Virginia, North Carolina, and Montana.
