I am looking to sell my 2003 LS. I just do not have time to deal with the cooling issues – I know it is resolvable, but I’m not a good enough mechanic and don’t have any more patience.


I would prefer to sell it whole. It will not be parted right now. The price is less than what it is worth parted out, but I would rather just sell at once.  It has PA inspection through 9/17, however, if you purchase the car and are in PA I will renew before I sell. Feel free to text or email


2003 LS. Approx 120k on the car

Flyin miata FMII installed at about 90k 

Hydra controlled, has original ecu in the car (not connected)

FM down pipe connected to high flow cat and racing beat dual exhaust 

420cc injectors 

FM stage 1 clutch 

Hood louvers - hood is painted black with plasti-dip - can come right off 

Aftermarket stereo with Bluetooth

Oil and water temp gauge (switch between), boost and oil press gauges 


Boss frog dual hoop Maxx 

SuperMiata Crossflow Radiator - brand new 

Coolant reroute 

Oil filter relocation to front 

Led headlight bulbs (low beams - no modification to the lights)

Aftermarket tail lights 

Kyb agx shocks

Heated seats (pass is disconnected right now - driver's side is fine)

Potenza RE950s in decent shape.  The wheels are painted black with plasti-dip, so easily removable

Second gauge cluster – used for PA inspections



I will also throw in:

2 mazdaspeed motor mounts

DeatschWerks 100 Series 165 LPH fuel pump

Set of snow tires on separate aluminum wheels 


The good:

Tuned to 210rwhp, 196 ftlb

Ac works

Handles beautifully 



The bad:

Cooling issue - I have had issues with cooling for about 2 years. It doesn't overheat while driving or sitting. Will get to about 220 at 70-80mph for prolonged cruise. Drops quickly when slowing or stopped. I have not been able to figure this out - I am sure someone else can. 


Minor issues:

Minor oil leak from the relocation kit - I have to remove the adapter and put a better gasket in. Just haven't gotten around to it. 

Small hole in softtop in back

Small exhaust leak - I used clamps - welding would fix this 

Minor dings due to age 

Front bumper cover has a small crack in lower side (See pic)

Rear bumper cover was hit in garage - has a bandaid sticker on it.  (see pic)

Rust on driver rocker panel - have a side skirt kit to cover this that I can include (was planning on cutting it out and covering with the side skirts) 



Looking to get $9000.
