Ultimate Turbo Mazda MP3 for Sale

Car was sold as of 10/8/08

One thing has led to another and I'm looking at switching classes for auto-x that I'm doing as well as to do a few other fun things (replace my truck with a newer one and get a trailer for my cars). So I'm looking at parting with my MP3 if the price and the like is right.

For those that don't know it, my car is a bit of a piece of history in some ways (the first owner, Terry, was the first to turbo a 3rd Gen/MP3), and is one of the most powerful cars on the board. I'll post dyno sheets and tons of pictures.. but here is the short version (I'll update/correct details over the next day or so):

2001 Mazda MP3 #1026
Sunburst Yellow
Current Mileage on 10/1/07 was 42096, about 13K on motor.
306 whp at 16 psi.
Asking: 10,950 FIRM
Can arrange shipping anywhere in US at additional charge/part of deal.

This is the majority of the mods list, I've put in about ~25-30K over the last 3 years on top of buying the car. The motor build alone was over 12K because of the extent of the work done on it. The car is "adult driven" in that I have never been rough with it, hit anything with it, overrevved it, drag raced it or anything else that would be detrimental to the car. As I stated in the next post it has a couple of autocross seasons on it, but I'm not a hard launcher (not worth it in these cars) and I have maintained it heavily to ensure nothing wears or breaks or is any way less than perfect.

Also: link to more on the build of the motor:

Re: Ultimate Turbo Mazda MP3 for Sale

he car is daily driveable. It can be a little finicky in some cold weather (take 2 cranks to get it to catch and hold because of the way it is set up right now) but I'm updating the tune to remedy that. The only other "bad" thing about it as daily driver is that it doesn't have AC as part of the modifications to allow the larger exhaust and so forth on the car. Otherwise, the car gets about 28 mpg on the highway and about 20 in the city and about 6-8 on the race track under full loads.

Other than that, it's fully functional and in great shape. Extremely reliable and very well taken care of. The condition in person is amazing, extremely glossy paint and overall near flawless. There are 2 dents that are "noticeable" and about 3-4 nearly invisible door dings and about 5-6 minor scratches in the paint (all under about .5" long)

The interior is in great shape, and everyone loves the two racing seats that are on sliders and are reclineable.

This car has almost every possible thing done to it. The only few things that I haven't done that I had contemplated are:
Forged Transmission Gears
Water Injection
GT SPEC Suspension Bracing

Those few things could be used to push the car up to 400 horsepower safely and without issue... just something I haven't spent the time to do. This is truly the ultimate in a modified car and one that has a proven history and reliability.

The car has been raced for 3 autocross seasons of about 7 races a season. I raced it in one high speed event prior to the motor blowing and then being rebuilt with a new block and all the forged goodies and P&P and the like that you can imagine.

I wish you luck steve. I can vouge for him and let me tell you if he built and drove this car or had anything to do with it then it is absolutely a once in a lifetime opportunity to own. He is one of the most valuable people we have in our modding community.
