Default 1994 FM built LS3 480 HP with 10k miles on build

For sale is an excellent example of a first gen 1994 LS3 Miata built by Flyin Miata. This Laguna Blue Metallic is one of only 2,228 produced. This year the car will also turn 25 years old and qualify to be registered as a historic vehicle. This car has the LS 376/480 6.2 Liter crate engine with the “Hot Cam”. Crank horsepower is 495 and torque is 473. Car only has 10k miles since the 2010 build and 183,000k on the odometer. Car has “0” issues, runs like stock Chevy.

In the link there are pictures provided by FM of the build, build invoice, build summary, Dyno Sheet, and current price for similar build by FM. The attached 11 page build invoice will answer all your questions about every nut and bolt that went into this build, no corners were cut! Note original pictures of car after build do not show louvers, Z07 intake, hardtop and real lip spoiler.

Upgrades since I purchased this car in 2016 are;

Speed density tune by Cartek Racing a well-known GM performance shop. Drivability was greatly improved at low speed and the power output is a very strong 400/400 at the wheels.

Changed out the hot side intake for the Z-07 cold air intake

Singular Motor Sports hood Louvers on newly painted hood

Miata hard top just painted to match

Rear Lip Spoiler

Build Highlights

LS3376/480 Gen IV

T56 6 Speed Transmission

Cadillac CTS limited slip with 3.42 final drive

Ceramic coated headers

Upgrade to Aluminum driveshaft

Stage 1 fan kit

Walbro 255 LPH Fuel Pump

Drivetrain, Suspension & Interior

TOYO Proxes R888 on 15x9 949 Racing 6UL Nickel 4x100mm 36 mm offset

4-Wheel big brake kit

V-Maxx stage 1 Coil overs

Frog Arms

Hard Dog Hard Core double diagonal roll bar with leather cover

Oil and Water temp gauges


Original stock seats with seat belts

Manual windows

Manual mirrors

Cold AC


Paint is pretty good, no rust, or major issues. Some small dings

Convertible top is only OK, but please don’t buy the car for the soft top…

Why am I selling? I’m 60 years old closing in on retirement, my second child starts college in one year, so two tuitions, and I have two other Miata projects. Will likely be selling my FM built 2.0 ethanol burning stroker with Garrett 3071 turbo, Level 10 built automatic with Hydra after this sells.

Car is located in Central New Jersey

Selling for $39,000

I am the previous owner of this car, and I'm the person who sent it to FM to be built in 2010. It was a VERY nice and fast car when I sold it to blubeast, and he has taken it to the next level. It would be really tough to find a nicer Laguna Blue example period, never mind with a full FM build!

This was a fantastic build when FM put it together, and it's only become better with the changes. If I weren't already so invested in the 1991 currently at V8R in Daytona, we'd be having a serious conversation.

That said, I'd spend the money for exposure on FM's site. It's pretty small change in the scheme of things, and they seem to have good luck selling better-quality builds there.

Best of luck, and beautiful car! -Matt
