Default 5.0 V8 TURBO Miata (yes 5.0 Turbo)

$18,000 420whp
Posting this for a local guy who's not on the forum. I rode in this car today and just about peed my pants. I have a 5.0 NA Miata and this thing makes it look like its standing still.

This is the only 5.0 turbo I've ever seen/heard of. It makes all the right sounds and has all the right feels. Even comes with heated leather seats! Posting this for him, though I hope I never see it leave.

I just did some digging and sure enough, I found it. I must have missed it in the past, because I'be been on the site quite a bit and never seen a 5.0 turbo. Definitely a blast to ride in. After feeling 420whp I quite literally can't imagine guys pushing 500-600. It was insane as is.

Hey is this miata street legal, because in the craiglist ad it say it is not. If isn't I'm just wondering what kind of work would it take to make it street legal?

It's legal in many states, it just won't pass california CARB inspection stuff. Getting it to that point would cost thousands of dollars, many many hours, and drop you over 200hp. It's not going to be possible.
