Default CA- LS3 swapped S2000

I realize this is an S2000 on a V8 Miata site..But if it's worth anything I also sold my 5.0 Miata here and have been on the forum for a few years. Mods, if it's not ok to post it here feel free to delete.

SMOGGED 6/29/18
01 s2000 with an LS3 and T56.
The ls3 came from a 2015 Camaro ss with 15k Miles as did the t56 6speed. The car is a blast to drive as you can imagine. Fires right up every time, 0 issues with the drivetrain. The car is plastidipped green, as the car when I received it was a mix of silver and black, and I wanted one single color. The good news with plastidip, like vinyl, if you don't like it, you can always just peel it off. It also protects paint that's underneath.

low mileage stock LS3 ~430hp (stock exhaust manifolds and catalytic converters)
low mileage t56 6 speed
Kit built from
shop built in Bay Area
ground control coilovers
J's Wide body kit
mishimoto radiator
big fans to keep everything cool
All gauges work like normal (just don't try and hit the 9k original redline )
Battery relocation kit to the trunk (better weight distribution)
Axle Spacers

There are a few little things, but nothing major.
-Plastidip isn't perfect- some drips here and there, and a small knick in it in a couple spots, but overall looks good.
-There's some scratches in the original paint too that are slightly visible under the plastidip.
-Could use tires before driven much (no surprise there)
-Headlight fitment is a little off- I'm guessing that had some issues with the wide body. Probably an easy fix.
-bulb out on passenger headlight
-Driver seat bolstering is worn
-Rear suspension squeaks a little- not sure why, maybe the shocks need rebuilding or maybe it's just dirt?
-Salvage title- previous owner said it's from a battery issue that caused a fire with the original engine, which is what caused him to do the swap. Never looked into it myself, but there's 0 evidence of any frame damage, and it makes sense.


Smogged 6/29/18- Unfortunately not BAR'd though
The car has the camaro ECU, stock cats, stock exhaust manifolds, and CEL works as normal, OBDII port works as normal.
Please SERIOUS BUYERS ONLY. Call or Text 805-674-2505 or email [email protected]
Asking $19,500 OBO
Willing to work with buyer on price especially if transport is required. I shipped my 5.0 Miata to Michigan for a reasonable amount.

I think that's about it. Overall a super fun and ridiculously crazy car. Much quicker than the 5.0 Miata I used to own.
