S2000 Power: 1994 Mazda MX-5 Miata

The Mazda MX-5 is lauded for its excellent handling chassis and essential sports car credentials, but nobody is going to accuse it of being too fast in stock form. But today's example is far from stock -- don't worry it isn't one of those V8 swaps that ruins the weight distribution and is instead powered by the 9000 rpm screaming beast from a Honda S2000.  Find this 1994 Mazda MX-5 Miata here on eBay offered for $6,950 buy-it-now or make-offer located in Miami, FL.

From the seller:

If you like speed and performance then this is a car you do want in your driveway.  This car has an engine swap in it and it makes 200hp in a very small and light body but the fact that it is not the factory engine means that it has modifications and modifications require more maintenance than a factory complete car.  Soooo if you like modern day reliability and ease of use then this is not a car you want in your driveway.
Please don't be scared to bid, this was an engine swap performed by an ASE certified mechanic and was wired and inspected by a reputable S2000 performance shop so it works as it should and drives like a very fast Miata that is lighter in weight than a factory Miata or a v8 swapped Miata so bid with confidence and once again only bid if you want to follow through with purchasing the car.  Thank you in advance for viewing this listing......

1994 Mazda Miata M edition with S2000 motor and 6 speed transmission swap.

ready to race this one is fast and fun to drive
Runs excellent and is built for speed and drifting but holds the road exceptionally well.

Early S2000 motor, 6 speed transmission, computer, and instrument cluster, revs to 9000 rpms

4 wheel disc brakes, front slotted and vented, new brake pads
Drift emergency brake with lock button
4 corner adjustable suspension, could use tighter springs in the rear as the power can sink the rear a bit when heavy acceleration happens
Flowmaster exhaust and 2.5" exhaust tube throughout, creates very throaty, visceral tone
16" x 9"/10" staggered Avis racing wheels with new tires
Rear differential is welded to give full time posi traction
No air conditioning whatsoever
Newer convertible top, no tears
Roll bar in rear only
Front air dam lip

There is a paint scuff in the front fascia about 4" round, a scuff on the passenger door, and a 2" cut in the rear bumper fascia, otherwise paint is new in front clip and good all around.

Extremely fun and fast car to drive and own, please don't hesitate to call or text me, Andrew, at 786-355-4161 with any questions you might have.  Thank you for looking and there are two video links below to view.  Sorry I couldn't figure out how to make the tabs click so please cut and paste the links in youtube.  
Thanks again and happy bidding!!

See a better way to drive at 9000 rpm?


  1. There's a tired and obvious cliche here about a S2000 with a Miata engine in 3 ... 2 ... 1 ...

  2. "Rear differential is welded"

    Should give you an idea about the quality of this swap....

  3. I think the choice of wheels is terribly unfortunate.....
