Craigslist Find: LS6 V8 Swapped Mazda Miata Racecar

Test text.Ahh, Craigslist. Sometimes, you can find some really cool and rare stuff on there. But most of the time, you’ll have to look through a bunch of junk, repeat posts, and awkwardly-written spam ads first before you find something worthwhile.

While we were browsing Craigslist today, we came across a pretty good deal on a first generation Mazda Miata with a LS6 crate engine swapped into it, turned racecar. The seller is asking $25,000 – and with everything that’s been upgraded on this Miata, we gotta say, we definitely think the asking price is justified. We’ll drop some information from the ad below, and you can let us know in the comments section what you think.

  • Y-body style accessories: water pump, alternator, and tensioner
