Just bought a toy to compliment the GTI, NC Miata PRHT

Drag Race Newbie
2007 Miata Grand Touring PRHT 6MT with Premim and Suspension Pkg (for LSD).

64k miles, one owner, 29 CarFax Maintenance records from the local Mazda dealer.

Plans include: Coilovers, wider wheels, sticker tires, 2.5 Swap with some type of FI, full exhaust and Vitaloni Mirrors.

Shooting for 300-320 WHP, should be a hoot.

Already added a rear muffler and removed the pinstripe.

That's one of my favorite Miata generations. It does a great job bridging the gap between increased interior quality of later models with the precision and analog feel of the early models.

The design has stood the test of time, as well.

My thoughts exactly, I’ve had an NB before. My friend has had all generations, right now he has a NB, NC and a Fiata. So I am very familiar with them.

NC is still comfortable to drive and is not as cramped in the interior as the ND.

Its really the sweet spot.

Was looking at a 2013-2015 Club for $13k-$16k, then this popped up locally for $9k. 😎

Damn. That's a hell of a lot of car for that price.

Completely ignoring any valuation, just consider what you're able to buy on the used market today. It's really amazing what you can end up with.

Sure is.

RWD, <2,500lbs, 6MT and clean.

I really got this so I can tag along on my GF’s motorcycle rides. I refuse to get on one. 😂

I have gotten the GTI to its final state. This will be fun modding over the years.

I have 2010 soft top with a turbo, 230ish HP is a pretty good spot. Above that it is stretching the design limits. The trans on the NC1 has some weaknesses as well. It’s a good combo, as the GTI is a bit ponderous for the tight stuff.

Which turbo kit are you rocking?

Dynotronics is an hour away from me.

Nice choice! There seems to be several Miata owners around here on mk7. I have a 2.5 swapped NC and I'm in the process of doing a LFX engine swap on an NB.

Nice. Love the 2.5?
It's pretty decent. I bought the car with a blown up 2.0 so that's the primary reason for doing the swap. I know people are removing good running 2.0 to install the 2.5 but personally I don't think I'd go through the trouble or expense.

The early NC1 engines also have some weak points. It’s not a horrible option to get one of the 2.0s Joe has and boost it. The 2.0 is smoother and revs better. In order to install the 2.5, the balance shafts have to be removed.

Nice car! I had an NB until it spun ol' number 4. I was outside of the recall range, but Mazda still came to my rescue. I always liked the PRHT, don't see many of them down here.
