Aye that looks like a good buy for the money! Hopefully it is just down to the turbo needing replacement...

Yeah...i ran it with turbo off for about 5 secs...started up made a racket. At worst its a massive parts haul.
I didnt realise an s special til home and looked at vin plate.
New to turbo mx5s but had plenty of turbod car over the years.
Owner said it had an ebay t28 onit...which seemed to me a big turbo...my 200sx had a t25 if memory serves me right flanges are the same...
He is dropping some bits off like the old turbo soft top bits and bobs in a week or 2 so prob have to wait til then to spec a turbo.
Mtech is literally 5 mins from my house so handy for mapping the me221.
Ive been bofi site this morning..ker ching!!

Today is tidy up and clean..where its been sat water in boot and passenger footwell. B4 purchase removed plate pulled carpet up and not got to ecu or loom...close mind!!
Ive retired my rx7fd from tracj duties and sold my Rx8 powered westfield as to valuable in £ and what that car means to me....
Ive got to finish an ep3 ive been prepping for track then onto mx5.

Yeah it seems so, looking forward to actually having some room and I'll probably look to buy projects people have lost interest in to get parts and whatnot, seems the best way to get good value for money!

Unsure but the turbo could be a T28 roller bearing as they weren't water cooled. I ran my old s13 at stage 3 nistune 305bhp with no turbo issues at all.

FYI - re. Skuzzle, he is currently shut and has made it very clear on is Facebook page that he won’t be reopening until the Coronavirus situation is over.
