Want an ND Miata with a little extra power? How do two extra cylinders sound?

Similar to our own V6-powered Miata, this ND is powered by a 3.6-liter LFX V6. The swap was completed by V8R Performance, the same people who also helped swap the LFX into our V6-powered Miata.

Per the seller, the engine has 48,000 miles on it (1750 miles since the build was completed), while the chassis has over 38,000 miles since new.

Find this LFX-powered 2016 Mazda ND Miata for sale from V8R Performance for $39,500.

Even has working air conditioning.  Considering new ND's from the dealership are now pushing $40k fully optioned, this strikes me as an absolute steal.  I'm not sure how an extra 200lb on the nose would affect handling though.

I doubt it's all over the nose. There is additional weight with the diff and transmission. I never noticed the additional weight in my LS3 NC. I doubt you would ever notice it in this. It looks like a quality build overall and doesn't look like they cut corners.

Exactly the conclusion I came to after a quick internet search of NDs for sale, as I first thought that $39,500 was a lot for the car.

Not intending this to be negative in any way - I'm really curious what corner weights are like on this car.

Super cool swap.

They call out Mace Cams in the build sheet 

It's probably these:

 Mace Cams

 

Looking at the build, it should be 300+ WHP build with all they added.

If I could register this in Ca I'd be all over it.

I have to wonder if my 6'2" old fart body would fit in this.......
