Coming to Pac HQ in a rather sad state as a no-goer with a Miata twin cam piston engine and home-job turbo upgrade sitting between the strut towers, this coupe is a real rags to riches story, like many of our ground-up builds are... Over the last 4 years the car has been painstakingly transformed into the absolute stunner you see here, including removal of that dirty piston engine & replacing it with a much more suiting, tried & tested FD 13BT/C4 combo. With the coupe already having so much charm about it, the only modifications carried out were the fitment of some mini tubs and stretching of the rear quarters & front guards to better accommodate the new colour-matched 19" OM Simmons - other that that, she's all pretty much factory with the addition of the Savanna front lip & tail lights, and of course the custom pear grey paintwork which suits the shape to a tea!

The driveline providing the motivation is one of our FD 13BT Street packages, matched up with a Garrett G42 turbo kit which is a match made in heaven for the street, especially with a paddle-shifter C4 transmission bolted on the back! Looking in the engine bay you'll no doubt notice all the usual additions, including the Premium Cooling Package & 4" Intercooler, 120A alternator & multi-rib pulley setup & Electric DBW Throttle, mounted to a factory FD top hat.

Hidden underneath is our FD E85 Fuel Rail & Injector package, the end-point the custom fuel system built for the car which includes our High-capacity Bolt-In Fuel tank with triple Walbro in-tank pumps & full Speedflow 550-series press-fit fittings & lines throughout. Running in-line we also have a Billet By Pac Filter, Flex Sensor & Turbosmart FPR2000 fuel reg.

Under the car is, as you'd imagine, is just as impressive with the before-mentioned C4 trans connected to a built 9-inch diff, running 35 spline billet axles & tru-trac setup. braking-wise, we have Wilwood 4-Piston setup at all four corners for impressive stopping power, while on the suspension side of things, there's adjustable BC Coilovers up front and re-set & strengthened leaf springs out the back with a set of KYB Shocks - The result is a car that not only performs well in the go department, but also stops & handles mountains above how Mazda ever envisioned these cars to, with crazy reliability to boot!

Open the doors to this machine and you're greeted to a scene more like something you'd see in the latest, multi-million dollar supercar release... We're talking several hides of high-grade leather draped over Recaro Sportster CS front seats, a custom-made rear bench and door trims, combined with the crazy-cool MoTeC C1212 digital display. Keen eyes will also spot the custom digital display replacing the factory center console gauges - including the analogue-look clock... Moving your eyes down you'll see the PCS trans-Control Key pad that works in unison with the paddle-shift setup hiding behind the Momo wheel, along with a button for the electric handbrake and power window switches... yes, it's 2023 and this bad boy has power windows!

There's much more we could tell you about this car & so many little details but we reckon it's better let the photos do the talking. We're so pumped to have been able to deliver yet another awesome machine to our customer, once again bringing their vision and dream to reality & then some!
