This is a 2003 MazdaSpeed Protege, 110k miles. As you can see it is track ready. Only selling it because I'm dealing with family issues and I need the money. Car runs perfectly. National TTD champion with NASA. The car is fast, you just need to learn to drive it.

FEATURED IN THE MAY EDITION OF GRM! GO TO PAGE 100

Since I got it I put new front bearings (Mazda original parts, no cheap replacements), low mileage drive shafts and a passenger seat with 5 point harness. A few things were removed (fire bottle) and relocated, but I still have everything. The car is located in Cleveland, OH always kept in a garage.

I am asking $6,000. It is a very reasonable price considering the mods, current state and the extras you will receive:

  • 2 spare engine blocks
  • spare pistons, rods, water pump
  • splitter for the front
  • wing for the rear
  • original internals for the KSport coilovers (they were rebuilt due to wear and to match the new springs)
  • original KSport springs
  • extra spoiler and front grill
  • 2 sets of 15x8 ROTA slipstream wheels, each set has 225/45/15 Hoosier A6 mounted (80% and 90% left) - the car sits on a set of 16' wheels with old tires
  • 1 set of 215/45/17 Star Specs mounted on MSP wheels
  • extra hood
  • stock intercooler
  • other random parts

The only thing the car needs is 1 new wheel stud on the front right side (included with new lug nuts). Contact me for more pictures, video or questions. 440-804-4236 or pablo.chois@gmail.com
