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.



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
