I think the time has come to move on from my Exocet. I built it for a track car and while titled and road legal (and occasionally driven as such) - it really needs some changes to be a good road car if that's what you're looking for.

It weighs 1555lbs no driver and made 200whp on a very pessimistic Dyno. According to TrackDog it would make ~240whp with a 1.8.

Built 1.6 billet rods, double valve springs
Prather racing throttle body (no more broken throttle bodies)
949 racing coolant reroute
New coolant hoses and gaskets everywhere
Track dog racing Supercharger + mspnp2
Toyota COPs conversion
Flyin Miata happy meal stage 1 clutch and flywheel
Freshly built 3.6 ratio torsion diff
IRP short shifter

Flyin' Miata Fox coilovers
Paco motorsports camber locks on all 4 corners
Paco upper rear camber adjustable arms (adjust rear camber in 5 minutes, no touching alignment bolts)
V8R tubular lower rear control arms with heim joints
V8R Front tubular control arms w/ additional camber adjustment
V8R gen3 billet rear hubs
Willwood Front hubs
Rear 3 position bar
Front stock bar + Front RB tubular bar (depending on what you're doing, 5 minutes to swap)

Flyin' Miata LBBK front brakes
Stock rear brakes + racing pads
Proportioning valve with remote adjuster

Fuel Safe 8 gallon fuel cell
10x 13x8 Traklite wheels - though it needs tires.

This has been nothing but reliable for me, it never gets hot, it never acts up, and I've never been left stranded except that one time the throttle body cracked (hence the Prather TB). It uses pretty much 0 consumables and if you're brave on track has silly corner speed. It doesn't need anything but new tires to go drive on track, but it is a rough little track car (scratches and dings), built to be used and love every second of it - which it does! Exocet can fit some big people, but I'm a slimmer dude with short legs, so depending on height your first project might be moving the seat. This engine is good for a lot more power if you're interested in switching to a turbo, I just never wanted to deal with potential trans/rear-end issues. At this power level and weight pretty much nothing is stressed on the car. I can deliver.

I bet this thing is a blast! I have basically the same car but in a NA chassis and it's a riot and I can't imagine shaving off ~700lbs. GLWS!

It's a fun thing, that's for sure! I just want to get into w2w with my TT miata. Which involves caging it, K-swapping to be competitive etc - The Exocet has more or less sat this season other than some random upgrades. The budget says I can't keep it and do that so.... gotta go!

Looks well sorted and I can attest that they're a hoot to drive and incredibly easy on consumables.  Sold mine almost two years ago and I do miss it.  GLWTS.

Sent an email through the forum. Interested if it's still available. Have some questions re: title and smog.
