           In Fall of 2007 I purchased myself  a 1989 Mazda MX6 GT. I love this vehicle, but as my funds are limited this project is a slow work in progress. The powertrain was rebuilt with 60k miles on it except the turbo which was never touched. Due to the previous owner using gasket maker instead of a true gasket. The stuff works somewhat, but I prefer using actual gaskets. My water pump went out 2 weeks after I had the car. Then turbo seal went out. So I decided to turn it into a project car and just get another set of wheels so I had reliable transportation. If your in to modify heavily it is best to get a 2nd set of wheels as down time may be more than what you expected. 

      The car comes with a SOHC 2.2L factory turbocharged with a IHI VJ11 turbocharger. I sadly was stuck with the automatic transmission. Which I really do not mind, but manual vehicles are fun to drive for me and being a FWD chassis. No need for the AT as this car may never see past the low 12s as traction is a issue. Just making this a fun car to take to the drag strip and AutoX.
