UP FOR SALE IS A 1993 MEGA MONSTER MIATA
Monster Motorsports #0002 Mega Monster Miata with only 4,900 miles.
This car has been in storage and always garage kept.
Monster Motorsports was a company back in the 90′s that did over 275 Monster Miata conversions, 130 of them being Mega Monster Miatas, turning a Mazda Miata MX-5 into a Monster! Technicians first tear down the Miata to the frame and reinforce it with custom fabricated engine and transmission mounts which are integrated with additional chassis reinforcements. The engine bay then becomes home for the supercharged 5-litre EFI Ford V8 engine. A K&N airfilter and a Kenne Bell polished Whipple supercharger provides 6.5 psi boost to lift power to 300kW at 4800 rpm and just under 490Nm of torque at 3200 rpm. The transmission is then replaced with the Ford T5 world class, smooth shifting, 5-speed manual transmission to take on the added horsepower.
The car is a 93′ Black/Black Mega Monster Miata. The “Mega” part means that in addition to the Ford 302 V8, there is a Kenne Bell Supercharger (polished, BTW) under the hood.
After the Miata had gone the conversion, this Mega Monster Miata was located in Southern California at the California Cars dealership in 1997. The car had 3,362 miles on it, and is Mega #2, purchased directly from the Monster Motorsports manufacture. Among with an inventory of Porsche 930 turbos, Ferarri 512BB Boxer and some other serious machinery in the showroom, a salesman at the time said “the car is pretty outrageous to drive.” “Floor it in second or third on the freeway and you’ll go sideways,” he said. At the time they were asking $39,000.
A car dealership owner out of San Jose ended up making the purchase and the car was stored for 8 years at one of dealership locations. In 2012, the owner passed away, and the car with 3,800 miles on the odometer, was taken out of storage and then sold by his son in law.
The car was taken to TPS MOTORSPORTS in San Jose, where they tuned the Mega Monster Miata after sitting in storage for that time. Some of the parts that were replaced included, Ford Racing High Flow Fuel Injectors, BBK Mass Airflow Sensors, Ford Idle Air Adjustment Block Spacer and Control Motor.
The car was recently shipped here to El Paso, Texas where I reside. It was transported by Plycar, who deals in fine automotive transportation. Shipped in a covered trailer then stored with its car cover while in the garage.
The car is in absolute pristine condition. It has new car matts, new JVC head unit, volt gauge, water and oil temp gauge, boost gauge, convertible canopy cover, car cover, fully adjustable suspension with Bilstein shocks.

The Mega Monster Miata definitely attracts the right attention and is in show car condition. Here is a video of the drive, and a few photos taken from the most recent drive from EP Cars and Coffee.
Here are a couple shots from the Cars and Coffee at Palo Alto, CA.
