This car is back up for sale. I'm having too much fun with it and it's going to get me in trouble.
I've had the car for a while with intentions of fixing some of the things that the previous owner did along with his list of things he was going to fix. Before I get into that, we'll go over all the mods I can list off the top of my head... Powertrain Mods:
D1SC 8-rib supercharger pushing ~7psi peak
Custom charge piping and front mount intercooler setup (by C.A.R.S.
Custom tune by yours truly - went 11.5@122 at 3850lbs last year
LS6 valley pan/PCV upgrade
Dual valve springs
1 7/8 Kooks
Custom ypipe with 2x3" inlet to 1x3.5" outlet flowmaster merge collector (by C.A.R.S.
Mufflex 3.5" catback with cutout before axle
Custom fuel setup w/ twin pumps in-tank (by C.A.R.S.
Vac ref'd fuel pressure regulator
NGK TR6 plugs
!AIR / !EGR / !PCV (vented breather filters installed on both sides)
Remining parts of the engine are stock Drivetrain:
Twin disc clutch (drives like stock and grips like hell)
New hydraulics with adj master
T56 gone through by D&D - upgraded blocker rings, 3-4 shift fork, etc.
Bullet proof Dana S60 w/ TrueTac and 3.55 gears (backing plates need to be installed to correct ABS light - can do before sale)
18x9.5 C6 Z06 black wheels (not shown in pics below)
New tires up front and a set of OK tires in back (you're going to want drag radials - not the street tires that are on now) Suspension:
SLP spring/shock combo (IIRC)
Panhard rod (IIRC)
Track pack torque arm (IIRC)
Basically, the only thing left to do is the k-member and a-arms Interior:
Boost, fuel pressure, and tach guages
Head unit, amp, sat radio ready, speakers (have paper work for stereo equip)
!back seats & !all OEM seat belts (have in box to go with car) Known mechanical issues:
Knock sensor system needed replacing - this was done at the end of last year with a new harness, sensors, etc. (by C.A.R.S.
A/C line had a puncture somewhere - lines were replaced last year and system recharged, still needs investigation (thinking relay or seals)
Rear end was making noise - replaced Moser 12 bolt with Dana S60...problem solved.
**Have a spare PCM to go with - great if you do your own tuning or need remote tuning** Known cosmetic issues:
The previous owner was backed into in a parking lot by some idiot in a minivan. Bumper cover and passenger fender have a small crack & need replacing. You can see the crack in my 2nd post - the first exterior shot - just behind the headlight. I have new fender & bumper cover that needs prep, paint and install.
Reinstalled OEM yellow corners to fight a leak in the front right clear corner that was installed. Still leaks - was planning to silicone and permanently solve problem.
Rear passenger 1/4 panel has a light scratch/dent from same parking lot incident menitoned above. Not noticeable right away. Can't even see it in pics below. Straighten and paint with other parts & you're good to go.
AutoMeter tach may need service - only reads 1/2 RPMs sometimes. How I got here...
I bought the car with quite a longer list of issues to address (clutch slipping, running out of fuel pressure @ 5500rpm, etc.). I had CARS
do pretty much all of the work. They added the fuel system, clutch, hydraulics, custom intercooler/piping, injectors, full exhaust, drag radials, rear end, pushrods, and valve springs. The previous owner was still running the stock valve train and had a piston kiss a valve on the passenger head. This was discovered with a compression test. Head was removed, valve replaced, and put back together with the better springs. Fixing that and adding better headers netted 2mph and 2tenths in the 1/4. All in all, I've invested well over $7k in parts alone to get this car into much better mechanical shape. The car drives great and it runs like a top. Raced an '08 GXSR 600 earlier last year with an experienced 160lb rider....and he couldn't get in front of the car. Car doesn't see snow and has only seen rain only a handful of times ("ooops" situations). Odometer is around 57K.
Lots of OEM parts in the garage, too, if you want 'em, plus a set of slicks the previous owner gave me (28x16x10.5 w/ tubes on stock Z28 rims). Car sits in 48823 zip code. Looking for $16K OBO. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVuWFfJ8J8M http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2e3OHV9fURs
Please ignore the commentary - we were just having some fun.
The car can be seen at the 1:00 mark here (before the fixes I listed above were done) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amvmSX0NCOQ
1st pass - bogged out of the hole which killed the 60' and the run
2nd pass - made sure I didn't bog and spun the hell out of the slicks
