If you are looking for turn key bad ass car this is it right here. The car made 760whp on 25psi with e85 and is currently on 29psi which would expect to be about 8-810whp. It is super reliable setup with the small bore long stroke bottom end, it could easily support more power with larger turbo or more boost. I've taken the car to rolling 1/4 mile event; It trapped 140mph with full tank of fuel, full weight, with cooler in the trunk over and over prior to the recent gearing upgrade. fully expect it trap at minimum 145mph now with the new gears as it eliminated the need to shift in 5th gear in 1/4 mile.
After many years of fun its time to move on. purchased this car in February 2014, with 151k on the chassis. Currently the the car has 153,4xx miles on the chassis and about 3400 on the motor. Miles will continue to rise as lately I've been commuting to work 100 miles round trip in it. This is really solid opportunity for somebody to own premium build that has had all the bugs worked out of it, just get in and go!
