SOLD AS OF 11/29/17

This has been a super fun build, but I think it's time to let it go.

It runs and drives great, with a very solid motor and trans. I don't drive it often, but I'm sure it could be a daily driver if someone wanted it to be. Drive it to the track, track it/drift it, and drive it home.
Quick cell phone video:


Engine:
5.0 from a 94 mustang
GT40 heads
GT40 intake manifold
Edelbrock Throttle Body
Scorpion Rocker Arms
Bigger Cam (unknown to me)
Tuned ECU
Hedman Headers
Exhaust has a small muffler, then dumps right before the rear end (sounds amazing!)
~30,000mi on motor rebuild

Transmission:
T5Z 5 speed manual transmission (different 1st and 5th gear for better drivability, and stronger gears)
Hurst Short Throw Shifter
New Exedy Clutch
New Flywheel
<500mi on build

Suspension:
Ground Control Coilovers

Cooling:
big aluminum griffin radiator
Large Dual Fans from a Ford Contour (a popular option, they work really well)

Pro's:
-Car runs and drives great.

-Fires up on first start with no problems

-Countless hours in getting everything dialed in and working well.

-Many custom parts (clutch master cylinder adapter, radiator support, trans mount, motor mounts slave cyl., intake elbow adapter, etc.)

-Hard top

-Boss Frog Double Hoop Roll Bar

Brand New fresh upholstered seats- they look great!

Power steering (that's a pro in my opinion!)

Cons:
-Currently on stock rear end. Hasn't been a problem, and I have a 8.8 with 3.27LSD that can go with it, figured I'd put it in if the stock ever gave out but it hasn't. Lots of guys run similar power on stock rear ends.

-No front sway bar- it hits the crank pulley so extensions need to be fabricated or purchased(they are sold for this purpose)

-Speedo is off enough I unplugged it. It would require the speedo gear changed that plugs into the trans, not a big deal but never did it. I use my gps on my phone (it sits perfectly in front of the speedo gauge). Might get it working if that's really important to the buyer.

-tachometer doesn't work well with the different voltage, so I use an aftermarket tach. You can adjust the stock tach potentiometer, but it'll never be perfect (though it can be 90%). I wanted 100% so put an aftermarket in.

-The hood setup isn't my favorite, but it works. The scoop helps clear the intake manifold, and also helps with engine cooling, but it's not as discrete as I would like. That's personal preference though. There's another hood I've wanted to switch to that doesn't use the scoop to clear the manifold, it's only $400, but I never ended up getting it.

-Paints ok, has a few dings.


I've tried to include any cons I can think of to give the future buyer full disclosure. As you can tell, those cons aren't a huge deal, and some are really just preference stuff.

All in all, a super fun build, that if it were to be replicated would cost much more than the money and sweat equity in it. It's sad to even post this, as I've had this car for almost 4 years and it's been a ton of fun.

Currently registered, though registration is up this month.
Clean title, pink slip in hand and in my name
Smog is buyers responsibility- but happy to discuss options for serious buyers.

I will answer any questions for SERIOUS buyers. It's a fun car, but please don't waste my time if you do not have the money.
No rides without cash in hand.
Not parting it out.

Asking $11000
email, call or text is fine. but please serious inquiries only
