    SOLD SOLD SOLD!

    I picked this car up in September and maybe put 500 miles on it. Shortly after buying it my motor seized, and over $10k later I had a low mileage '04 Cobra shortblock installed with a ton of extra goodies. The car put down 505/456 rwhp/rwtq with a Jon Lund tune on 10.5psi and is a great driver. Very streetable, acts like a stock car with mufflers until the pedal hits the floor. Body and trans have about 123k miles on them. About 115k miles were N/A the car is very clean and I would rate the interior a 8/10 and the exterior an 7/10. The new motor now has a little over 1,000 miles on it :)

    Here is the mod list from the previous owner with edits as needed:

    Hellion 62mm Turbo System @ 10.5lbs - Jon Lund Tuned
    Hallman Pro Manual Boost Controller
    Lightning MAF
    255lph Walbro Fuel Pump
    39lb Injectors
    '04 Cobra shortblock 8:5.1 comp, freshly machined heads with valve job, brand new parts

    Brand new fan
    MSD Plug Wires

    Brembo Cross Drilled/slotted Rotors Front And Rear, fresh Hawk ceramic pads upfront
    Kenny Brown/goodridge Stainless Brake Lines
    Tokico Hp Struts/struts
    Upr Caster/camber Plates
    Upr K-member kit and A-arms
    Upr Coilovers w/ 350lb springs
    Eibach Sportline Lowering Springs in rear
    Steeda Adj. Rear Sway Bar
    RAM clutch rated @ 600rwhp
    03 Cobra flywheel
    Dynomax bullet mufflers dumped
    Steeda Firewall Adjuster
    Steeda Clutch Quadrant
    Smoked Headlights, foglights removed, brackets still in place

    3.31 Gears

    Interior:
    Autometer Phantom Boost Gauge w/ Steering Column mount
    Steeda Tri-ax Shifter
    2003 Anniversary Red Door Inserts
    Recaro Sportline Seats
    Alpine Headunit CDA-9813
    Alpine 5-channel MRV-F450 V12 series amplifier

    There is so much more in that I probably forgot to list. I guess all this car would really need to be a true street terror is a T-56 :burnout:

    Priced to sell at $15k. It was originally listed on Corral for $17k. I bought it in September '08 for $14k and have clearly put a ton into it. I'm just going to cut my losses because I can no longer afford the car and I just need to move it and get into something cheap that will take me A to B.

    Thanks for looking.

    Thanks bud. It's a sweet car I never thought I would be that guy who owns cars for less than a year tops before selling them lol. Too bad I don't have the luxury of saying "I got bored" more like "I got broke" haha.

    Just an FYI I will entertain any trades as long as I get some extra cash out of it on my end. Low mileage cars with little or no mods, coupes or verts doesn't matter to me. Just something I can drive even if it is slow compared to this car.

    *bump*

    Lots of views and a few offers... SVTP ftw.

    Just an FYI to those offering trades, I would definitely prefer a low mileage vert with minimal mods (bolt-ons) and some cash my way.

    Whoever gets this car is getting a helluva deal. Has so much room to grow w/ the forged motor and its pretty damn fast as it sits.

    Good luck T

    You cant replicate this for car for anywhere close to 14k..

    Its a hell of a price, built right and fast a hell. The sound of this car getting into boost is awsome. All you hear is a whooosh then a red blur going by.

    The built motor has next to no miles on it, rebuilt turbo, jon lund tune, new clutch and flywheel... You really cant go wrong..

    Thanks man. I completely forgot to mention that the turbo has just as many miles as the motor on it since being professionally rebuilt by the guys over at Tim's Turbos - Turbo Rebuilding !!

    Your car ain't too bad either :rockon:

    Sorry I lent my camera to a friend and he still hasn't gotten it back to me!! I have some old shots that the previous owner took that I can dig up.

    No thanks but I appreciate the offer.

    Feel free to PM me some details
