    wow, i was really into this car when it was 15k, and now its 10k!?!?!? if it had been that price last go round i totally would have scooped it up. bought a D1SC SN95 instead, but still want a turbo. If I could get rid of it quick enough i would be all over this

    Instead of making a new thread, I am going to bump this thread. Busta sold this car to me. The car runs great, but unfortunetly for me, other things havent been great, mainly two things.

    1.) my DD chevy blazers motor blew up.
    2.) I lost my job.

    With winter coming up in the few months, I had planned on doing a bunch of work to it, but now I just need a car to drive, and money. I will be looking for trades + cash or just a cash offer.

    The are a few different things from the original post.
    1.) It has brand new BFG 245's on the front and I just had an alignment done.
    2.) The front bumper has a new scuff on it on the passenger side. The bumper needed to be painted anyway.
    3.) The stock tranny finally gave out, well thrid gear anyway. It is still driveable if you choose to drive it away, just cant use third gear, but I wouldnt recommend it. It currently just sits and I start it everyday.
    4.) The car will come with a T-56 transmission with the bellhousing, on a crate. The T-56 has 40k miles and is out of an 03 cobra.

    We can work on an offer if you want the T-56 in the car ready to rock, but I just dont feel like putting in the work right now as I have to use my time to look for jobs, do work around the house, etc.


    Anyway, this is a great platform if someone has extra money to throw into it. I had planned for the T-56 and a set of 60 # injectors, and a retune with 14 lbs of boost.

    Its no surprise I got this car from busta for pretty cheap. So im not looking to keep this thing to extract mamimum dollars. But I am looking for a solid offer. This isnt a run of the mill 4.6...its a Turbocharged 03 shortblock with a T-56.
