90% of the parts here were installed 2005 or newer. OEM parts listed have been installed 2005 or newer. Car dyno'd 380 RWHP, 380 RWTQ. This was done on low boost (15 PSI) on a Mustang Dyno. The common standard is 18-19 PSI (still pump gas) and using a Dynojet dyno. You should be able to put down at least 450WHP this way (cam gears were also untuned at the time). This car will make about 520-530 at the crank on pump.

The problems with this car are mainly aesthetic. With so many new parts, it's been problem-free, and the car has never been raced or tracked, or had anything but full 93 octane in it, either. It will continue to be a headache-free, leak-free car for the next owner. Front driver's headlight has tiny hairline cracks, which could be sanded out if taken to a headlight specialist, I've been told. Some dash panels are scratched up a bit. One of the wheel center caps is chipping its chrome. You could probably get this rechromed for about $30 at the most. Small chips on hood and left fender. The Carfax showed an accident in 2001, I believe. The last owner was given a minor hit in the LR fender. No frame damage, no mechanical damage, minimal body damage, but this panel was replaced. Just a fender-bender, completely clean title.

The new seats were installed today, and the single tan seat was only put in to drive the car a couple places while awaiting the seat brackets. The black seats are in now.

I am asking $30,000. I'm well aware this is high for a BPU. You're paying the premium for this car because it is VERY well-maintained and babied, has not been beaten on, has tons of new parts, including the parts that usually fail at high miles (seals, wheel bearings/hubs, targa seal, etc.), so it will be headache-free. Also because it is a FULL BPU, not just the typical Int/DP/Exh/FMIC you find on 90% of stock twin cars. There is at least $60K into this car, likely more, including the cost of the car itself.

Let me know if you have any questions. Now for the long maintenance and mod list:

ok how many miles on the chasis?
For what it's worth, I overestimated a bit. 84K and some change. The motor went in at exactly 74,280, so oil/plugs/filter was done last week.

As I listed in the ad, there was a fender bender in 2001 or so, which the Carfax should reveal. Only cosmetic damage, no frame or mechanical damage, and everything was repaired.
VIN added to cliffs.

May I ask why the motor was changed? I have a good friend who is intrested but he is not on the forums so he asked me to post? But at 74k miles what cause you to change the short block?

The last owner was dumb. He was on his second motor when I checked the compression to buy the car. The car was driveable and pulled hard, but the compression numbers were way low, so I had the motor replaced, and since I've had it, it's been properly broken in (oil/filet @ 250, 500, 1000, 2000, 0PSI, under 3500 RPMs, low throttle, varying revs for first 2K miles).

Also noteworthy: the last owner took the car to small-time shops, which is where the motor was installed. I also doubt he did a proper break-in.

:( I still think you're crazy for selling this. Guys I've seen this car in person a few times and these pictures don't do it justice. This car is beautiful and very very well taken care of. That "perfect car" of yours better start with an F and end with an I! LOL

Troux,

I have a few questions for a neighbor of mine who's looking for a MKIV TT 6MT, preferably BPU or stock. I can assure you he is a real deal buyer with cash in hand.

My questions are as follows:

1. What material did you use to construct the custom downpipe?

2. What is the internal diameter of the downpipe?

3. What material did you use to construct the custom exhaust? What is the internal diameter of your custom exhaust?

4. Some pics have the OEM exhaust tip and others have a different muffler. What muffler did you use for your custom exhaust?

5. Does your custom exhaust include any resonators?

6. Please confirm the mileage on your shortblock. Your ad says new, but later on you indicate it has 10K miles on the shortblock.

7. Was a new OEM headgasket installed with the new shortblock?

8. Did you conduct a leak down test at the same time you conducted a compression test? If so, what were the results? If not, would you be willing to do this at no cost to the buyer to close the sale of this vehicle?

9. What company is the manufacturer of your "aftermarket" radiator and why did you not go with an OEM radiator?

10. Do you have any pics of the scratched instrument binnacle panels you could post?

11. I assume your Philips HID kit is low beam. Can you tell me whether it is 4300K, 5000K or 6000K?

Thanks in advance for your time and attention to these matters. Your answers will help my friend decide whether or not he will take a serious run at your vehicle. Since I found my second RR MKIV in Florida, he's thinking about the possibility of striking paydirt twice on the other side of the country.

Ken.

8. From the pics posted, and the sunlight in the engine compartment, I cannot tell if the passenger's side VIN is present. Please confirm that it is.

Lengthy PM sent.

Also noteworthy, it was hard to time the flyby on the video posted because I kept spinning through the top of 3rd. Not bad for a BPU on 15 PSI. :p
