After long deliberation, I have decided that it is time for me to let my MKIII go. It has been a wonderful road and I will truly miss the car. I feel that anyone here who would seriously consider buying it already knows a good deal about this car. I will tell you something about it. First and foremost, it began life as a 1987 turbo hardtop auto car. I bought it in 2002 from a gentleman in Tampa, FL. Since that time I have spent a great deal of money and time to make it into what it is today. It is a total package car, completely built. It is capable of making 800whp and would also serve as a track car. If you were to ask me if this car is daily driveable, I would say that it could be in the sense that it would never leave you stranded. I have no idea what kind of gas mileage it gets, I merely drive it to relax and have a little fun after a hard day at work.

Here is the fun part... The car has a completely built 1.5JZ with mid size single upgrade and supporting mods for 800whp. The suspension is completely built to support anything from a daily drive to a full out road course. The brakes have been upgraded to stop the car repeatedly from 150+ mph. The car is a total package. The design philosophy behind my car was to make it appear stock from the outside but outperform a built MKIV in every aspect. I can assure you that this car does exactly that.

Mileage... I finished the engine work on the car a year ago this month. The funny thing is that since that time, I have driven the car a tad over 1,000 miles since that time. I completed the last round of modifications last month and I have driven the car about 1/2 a tank of gas. Sadly, I have only driven the car about 8,000 miles since I have owned it. The chassis has about 124,xxx miles on it however. The shortblock was built by Sunset Racecraft and the Head was ported/polished and built by Sunset Racecraft. Final assembly was completed by me. All new Toyota Gaskets and Seals were used, and new Toyota bolts were used where needed.

The car is far from perfect. It's not mint, but I've done my best over the past 5 years to make it as clean as I could. Personally, I enjoy driving this car more than any other I've ever owned.

Now the price. I will not let this car for a penny under $15,000. That might seem like a lot for a MKIII, but I'd like to say that I've spent just over $33,000 in parts that currently sit on the car, not counting the many previous iterrations of parts on the car. I do NOT need to sell the car, but I will sell it for $15,000 if a serious buyer steps up and would promise to take care of my car in the way I have.

I would like to say lastly that I will NOT take any offer less than $15,000 for my car and I will NOT entertain any trade. Cash only, sorry.

This car is 100% hand built by me over the past 5 years. I have numerous spare parts to go with the car. Everything I have goes with the sale. I am getting rid of everything.

Here are a few pictures for your delight:

In the pictures, the Euro Turns are not mounted as I just mounted these two days ago. Additionally, I have not mounted the new Toyota OEM front spoiler or the Shine Auto front Spoiler. The buyer can select which they would like and I will mount either. I have all new Toyota hardware to mount either, which cost me $180 alone.

Thank you for your interest. Again, my price is firm. No trades and no other offers accepted.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact me directly: [email protected]

Chris - thanks for your heads up. I'll be talking to you shortly.

Folks, this is a WONDERFUL car - it's faster than my TH400 car (on the freeway), and handles/rides like a MKIV with super-nice parts on it as far as suspension, brakes, bushings, etc... This is a car that will NOT DISAPPOINT!

Update!!! I took some interior shots since I thought people would want to see it. As you can see, the interior is VERY clean, perhaps an 8 out of 10. Also, you will be able to see my gauge cluster that houses the greddy 52mm v.2 gauges. I have oil temp, oil pressure, water temp. The pillar mounts 60mm silver peak-warning-hold boost and EGT.

Have a look:

The flash here picks up the details and you can see for yourself, the interior is very clean:

Also, note that is a new dash in the car. Tan is very hard to come by. Will provide years of service. I also have a tan cover for the dash to protect it for the non-show days.

I wanted to note the new Euro turns I installed since they were not in the original pictures:

Additionally, here is a motor shot taken about 1 hour ago. I just got back from a nice cruise:

In that picture you will notice the new Samco hoses installed along with a brand new AEM filter, proven to outflow the K&N's.

Lastly, just a few rear shots. I do drive this car from time to time. It gets very good gas mileage if you can keep your foot out of it! It's a little dirty in the shot, so I want to see that is a real car, not a trailer queen:

i dont know if i missed it but do you know what kind of numbers its putting down?

Going to find out on 30psi C16 very soon. It made 647whp at 23psi already however. I think with my current setup and 30 psi it will crack 800whp.
