Yes My MK3 Is For Sale. Tons of Mods. 450 miles on built motor

Yes Believe It or not my mk3 is for sale. I spent the last 2 ½ years building the car and the motor. The entire motor and performance parts only have 450 miles on them, so everything you see is basically brand new. The engine runs immaculate, there are absolutely no problems with it. Ive owned this car for 4 years. Im am selling the car because I have slowly lost interest in it. Dont flame me but I plan on picking up a new Lexus IS in the near future, so unfortunately she needs to go. Even though I am selling the supra, I will still be here on the forums. The car just spends all its time in the garage and is barely driven. Car is tuned and holds a solid 11.5 a/f under WOT. It moves nicely at the 15 psi I have been running it at.




Car Specs

1990 turbo, targa, 5 spd.

Transmission: R154.

105k miles on the body and ONLY 450 miles on new motor and performance parts.

I am the second owner.

What needs attention:



The front bumper and whale tail are in black Gel Coat and will need paint. But look ok as they are. There is also a small rust spot on on of the rear quarter panels(pictured below). the blitz nurspec exhaust has a small ding on the muffler tip(pictured) Also I believe the front brake rotors are warped. ALso there are the common miscellaneous dings that you would find any 16 yeard old car. Besides those issues the car runs like a dream.

______________________________________


I have calculated a total of OVER $16,000 total invested including the $3,000 I originally bought the car for.DONT FORGET THE INCREDIBLE AMOUNT PERSONAL TIME AND LABOR I SPENT ON THIS CAR !! If I were to count that in it would be much higher.

I feel bad that I spent over 2 1/2 years building the car, and am now selling, but hopefully the car will go to a good home. Like I said all the performance parts including motor only have 450 miles on them. Everything was broken in properly, and there are a few people on these boards who have seen the car in person and that can vouge that this motor is in 100 percent working order. THe car does NOT even need tuning. My wideband is connected to the maftpro and the afr tracking is working flawlessly. I believe with the current setup the car should make about 500 whp at 21-22 psi. This motor can easily handle 600whp. I did not take any shortcuts building it.

PRICE - $9,000 FIRM.

I will NOT go lower in price. I have almost double that invested and everything is practically new. I think the price is more than fair, and if I could of bought this car 3 years ago for 9k I would of in a heartbeat. Serious prospective buyers can come over and take a test ride with me, and I would even be willing to do a compression and leakdown test in person to confirm the condition of this motor.

Car is located in Central New Jersey. If it does not sell within 4-8 weeks I will conduct a massive part out. PM me if you have any questions, thanks
