This is the car that I said I would keep forever. Life has different plans and unfortunately I have to sell it. I have had a lot of different cars and this one truly provides one of the best driving experiences. The car weighs 2600 pounds and it made 350/350 to the tire on a conservative tune and it was 102 degrees outside in the middle of July in Ogden Utah.
This car was swapped 5 years ago the engine and transmission is from a 2002 Chevrolet Camaro z28. its an all aluminum 5.7l V8 backed by a 6 speed manual trans. engine and trans when pulled had 42k miles. The car now has 52k miles.Engine: LS7 timing chain, LS7 lifters, competition cam (xr275hr) high lift-high rpm. Matching comp-behive valve springs. Recently upgraded cylinder heads 243 casting which is a higher compression head and effectively makes this motor the LS6 that came in the C5 Z06. Custom one off motor and trans mounts using 2 inch poly leaf spring bushings, dual speed ecu controlled fans (never ever gets hot) Smog legal edelbrock headers with carb label(this was done in california which is very hard to do, but I have removed the cats and no longer have the evap hooked up). 4inch intake with k&n reusable filter. Walbro 255 fuel pump with 3/8 aluminum line and braided fuel line.

Rear end: Custom 1 piece driveshaft, 373 medium case lsd from a 325is e30 with bigger flanges and axles.New axles last year, only replaced because one of the boots was looking worn.

Suspension: E36 M3 Megan Racing 32 way adjustable coilovers with custom pillow ball adjustable upper mounts. 96+ e36 m3 control arms with 95 m3 offset control arm bushings. e36 5 lug hubs. Rear subframe camber and toe posi-lock adjusters with poly subframe bushings. rear set to 2.5deg camber and front set to 1.0deg camber. All new front end tie rods, CABs, and new steering rack from an e46 which provides a great feel and quick response.Brakes: E36 M3 big brake upgrade with Ti rears, Abs delete, e34 540i dual diaphragm relocated brake booster. ATE race brake fluidWheels: Sought after and rare staggered 2 piece BBS style 42's. E36 fitment. 7.5inch fronts and 8.5inch rears
Body: 5 years ago Re-spray pulled all glass, hood, fenders, bumpers, and trim. retained original color. The paint is great condition, but has picked up a couple of dents, one on the hood and passenger side fender.Interior: Authentic Recaro SRD seats black cloth with red stitching. B&M short shifter with black leather shift knob from a 02 cobra mustang. All other interior is intact and factory. all gauges work. odometer was corrected to read the mileage of the engine that was transplantedExhaust: edelbrock shorty headers, 2.5 downpipes to x-pipe out to dual in dual out cross flow magnaflow.Link to some older pictures.
