With regards to the QLD car, are you saying it is pretty good mechanically? Why did he move the car to this new body?
I'm a little over the box shape.................had a dab with the zed which open my eyes to other things. It's not that big a deal as the mrs has a decent newer car. That's why I haven't put it on carsales.
I'm not asking a cheap price either considering I've put in $12K roughly to get to where it is in mods/engineering/wiring/rego. That doesn't include what the body is worth (e.g 2-3K). You never get your mod money back but I'm after $9K...........if I never get that offer it'll continue to be modded because it'll be boring otherwise . With cams and an LSD there would be huge potential and HUGE stress fractures
For what it is I think it's fair as it's kinda neat and has done a 1:14:81 around wakie which is only 4 tenths off a MKVI on st tyres. I'm sure I can hit high 12's with it.
It takes a crap load of time to build a car so it's just a pain free way to an MKI .
Ppl might be worried that I track it but I tell ya if you've got a 9a or another 16V motor that hasn't been rebuilt I personally think it's at higher risk than a later model 2L ABF. .
or maybe an LS will never be worth that much despite the mods.
I've had a young bloke offer me $8K cash over the last week and I still didn't sell up...........just wanted to explain for anyone thinking about it out there
Ok as for the SC one your looking at, from memory it had issues with the SC bracket. As it's not a standard unit (from a toyota crown) it built up stress fractures or came loose......something like that. (Arno explain if your trolling this )
Number one rule with modded cars is that if the mod isn't a factory item expect complications or continual monitoring of the set up. e.g adding turbos or SC.
Combined experience from a group of friends who have done many engine conversions has come to this conclusion .
The green 4door had an awsesome body, we suspect that he changed it over just to have a 2door car.
