      Up for sale is my project car, i have found one of my dream cars so this must go, all it needs is to be tuned (comes with a bunch of different sized jets) to get it road worthy. I also removed the stock radiator(it was leaking) to replace it with a mk1 radiator (with end tanks) and I havent installed it yet. I am back in school now and all my time is taken....

      Some info about the car:

      The car does run and will hold an idle but it is not driveable until it is properly tuned. Which is easily done with the wideband O2 sensor (installed).

      Mod list includes
      -Zero mile 1.8L PL motor, lightened intermediate shaft, balanced bottom end
      -Techtonics Tuning Stage 3 P&P head, high rev valve springs lightweight lifters
      -Custom reground 276 cams from Delta Camshaft
      -MSd 6a ignition box
      -MSD coil
      -MSD Tach Adapter
      -TT adjustable Pulley
      -custom manifold by MDR Performance
      -GSXR 750 carbs, brand new and jetted pretty close to what is needed
      -AEB Wideband o2 sensor
      -new carter fuel pump
      -new timing belt
      -new water pump
      -Power Steering looped
      -mk1 radiator
      -new tie rods
      -new ball joints
      -New brake pads
      -new master cylinder
      -new clutch
      -4-1 header, 2 1/4 side exit exhaust
      -short shift kit
      -rebuilt shifter linkage
      -slim fan
      -Saab Vacuum advance Distributor
      -wire tuck
      -Minty Full Recaro Interior
      -battery relocated in trunk
      -VW roof rack
      -badgeless grille
      -raceland Coilovers
      -Front and Rear H&R sway bars
      -Borbet Type E 16x7.5 wheels
      -10mm spacers

      The body is in awesome condition, Alpine White, power everything (minus the sunroof, which has a brand new seal btw), no rust, small bumpers all intact and in great conditon.

      I have a bunch of other parts that will come with this car, there is enough to rebuild a second motor w/ CIS-e, you can take what you want, or not its up to you.

      Will send any pics you want, just ask.

      I have a clean texas title and current registration for it

      I am asking $2400 OBO will entertain all offers/ potential trades but dont low ball me, there is more than that in just the motor.

      Located in Houston.
