  • DESCRIPTIONFOR SALE $35k (706-463-0494) VIDEO LINK: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37SlhjDujuc Ready to Drive Home! Bring gas card & radar detector :) Ever do a wheelie in a Porsche 911 before? 243 hours of custom bodywork & paint. Glass out, engine out, doors off, no holds barred paint job. It was stripped to bare metal by hand, primed, block sanded, primed, block sanded, shot with color and then clear coated. You can see the clouds reflect perfectly in the paint. Do not confuse this car with a "back yard" 911. This is all pro. Body: European 993 Turbo S body kit. Correct details down to the left hand wiper conversion. Electrical: Painless Performance racing fuse block using standard ATC type fuses & Flaming River cut-off switch. Interior: Stripped down to bare metal (floor pans were perfect) and then sealed with a truck bed liner. Lightweight carpet & custom aircraft grade door panels covered in black leather with "Porsche" embossed. Race seats, 5-point harnesses, SCCA roll cage, and RS style pulls is just the start. Stereo: Sony CD player with auxillary input (IPOD, or SAT radio) with 280 watts. Engine: The V8 is actually 50 POUNDS LIGHTER than a 930 turbo motor. Race bred Corvette 350 V8 with a healthy cam. Blueprinted, balanced, forged crankshaft & connecting rods, and even painted to match the car. MSD racing ignition system, rev limiter, FlowMaster 40's, Custom headers, everything Jet Hot coated to the tips in chrome. Cooling: Water cooled by a belt driven pump. Pump housing is custom with an off-the-shelf Chrysler big block impellor, custom Ron Davis radiator in front, back-up electric cooling fan. On a recent highway trip, I drove approx. 50 miles before the engine reached full operating temperature due to the amazing air cooling. Drivetrain: Renegade Hybrids Porsche 915 racing 5-speed transmission with the sought after 8:31 ring and pinion. True MAGNESIUM cased tranny with solid Billet inserts and modifications. Less than 100 pounds dry! Built to take 450 HP+. Extra tall 1st and 5th gears, 930 bearings, and 930 diff. cover. Wevo short shift kit, Redline Fluid and topped off with a chrome Porsche shift knob. Clutch: KEVLAR clutch and custom pressure plate. Brakes: Complete Boxer Motorsports racing brake kit. This is often referred to as a "Big Red" brake kit. The rotors and pads are actually common racing "Outlaw" and "Hawk" parts. Rebuilt master cylinder & upgraded stainless steel brake lines. ATE Super Blue racing fluid. During the prescribed break-in ritual for the brakes, I performed numerous hard stops, terrified my neighbors, and then returned home to shoot rotor temps with a laser thermometer - 250 degrees. They were not even breaking a sweat. The brakes are simply one of the most gratifying aspects of this car. Suspension: 30mm hollow core racing torsion bars. Each corner of the car is fully adjustable. Did I mention the car only weighs 2550 pounds? It has the power to weight ratio of a rocket. All new polygraphite bushings, tie rods, ball joints, front strut brace, bump steer kit as well as any other component that can be replaced. The Porsche dealer then spent SIX hours aligning the car to my specs. The car handles absolutely fantastic with instant feedback. Want to hang the tail out - no problem. Flip the car around a corner - yes. It stays flat, level, and begs for more. You will become a better driver just by testing this car. Protection: Fully functioning FM remote paging alarm with a ridiculous range and a full vehicle display. This car has been appraised at $60,000 to $65,000. It would cost you that much to build unless you could do ALL the work yourself. This is a serious car and is not for an immature driver. It will out accelerate, brake and handle most exotics for a fraction of the price. Thank you for looking. Life is short - live it! Your only old when your dreams are replaced by regrets.
