SOLD! Thanks for the interest.

- Stainless brake lines (Doug Rippie Motorsports)
- Extra set of Hawk pads

Exterior
- IForged TE10 18x9.5, 19x11 wheels
- Nitto Invo 275 front, 305 rear

- Extra set of 4 C5Z rear wheels w/ Pirelli slicks
- Lowering bolts installed front and rear, lowered a bit
- Transparent roof

Interior
- 3LT (dual zone climate, seat warmers, etc)
- HUD

It was built to be a rock solid daily driver and track day car. The new engine and drivetrain is just broken in, running fantastic. I will have exact dyno numbers soon (very soon if there's interest), but it should be a good bit over 500rwhp and around 500rwtq. I put a lot of time and money into the car, especially this past winter, and was looking forward to enjoying it, but the wife is looking at a career change, and this would facilitate her taking time off to study for a while.

AutoX in St Paul


In the driveway


Up at BIR


Will post a video or two after work. Many of these pictures are from last summer, prior to the drivetrain rebuild, but still accurate exterior-wise other than being a little lower now.

Price: $32,000 or best offer ($31,500 without the C5Z wheels w/ slicks, I have some local interest in those). I just added it all up, and being conservative, the car has at least $19,600 in upgrades, most of which have 1200 miles or less, and were done RIGHT.

Car is located near Minneapolis, MN

Questions? Ask away!

VIN available upon request, car has a 100% clean history. I am the 2nd owner, bought w/ low miles from a dealer (original owner traded in on an Audi S6).

Someone will enjoy this car for a long time. Much more $ put into it than I'm asking and everything is very carefully chosen and done right.

I'm amazed how quickly this place works. Can't even keep up with the PMs at work so far.

I will add more info to this thread later today, in regards to the common questions I've been receiving.

Misc answers to questions I've received:
I will include all the stock parts I have left (stock manifolds, midpipes/cats, stock intake, and a couple other misc items).

I will leave tuned for 91-93 for now unless the buyer prefers e85, which I will have it tuned for at no cost. So far people seem to prefer leaving it for 91-93, oddly enough (cold start issues and availability issues with e85).

All options, AC, cruise, heated seats, radio, etc work correctly.

The cam was spec'ed to be a good daily driver with my heads/intake/shortblock selection. The clutch still chatters from time to time on takeoff, it takes a while to break the Monster clutches in, but from driving friends' cars with Monster clutches, I'm sure it will go away with some more miles under it. Other than takeoff, it drives pretty close to stock. Cruises in 6th at 55 just fine, shifts are easy and smooth as butter, nothing crazy. It will be awkward if you let it drop under 1100 rpm or so in gear, but that's any cammed LS.

The car is not quiet. If you want a stock sounding car, it's not for you unfortunately. The cam is a bit lopey at idle because I like the sound of a cammed idle, but I understand it's not for everyone. I just want to be clear that the car is not quiet. It's tame at cruising RPMs, but get into the throttle, and you're not fooling anyone.

If your state has emission testing, it likely will not pass it, as it does not have cats. It does not throw codes (tuned), but if they do a sniff test, you're on your own. My state does not, but I can't speak to your particular state, I'm sure you either already know or can find out easily though.

The car has been stored in heated storage each winter with a cover on (cover is included).

Flaws: Remainder of a somewhat deep 2" scratch on the hood that was 95% fixed with wet sanding and buffing, but a small part of what it once was is still noticeable at the right angle. A couple scratches on the clear top, one from bumping the roof into the garage ceiling when taking it off (doh!). Typical orange peel GM paint like any other factory GM painted vette. Normal leather seat wear, passenger seat is perfect, driver's seat is certainly used, but no rips, tears, anything like that. Rest of the interior is flawless.

I'm also interested in partial trades on newer ~600cc bikes (06+ R6, for example).

Also willing to ship. Would prefer someone to see the car in person and do a face to face transaction, but open to it.

Pretty sweet car at a great price. Any pics under the hood. I don't want to give the wrong impression as I am not in the market for a car right now but thought it might help it sell. Just wanted to see how it looks for myself. GLWS and free bump.

Good call, sure. Here's one from just before it was wrapped up this winter, and below are some more parts/miscellaneous photos from the build this winter that might interest people.


And here's one of the drivetrain just before it went back in the car.


Here's the clutch that went in it:


Assembling the top end:



Z06 Oil Cooler Lines:


Here's the car in storage prior to the rebuild this winter:


And this is just a picture I like

Thanks man! I haven't listed it anywhere else yet. This was intended as a feeler originally, I wasn't 100% certain I wanted to sell, but now I'm pretty sure. I'm too busy with other projects to really enjoy the car for probably the next 2 years, and it will help the wife get into a better job, so it just makes more sense to not have it hanging over my head.

I know :\ Have things we want to do that take money, doesn't make sense to have this much cash tied up in a car when I won't have time to enjoy it for a long while now anyway. I won't be terribly upset if it doesn't sell, either way I will be back in a vette in a couple years, I would just like to get some other things taken care of sooner than later.

Thanks though, and thanks for the pic (FYI to others, that was before the car was lowered, although it can be set to about any height you want with the new screws)
