This car was built with original intentions to have a very fast drag car that was still able to be driven daily on the street. The motor was rebuilt at around 35,000 miles by Buschur Racing. The built transfer case, new turbo setup, intercooler setup, clutch, and most other mods were also done when the motor was out of the car at around 35,000 miles. The built transmission was installed at around 38,000 miles. A compression test was done a few months ago and showed perfect compression across all cylinders +/- 5.
This car is 100% daily drivable. I used to daily this setup all the time to work and school. Normal acceleration out of boost drives fine and no slower than your normal average car. High driving with such killer top end is always a blast too. The car retains all daily driving function such as power-steering and ice-cold A/C. The clutch may take some getting used to, but is not too hard.
This car is also a killer drag car. I used to race this Evo a lot on it's old GT35R setup and motor build (which is not the same motor build in the car now). On the GT40R setup, I've only taken the car to the drag strip once and raced a few cars on the highway. The car had fouled plugs when I was at the track due to nitrous runs on the dyno from earlier. I ran a 11.00 @ 137mph OFF the bottle, shifting at about 7,200rpm, with misfiring from fouled plugs. I am also a terrible drag racer and am not afraid to admit it. Everyone has told me that my car should easily go 9's with a good driver and rubber... I never cared to go back to the track after that 11.00 run. On the highway, I've raced a few 600whp - 800whp cars on my PUMP GAS + METH setting and never lost.
800WHP+ EASILY ACHIEVABLE:
This car can EASILY make more power from a few small changes. The 3" exhaust on the car currently is very restrictive... especially the muffler. Changing over to a 4" exhaust can easily free up another 50whp to 100whp+. The nitrous pills can also be changed out for a 100shot or higher for more power. I simply was content with a 600whp+ pump + meth and 700whp+ race gas car and didn't care for more.
I am in no hurry to sell this car... however, I am just finally now putting it up sale for a few reasons. I rarely drive this car anymore because I always have at least one other car I drive around. I'm currently building a Supra so I've lost a lot of interest in this car. The Evo gets driven about one week out of each month just so it's not neglected. I have no use for two insanely fast street cars so I have chosen for the Evo to be sold.
I will entertain any/all *REASONABLE* trade offers + cash on your part.
If you have an offer, please make sure to give me a lot of detail about your car and a cash offer on top. Please do not low-ball me as most low-ballers will be ignored. This car is *completely* built, not just the motor like many other Evo's.
