Car I might buy
What do you like to do with your cars? I'd go with a GSR swap sooner than a turbo setup. And only an EG hatch for me...
to be honest with ya im not in to buying cars that are already built, but thats just me. If you really like it then buy it up. But also I must ask you this it says in the add greddy turbo timer.....what for exactly????
If you like it, get it.
That's pretty clean. I am wondering about the turbo timer too...
I'd get it if I had $7000.
maybe preparing for a future turbo install?
i like it. he has almost the same gauges my EG had. but its missing something... a mugen steering wheel!!!
and yes that was my actual mileage... RIP my 92 at under 56k miles.
i would buy it.
I just kinda wanted to get peoples reactions to the car, I would only buy something that I really liked myself anyway. I went and drove the car yesterday and HOLY SHIT. It's a fucking rocket. I shifted gears to second and stepped on it and spun them for like 10 feet. It's faster than the Type R I drove. It's also gutted from the front seats back.
The turbo timer is because he was going to turbo charge it, but realized what a bitch it would be with the high c/r pistons. I can only imagine what that car would be like with a turbo. :eek3:
Was looking for a stock EG coupe to turbo-charge and came across this.
Nearly pissed pants.
Decided to buy this instead.
I'll keep you guys informed.
naw, fuck that. Build your own shit. For 7000, you could have a QUICK eg hatch built to your own liking. without all that extra bling bling that your paying for with this car. my $.02
For $7000 I could NOT build an EG anywhere NEAR as quick. And damnit people I want a COUPE. the hatches are fugly IMO. As far as "extra Bling, Bling I'm paying for, lets see -
B18c GSR motor + ITR pistons/and valvetrain + CTR cams = > $4000
17" rims + tires = > $1000
Ground control/tokiko HPs/swaybars/strutbars = > $1000
Stereo = > $500
Tenzo R bucket seats = > $500
Exedy clutch/intake/header/exhaust/fuel pump = > $1000
I left a lot of stuff out too...
So, thats AT LEAST $8000 worth of not so useless parts that I want, that are already on this car. Not including the price of the car. And I offered them $6300. So IMO it would cost me at least $8000 ON TOP OF BUYING THE STOCK CAR to build this car. And I'm picking it up for $6300. Good deal IMO.
good choice get then run and tell us how it does
lemme drive it shadney... i'll show you how to handle that beast!
Why do you think I wanted the SoCal meet 3 weeks away?????
