I have built this for SCCA Racing Ep & GT3, The cage is 1 3/4 DOM mandrel bent, nascar style door bars, driverside, Over bore 1.2mm special designed Forged Pistons , Personally desiged Cam .495 lift ?#?#?# duration, Counterweights knifed edged and lightened 280Z frt sectioned struts rear sectioned struts , Fidanza aluminum flywheel, Gone through trans, 4:11 locker diff,hand formed dash fiberglass hood, fenders, hatch,door shells pinned, Fuel SAFE FUEL CELL 22GAL. Firebottle, Odyssey dry cell battery, Autometer night lite guages 2 egt's Special designed & hand formed air intake with pressure increase by air inductio 7.5" down to 4" to3 1/4" Ceramic exhaust 3" side exit , XDI crank fire ignition, canton oil filter & oil Cooler, 2.5" coil overs and too damn much time trying to paint the little fella. Almost named it GutBuster after the grinder blew up and put a hole oin the breadbasket but I still love the the little guy. I have gained a few lbs and need to loose a bit. It is now awkward getting in. Once I put in the cut down Nascar windshield I have no place to grab as I lower my well anchored body in to it. Honestly it is worth every grunt!!!!!!!Due to health will let go for $55,000.00 Sadly, My baby does HAVE A PRICE!)
