OK. It's really a Suzuki. A three cylinder Suzuki with a Turbo. It needs a lot of work. It runs if you push start it. Needs a starter. Has a salvage title, the paint is dull, it has dents and dings all over it and ghetto styled hood pins. I am letting her go because my new job involves lots of billable hours and I just don't have time for projects anymore.

I will let it go for $400 cash which is what I paid for it last year when I have more time than money. I will try to get a few more pictures of the car up. Somebody needs to bring this to the Challenge

I don't see anything on your profile to tell me what part of the country you're in.

In stock form the turbo Sprint was rated at 70 horsepower in a car that was rated at 1535 lbs. EPA rated at 35 city 40 highway.

Forget the starter. At that weight, just push start it all the time. Heck, you could likely manage to do so up a light grade.

One of the many cars on my "I always wanted one of those" list. Man, have to see what Street Prepared class that's in. That's a light car. Shoot, in SP trim maybe under 1,400. That's crazy light! Get it up to 90 HP ish and you'd be flying!

Dang, I just looked - that's an FSP car. Oooohhhh. Would be fun. Kinda the opposite of my heavy RWD FSP project.

1500 lbs is not hard, but under that gets harder. The motors are more stout than most, and are 20-25 psi capable all day long. Mine is fairly stock, as projects go, and will run a high 14 at 15 psi on the stock turbo. 70 hp, and 108 lb/ft of torque at 7.5 psi stock, and adding boost is as easy as taking weight out. Not a lot of parts support, but enough, and tons of tech support available. A Geo Metro starter would probably work.

I've said it before. These are the perfect cars. They do EVERYTHING well.

That 14 second car got 52 MPG (imperial) while driving it like a 14 second car, the last time I checked it.

I can answer any questions you may have about these cars.

How do I make it small enough to hide under my workbench so the wife doesn't see it?

If I didn't have kart stuff to buy and every weekend spent at the track, I'd be all over this......

You don't need to shrink anything, you need to grow a pair, and tell your wife that you're getting 2 of them
