should mention your car is fully loaded S too, moonroof!
if i get a better job i'll be getting rid of my camry then get a sti or atleast wrx and maybe another rolla for project car... hahah all corolla ppl hopping on to the subaru ban wagon... soon trd forums turns into sti forums hahhaha
Yeah, I love the STI. I would like to keep both cars but I don't have the room.
Fuck i want this.
Holy crap, the more I think about it the more I want it.
Also have a set of power enterprise 550cc injectors I would throw in too. I have a lot of stuff for this car that is not listed above. Whoever takes over the car and the project can have it all!
$4000 is a steal,i got the cash but i know shipping the car is very expensive i just wish you was located closer.
My problem is I live on the opposite end of the country. It would cost more to get it here than the purchase price.
Not true, most cars can be shipped clean across the country for less than $1000.
is it not yet driveable? trailer it. rooooad trip!!
considering the condition of the car you could do an open trailer transport for around 600. if you were worried a closed trailer would cost more, but sounds like the condition is so so.
wait, i thought it was drivable?
He already mentioned to me he doesnt want to sell it to an out of state buyer...
Let me clarify. The car is 100% drivable. It needs to be turned by a professional once the ESC-1 is installed to get its maximum potential but right now it drives just fine. The only problem is if you go to full boost then push in the clutch to let the engine drop RPM's really fast it will sputter while it returns to good AFR. The ESC-1 will fix that, that is what it is designed for. I have the seats out of the car right now and the a lot of dashboard trim removed, etc. But if I threw the seats back in the car would drive just fine. Just would need some new tabs on it since I have not bought tabs for it this last time around. As far as other things wrong with the car here is the list.
* Dent in passenger side fender
* Mismatched paint on the hood (used wrong color to patch a ding)
* Clutch makes a little ticking noise when it is disengaged (pushed in) since one of the fingers on the pressure plate is a little bent (my theory). The clutch itself works 100% and engages very hard! To fix the noise just pop in a new pressure plate.
The above is cheap to fix, I would get a hood with an integrated a scoop anyways. That was my original pan so I could get some more air in the engine bay to help cool the turbo near the firewall. The car idles, puurrrrs and rev's like a kitten. The new engine I put in it is really like new. I do not want to sell to a buyer that is instate. That is the reason why I'm offering the car so cheap. Otherwise I would return it to stock and sell it for a few grand more and sell the turbo kit, HID lights, Suspension, Gauges, Computers, etc all separately and make about $10k. My goal is for someone near by to pick up the car so I can see it again someday when it's fully done. And I want the possibility of driving by it again some day and seeing it on the road. I put way too much work in to this car to see it just disappear forever I would not even be selling the car if it wasn't for my wife harping on me, she is mad because it has been in the garage for so long and I only have a 1 car garage and the parking lot is really crowded. I lost the argument. If anyone else has questions please add them to the thread and I will check it daily. Next weekend if the weather is nice I'll pull the car out, toss the seats and dash trim back in and wash her up to take some new photo's for the forum.
You should definately post up some videos of it running, revving etc. I would like to hear it purrr
Good luck with the sale!
I will, if we get some nice weather here in Duvall in the next week I'll pull it out of the garage and wash it up, wax it and do some videos and pics. Maybe drive around the block and blow it off a couple times
My friend moved from Miami to LA and it cost him around $1000 to ship his car
Cool man can't wait!!
Yea thats true, I had my Prizm shipped from Chicago to Miami for about $600, so having the car shipped doesn't sound too bad esp at the 4K steal price.
wow... i'm thinking of selling some camera equipment just to pick this up... ridiculous deal!
Indeed, I was considering coming up from the southern most point of California to get it.
if somebody drives up you should bring me that carbon fiber hood from the other thread
lmao. If it were me, Id probably fly up though.
Arghhh... my brother's in seattle too... be great to have something like that... I actually looked at your car a couple years back when I thought of installing a carpc into my corolla... I didn't want to lose my vents though so I dropped the idea...
Sounds like someone should purchase your car and buy my VIS invader CF hood for 200 and put em together.
I am going to put the car all back togather next weekend (this weekend I must hang out with friends!) and then I'll post more pics, etc. Hopefully when I get it 100% back togather and out of the garage I dont fall in love with it again and decide to keep it Here's hoping! If someone wants to buy the car before I put it back togather that is okay too I just want the car to stay local (within 100 miles) so I can see it again sometime I'll check for forum again in a few days. I must go right now because work is killing me and I need sleep.
What ever happened to this corolla ?
haven't heard from him in a long time. I saw the car quite a while ago and he was getting the emanage working and tuned but no word since then.
o word ? i would love to see how the car is going
