Another question a serious buyer would ask is who built the car, if not yourself?
And if you did it yourself, a little background on your abilities?

thanks!

I personally built the entire car. I've been building my own "tuner" cars for the last six years and I'm currently working on my third car (AE86) which will be more involved than the Scion was or could be.

As for my background, I am a full time manager at Advance Auto Parts, been doing that for four years, and a part time mechanic on the weekends so knowledge of what to put in a car and how to do it is there. I have done everything from suspension, brakes, exhaust, driveline mechanical, electrical including build my own wiring harnesses and repairing factory harnesses, and I even do body work and fabrication as well.

If you are questioning the quality of my build, which any prospective buyer has the right to do, you have nothing to worry about. The engine I have built for this car has been more reliable and stronger than the factory engine was. As I said in my description I have replaced every single fastener in the engine for two reasons: First, I absolutely hate when people reuse primary engine fasteners. All the rod, main, head, and intake manifold studs or bolts were replaced with OEM bolts from Toyota. The exhaust manifold bolts were all replaced with extended length grade 8 studs and they are secured by stainless steel nuts and stainless steel lock washers.

Between the gaskets and the factory bolts I spent close to 500 on just those parts. Second, regardless of weather the Toyota factory fasteners are torque to yield or not I was building a performance engine and I didn't want to cut any corners. I even went out and bought a new torque wrench just to put this engine together and it has been sitting in a case waiting for me to build the 20 valve engine for the AE86.

All of the bearings were Plastigauged and the piston rings were gapped according to CP Pistons gap specification for turbo applications. In case you were wondering, CP Pistons pre-gapped the rings but I still spent 3 hours checking the gap clearances on every ring for every cylinder, and, all of the bearings were cleaned on both sides with denatured alcohol before assembly.


If anyone has any questions, don't be afraid to ask.

Price has changed.

Also, coming this weekend, will be some updated pictures with the graphics removed, and the factory seating in the car.


Thanks for looking!

I thought so, especially when spending $$ on a mod list that large.

Thanks for the detailed writeup. I do believe this car is worth your asking price, i just don't like my cars looking that pretty. J/K.. good luck, i hope you get what you want for it!

Pricing is now changed. $11,995

You will get this car, completely turbo charged with everything to support it, a set of winter wheels and summer wheels both with tires, factory two tone seats installed, and two custom hoods. And yes, there will be no graphics on the car, I have already begun to remove them.

I will entertain reasonable offers folks, and if you are in the area, test drives are available.

Last price change before it goes up on E-bay!

New Price is 11,000 or best offer.

Car runs great in the winter time as well, even in single digit temps and it handles well in light snow.
