There are a few more things I may have forgotten but might remember later.

The car is in great shape and is very clean. I am asking for $17,000.00 Canadian. There was over $20,000.00 into the motor alone.

If you are interested, you can call me at 905-856-0041 or send me an e-mail to

I did a Dyno run at Autobahn Speed Tuning. The car hit 310 hp at the wheels and 308 Foot pounds of torque at only 12 PSI. This a very well built 7 day a week 24 hrs a day car. No messing around with anything. Just put the key in and go!!!

The head gasket can hold 17 psi. The motor can handle around 24 psi and the turbo pushes out 33 psi.

So, if anyone has any questions, or may be interested in buying my car, please let me know!

The Car only Has 8 000 KM since I took it out this year!!!! If you would like more pics, please e-mail me!!

Give the guy a break man... If you don't want to buy it, then don't. Don't hassle the guy on his price, look at what he posted above. If you aren't interested in it, don't post.

I agree...Don't bash someones for sale thread...I can vouch that Carmen is a really good guy and i'm sure the price is extremely reasonable given the extensive amount of work done. He hooked me up with rotors,pads, and fluid*th-up*

Bump for great shop QMR and a hot/fast car.:cool:

Tommy Boy 04-18-2006 05:45 PM

i know its a good car, but im honestly curious about how his car and the car i refered to compares....

Justin e36 04-18-2006 05:56 PM

This car has a whole lot more work done to it, nevermind that this one is turboed, with some very serious mods done it .. interior, exterior, and some nice vehicle tracking too.

Well I dont want to be here and compare cars, but for more info, the motor itself is fully built. Now if anyone knows to rebuild a stock VR6 it can cost some good money, but to do the work that I have with the pistons, rods, crank, studs, port and polish, new chains and guides etc. that is a lot more money. Like it says above you are lookihng at around $20,000 in work with the turbo alone. I didnt think I was asking for to much. However it also does say Serious best offer. I would settle for $16,000. I know that I was never going to get the money I put into it. Its my hobby and Job and I enjoyed and enjoy every second of it. Time to let it go and move on to something new. If you were to do what I did, it would cost a lot more.

Hope this explains!
