Default 1988 323 GTX monster

I know this is an MX-5 board but help a brotheren out and find my "angry bitch" a happy home. I can only have one toy.

I have a 1988 White 323 GTX. It has been a work in progress for the past 5 years. Now I've moved to the great white north and there are no decent roads, and no time to truely enjoy this monster.

Suspension: RRE Koni yellows with Ground Control ride height adjustable perches, GTR swaybars welded into place, crash bolts for camber adjustment +/- 2.5 degrees.

Brakes: Big brake conversion with supporting 929 master cylinder and brake booster, all rotors are cyrogenically treated and semi racing pads.

Interior: Grant steering wheel, short throw shifter and bushings, battery relocation to truck with SCCA legal venting, Optima yellowtop battery, real-time ECU monitoring display, integrated boost gauge into stock cluster, stock seats and belts, power glass sunroof, Kenwood MASK CD player and aftermarket speakers.

Exterior: Rusty, previous owner was dishonest and claimed body to be in excellent shape. The cheap bondo-rific touchup he did has long since fallen off and this car is in need of some body-type attention, stock 14" wheels with Hakkapelita winters and Azeni 615 summers.

Engine: 1.8 litre Jap spec GTX motor borred out to 1.92litres, Wiseco turbo pistons, Crower H rods, ARP head and main studs, stage 3 ported head and heavy duty valve springs, RC Engineering 550cc injectors, completely balanced rotating assembly, PSITech stand alone engine management system, Stainless steel 2.5" mandrel bent custom exhaust, VF8/10 hybrid turbo with internal wastegate, Front mounted intercooler painted black for stealthiness, dyno sheeted proven 300+ whp, Greddy Type S BOV, SPAL pusher fan.

Other: Custom built front and rear axles capable of 600hp, 2 of 3 engine mounts solid polyurathane, transmission taken apart and cryogenically treated then rebuilt, various spare parts to be included, Walboro 255 fuel pump, wideband oxygen sensor built into ECU, lightened flywheel, BULLY stage 3 kevlar clutch, new fuel tank, custom made balanced driveshaft, new Mazda wheel bearings, Built in 90 second turbo timer, remote locks.

I know I'm missing things, but that is all that is coming to mind right now. Oh geeze I almost forgot, I live in Grande Prairie Alberta now. And am asking $15000 but am willing to talk.

out of curiosity, where is the rust? rear fenders and side skirts? is the fuel tank rusted?

impressive mechanicals. my '88 gtx runs at 22psi with the same hybrid turbo on the original motor, different owner now. eats evos and STIs for lunch at the rally crosses.

Yup rust is on the rear fenders and side skirts. There is also a small patch on the hood. The fuel tank is brand new. Aparently I got the last one in Canada.

Advertise this on the Calgary Sports Car Club page. Lots of rally people there. Also try 780 tuners.

It's a nice example of a rare car, honestly at that price you are going to have a tough time selling it. You might have to sit on it for a long time hoping the right guy comes along.
