Default 90 2.0 stroker turbo - great condition!

Hey Guys,


I've got an extremely well put together red 1990 that I'll be selling very soon. The car used to belong and was put together by Clint Host, owner of Gashead Motorworks. According to a friend of mine, he's seen this car lap Z06's at multiple tracks. It has 240,000 miles on the odometer, but pretty much everything on the car has been replaced in the past 6 or 7 years. It has been maintained very well in it's entire life.

I'll be taking it down to Houston tonight to have Clint tweak the tuning a little bit, get a few more hp out of the car, and give it a thorough overlook to make sure that everything is in great shape. Obviously there has been considerable expense in putting this car together, but I will adjust based on any work needed to make this car 100% perfect (I think it's pretty much there already, especially being 18 years and 240k miles on the chassis). The only thing i know for sure if wrong with the car is a very very small PS leak, not even enough to see the level drop in the reservoir since the leak started. I get about 21-23 mpg city.

There's no question that I'm missing things in this list that've been done to the car... Very few things in/on the car are stock..

The engine is a 2.0 stroker, with Wiseco pistons and Carillo rods. Turbo is a GT2560, currently running 12 or 15 psi for low/high boost controlled from a Profec B. 440cc (I think, or 550..) injectors. Link ECU. Front mount intercooler, with a K&N intake. Magnecor plug wires. The engine is powder coated black. Same with the intake (dunno what year model intake..) Greddy blow off valve. Turbo single exhaust, high flow cat. Passes emissions easily. ACT clutch and lightened flywheel. I think the rear end components have also been replaced (receipts from previous owner).

The wheels are very rare SSR GP-0 Evolution wheels, with good tread left on the tires. Bilstein shocks and Ground Control coilovers. Big brake kit on the front, better rotors and pads on the rear. Strut tower bar from a newer Miata.

Body has a Simpson Design cowl hood, Racing beat front bumper, side skirts, and rear bumper. Hardtop as well, with a soft top that is very new (hardly used). BSP low profile headlights. The antenna was shaved before a paint job, and all the lettering on the light covers has been shaved smooth. Also has a polished Hard Dog rollbar

Interior, seats are very well done black leather outside and red suede inside. Same suede surrounding the shift ****. Defi gauges for boost and exhaust temp on the a pillar, with oil temp and pressure below the cd deck. 6 disc changer in the trunk. Components in the doors, and headrest speakers. Momo steering wheel with leather and suede. There is a Clifford alarm, that has inside motion sensors, so if the top is down and someone reaches their hand in the car the alarm will go off. As well as remote trunk release.

The body has very few imperfections, I'll take pictures of that as well this weekend. Let me know if you guys have any questions, and feel free to pass this info over to anybody else. Sorry for the novel! Price is $11,500

Do you know who actually built the stroker? That turbo sounds a bit small for the 2.0

I'm not sure if it was FM, or Clint Host himself. I'll ask him tomorrow when I'm at the shop.

I think the turbo is very good size for the engine. Very decent power delivery, and quick spool up. Before thinking of selling, I almost threw in a 3071 but would miss the non-lag that this turbo offers.

I have a few questions,

do you know how many miles are on the motor?

Hopefully it does infact have the 1.8 rear? Im sure it does if you drove it for any period of time lol.

Does the car have a working A/C system?

How much whp did she make? Im guessing not huge amounts with that turbo, but an awesome powerband..

Car looks nice, gl!

fairly obvious FM didn't build it, as they put a build plate on theirs.

Not sure what power yet, hopefully will find out tomorrow and post a dyno sheet sometime this weekend. I should also be able to find out the mileage on the motor as well tomorrow.

The A/C worked last fall, haven't even tried turning it on yet this Spring. I'm sure it will though.

Guys I can vouch for this car. Clint kept it so pampered you would not believe it.

And i'm not sure if clint or FM built it but the motor would have been built back in 99-00 before they put the plates on it.

Hey guys,

Back from Houston and the car is running better than ever. Almost makes me want to change my decision to sell...

The engine was built by Clint, and has no more than 30,000 miles on it. The rear is a torsen 2 out of a 97 I think he said. In addition to the tuning, he replaced 3 sway bar end links, and the front left wheel hub that was a little loose.

The peak hp obviously isn't going to be great with this turbo, but I was more than happy with the torque curve. The car has SO much power from a very low RPM it's awesome to drive around town without having to be up past 5k rpms to get anywhere

The picture is a little small, but if you click the Download link on the right side it'll download to full size so you can see all the details. There was definitely something up with the tune prior..

Enjoy! http://picasaweb.google.com/cavellmc...24664641682834
