$8500 is a fair price, but it always makes me nervous when they are willing to accept a trade of equal value. That tells me he isn't selling it because he needs the money, so it likely has problems.

holy **** I need that. I bet the wilson manifold alone was $1000. I'd ******* love to roll that bitch off a trailer and beat up on big, squeeze cars.

A pity they started with a turd motor for a swap. They did polish that turd quite well but still.

They should have done a 4G63 if they were going to throw a Mitsu motor in it. It's not like there aren't 4G63 swaps into Starquests anyway.

I have a friend who used to have a 450whp Starion...weak point was the tranny, his ate 3rd gear and he sold it because he couldn't afford to install a beefier tranny.

460rwhp is pretty weaksauce for all that work. Should have spent the $$ on a BP and had more power. Nice swap anyway.

pretty badass, but for a strictly drag car with built everything, 460 is weaksause.
worked over 4g63 with a large turbo would have easily put down at least double
