Ahh yes, the old 44HP weight removal trick. Classic.
calling the NYspeed competitive race department…
Are you summoning the wizard?
Potential for 414 HP. Hell, I should trade him straight up for that.
The Fair Lady, built to compete with Mustangs.
Stock, this Z has phenomenal launch.
Slight lift front/slight down in rear.
However, with the 3rd stage racing clutch/Heavy-duty pressure plate.
Launch is spectacular.
Others literally “spinning wheels”, Z is down the track.
VG30 engine stock HP 160.
Add 36 HP for engine driven fan replaced with electric.
Add 62 HP for Headers.
Add 16 HP for intake.
Add 16 HP for ignition upgrade.
Add 44 HP weight reduction Z is @ 334 HP now.
At Track only, Remove A/C and Power steering belts (leave water pump belt) Adds 80+ HP.
Without A/C and power steering belts removed Z turned 12.44 in quarter@ 109.5 MPH.
May B 11 sec without belts.
Just married on Valentine’s Day, keeping VROD Muscle.
Z must go, boo hiss.
is Z is a sleeper…
For anyone who hasn’t clicked the link. This is just awesome.
I like the HP gain for headers and belt removal only at the track
I flagged it, fuck that guy.

Keep in mind to build this car from scratch, with the cost of a Focus you’re looking AT LEAST around $30K to $40K to redo all this work professionally. Reprogramming the ECU and getting all the electronics to work together takes unique expertise and is a lengthy and expensive process. Bottomline is, I’m asking pennies on every dollar spent. Also all the componets are new since the car has only 200 miles on the build!
Never raced or on a dyno. Estimated hp is 340+
Decent example of an old Kugel Komponents kit build… @onyxz32
Old news, get with it Josh.
Just think of all the money you save on this teg
$75,000 in mods…asking only $14900
I am a fan of the S14 front, just not on this
Sounds like a sound financial plan. Why not just give it away at that point.
75000… I think someone forgot a decimal place in there somewhere.
2000 Silverado LT Z71 Museum Condition 29k miles - $15000
A truck in this condition will never be found again I repeat NEVER.
If this truck doesn’t sell for 15K I will call General Motors and ask if they would like to place in their private auto museum.
Sure you will…
Disclaimer: If you try to scam me I will find you and take away your food stamps and public housing
Wonder what upgrades they’ve done. Anyone up for the texting/calling challenge to see what work was done for $75,000?
im just going to assume most of the 75k is labor for that hideous front end swap
It’s a “sports car” and a mini station wagon. Very cool. This is a beautiful specimen of a rare automobile. The automobile itself isn’t so rare but the special “Sportback” feature is very rare. I was attracted to the car because of it and it was my first new car… I am the original owner. It has 142XXX miles and the only reason I’m selling it is the lack of space in my garage. The car has “T-tops” that conveniently fit in a special place underneath the Sportback. The paint is good, interior great and the engine runs smoothly. Seats are like new. The car is 28 years old and must have, at least, classic car status by now. It’s a beauty and please get in touch ONLY if you plan to take care of it. All reasonable offers will be considered. Thanks. Bill.
