Long story short my father and I spent about 2.5 years building this car from the frame up. The car was stripped down to its bare frame and every aspect of the car was looked over and rebuilt or restored. The car only has ~10,000 miles on it from the rebuild. I then moved across the US for college and the car stayed back at home in storage. It's been in storage for about 5 years now and it's time to finally let go of it. I'm sure there are miscellaneous items i'm missing so i'll continue to update as I remember. Looking to get $4,000. I've also got a spare 5 speed Getrag tranny (28,xxx original miles), 4-speed tranny, and other miscellaneous parts. If you purchase the car you are welcome to have whatever spare parts you want to grab. The car was originally built N/A with intentions of turbocharging at a later date. I initially had a smaller turbo (.40/.48) on the car and decided to go bigger. The car has gone through about a dozen iterations through Sinister Performance for an initial tune on the smaller turbo. One winter I bought a rebuilt T3/T4 Hybrid .60/.63 turbo, as well as a new turbo specific camshaft too install, and get ready for when I was done with school the following summer, however, I ended up staying out of state so I never got around to coming back to the car to drive it. The larger turbo and camshaft are installed on the car currently and have less than 50 miles on them. The car DOES currently drive.

Pros

Engine/drivetrain
3.4L Camaro bottom end and heads
Fully blueprinted and balanced motor (stock compression) (10,000 miles on the rebuild)

21lb injectors
SAAB intercooler with fan
HKS SSQV BOV
Adjustable fuel pressure regulator with gauge
Manual boost controller

Powder coated turbo, intake plenum, valve covers, etc.
'85 ECU with knock sensor
2 bar map sensor
Custom 2.5" exhaust with muffler, no cats
5-speed Getrag transmission
Spec Stage 3 clutch (10,000 miles)
ACCEL 10mm plug wires
MSD blaster coil

Body
1985 GT frame converted to 1988 GT fastback
Custom yellow paint job

Full factory power options

Suspension
Full poly bushings all the way around
Wire brushed rebuilt and painted suspension components
Rebuilt calipers (10,000 miles)
Drilled/slotted rotors with pads (10,000 miles)
Coilovers (10,000 miles)
17" wheels with tires (10,000 miles)

Cons
The car has been sitting for about 5 years so it needs some TLC.
There are quite a few spots on the car when paint has peeled off and will need to be repaired.
The left door of the car is in primer as it was damaged in storage a couple years ago and will need to be repainted.
The chin spoiler will need to be repainted
The car has a pretty basic tune completed by Sinister Performance but will need to be dialed it a bit better. It is running very rich right now.
Car needs a new rear decklid lock
Minor surface rust in engine compartment from sitting for 5 years.


Let me know if you have any questions. The vehicle is located near Glendale Heights, IL.

In the Links below I've got some pictures from when it was finished building, as well as it's current condition. I've got plenty more pictures to send if anyone is interested in more.

The turbo was powdercoated and is still in great condition.
