    350+ HP 1989 Daytona C/S- heavily modified, tons of extras

    Description: I bought this car in stock form (with no engine) @ 100k miles in Phoenix in 2002. It was my 4th turbo G-body. I was told it was an Arizona only car and it appeared to be pretty solid. Most of the modifications were done '02-’03. After the initial build I moved to Michigan, and the rust just exploded after a couple years- the floorboards, rockers, doors... The paint also just flaked away (quality Chrysler white). I didn't attempt to keep up with the body degradation, just wanted a solid drivetrain. In 2010 I was tired of stretching clutch cables from the 'racing’ clutch I installed, so I upgraded to the TU clutch set- great clutch. I then also added the TU fuel rail & regulator, cold-start injectors, line locks, oil catch can, and replaced the steering rack. I’ve put less than 500 miles on it since then. I've put $15k into it. It hasn't been dynoed, but it pulls harder that a 366HP Dinan M3. It's going as a package deal, all or nothing.

    The Bad

    • Body is pretty rusty with lots of paint peel; perforated floorboards, rocker panels, quarter panels, doors, and hatch.
    • Smoke is expelled from exhaust and the engine breather filter, smells like burning oil. Engine passes compression and cylinder leakage tests, but blow-by symptoms are there. Worst case- engine needs cylinder boring and larger pistons & rings. Best case- engine needs cylinder honing and piston rings.
    • Engine oil pan gasket leak.
    • OTC scan tool sometimes takes a few on/off cycles to power-up, but it works fine.
    • 4th gear grinds when downshifting from fifth, transmission is healthy otherwise.
    • Though interior is complete, it is worn with some damaged components.
    • Right Koni strut exhibits fluid leakage from the adjustment valve.
    • Tires are really old, but don’t have any cracks and have a lot of tread.

      I couldn't attach any pics- see photos here:

    First $2,500 takes it all. I'm either going to disassemble & part-out the car or fix the blow-by this winter if it doesn't sell.
