4 Door racing vehicle. RWD. 9 out of 10 condition. Well maintained and garage kept.
2.2 diesel titled track car is for sale. When first assembled for the street, I had a Ford GT40 short block in it. Now it is a 354" 4 bolt main motor that is 450hp and 410 torque. The current block came from a 704hp TransAm car and the block is good for 1200hp according to Ford Motorsport. The block has thicker walls, more nickel in it and weighs 60lb more than its 302 counterpart. It also has needle bearings on the cam, bronze sleeves in the lifter bores and the valley is polished. The bore is .070 over and the forged crank is .400 over making it 354"
I've had this car for 10 years and have won TTR in NASA-SE in 2008-2012. . It is very reliable with a TKO3550 transmission and a Torsen limited slip in a 1993 Thunderbird differential with no CV joint in the axles, all Spicer joints! Each axle is the same as a driveshaft in a one ton truck!
The suspension is dble adj Koni struts front and Carrera shocks rear. It has a Speedway Eng. adj. front swaybar and an adjustable rear bar. All arm links are aluminum with heim joints. The radiator is Fluidyne and always runs cool with a Stewart racing water pump. Oil pan is 7.5qts and has an Accusump attached for positive oil flow. Steering rack is from a VW Jetta as the OE box was too large and wouldn't allow making right hand turns!
Brakes are Panoz 4 piston front on 13" X 1.25 rotors and Outlaw 4 piston on 12" X 1.25 rear rotors with E brake still working. Has variable adjuster and a 400E master cylinder. Wheels are 9.5 X 17", 275/40 Hoosiers all around and the car has steel flares to cover them.
The car has been to Watkins Glen, Summit Pt. VIR, Mid Ohio, Pocono, Little Talladega, Charlotte M/S, Rockinham M/S, CMP, Roebling and Barber M/S Park. I may have forgotten some along the way....
Has to go or will be parted out, need the space and new car is finished.
Any question, just ask....car runs fine, just being replaced with a faster one.
This vehicle is located in Matthews NC 28105
