EDIT: THE VEHICLE IS SOLD
Over $20k worth of upgrades made to it, and would cost twice what I’m asking to accomplish piecemeal.
Happy to discuss its history and features in detail and go for test drives. I have all of its upgrades in a binder from the two previous owners, one of which is a good friend of mine who I bought it from.
We do have a lien on the car, with experience selling a few other cars with liens, so don’t be turned away by that fact.
Most recently, I have:
Replace shifter cables per dealership’s recommendation
replaced the Garrett turbo, as it was burning a bit of oil
reinstalled new windshield wipers, front/rear
Replaced tires and brake pads
Had a second key made
Bought this car in early 2018 from a buddy with the intent to make it my next supercar-slaying track beast (I drive/instruct for NASA AZ) but I had some life events and a divorce hit which have pumped the brakes on spending for that hobby for a while, and this car won't see any action from me, which is a travesty.
I knew this car for a couple of years before buying it and when my buddy finally listed it for sale I couldn't resist. I've watched this beast pull on 911 Turbos, Nissan GTRs, and even hold off a Mclaren at Firebird Main during HPDE sessions. It's the ultimate sleeper car. It's also the somewhat-rare 2-door no-sunroof combo, which saves about 200lbs. It dyno'd at 420WHP (see below) hence the 500CHP claim - very conservative for AWD.
It hasn’t been driven much the past 18 months, as I was holding onto it for a buddy who wanted to buy it, but he has undergone cancer treatment and has had to back out of purchasing it for obvious medical reasons. On the plus side, low mileage.
I have receipts for all upgrades and most services in a binder as well. My local servicing has largely been done at Tuning Gruppe in Mesa and We Dont Lift Racing in Tempe, with one visit to Camelback VW.
The list of upgrades includes:
APR Full Stage 3 GTX turbo kit
APR Carbonio Intake
APR FSI High Pressure Fuel Pump
APR 3" Downpipe and Exhaust w/ Black tips
APR Runner Flap Delete
South Bend stage 3 Clutch & lightweight flywheel
Spullen short shifter and cable bushings
Spullen spherical catch can
Sport RR 36way adjustable Coilovers w/ camber plates (removed, currently stock)
Epic Euro Tubular control arms w/ Hemi joints
Whiteline Front and Rear Sway bars
Whiteline swayer end links
HPA Haldex Controller
ECS slotted rotors
ECS steel braided rear brake lines
EBC yellow brake pads
APR rear wiper delete
Vent Boost Gauge w/ pod
18x8 Enkei pf01
I have taken the very rough sport suspension off (pictured) and put the stock suspension back on. I've kept the former, in case you'd like to re-swap them, but I recommend leaving it. Makes it a really fun daily driver now without shattering your spine or risking scraping undercarriage.
The car also has APR’s No Lift Shift feature, where you can keep the gas pinned while accelerating and shifting, and only put in the clutch. It’s spooky to do at first, but it hold boost safely (for about ¼ second before it gives up on you) and allows you to keep the turbo spooled while shifting, making it EVEN faster.
