Starts up fine.
So far I have only took off the bad rim and cleaned the interior up. Going to re-install the rear seats and insulation tomorrow, along with the wing.
Not sure what I am going to do with it yet. So please, no PM's on part inquires.

That was one hell of a deal. Are you thinking about swapping the turbo setup atleast?

Chad, yeah I been thinking about putting a stock turbo on it with stock injectors, and sensors. Then selling the turbo kit.

Also found out it has a ACT 6 puck with only 4k miles on it. ($650+ new) Has a like new Walbro 255 and he gave me his old Walbro 255 that had 20k on it, he thought it was bad but it had to do with his tune. So stoked, but so much to do and little time.

Shipping a bumper to PA will be pretty pricey and probably won't be worth it.I will keep you in mind though. I really wish it was silver because my rear bumper has some bad scratches on it.

WHy can't you fix it up and use it like it is? Doesn't look like it's too much work to do so?

I have a Walbro 255LPH with 20k And a Mopar Stage 3 190LPH with 12k miles that I can ship out ASAP. LMK. :thumbup:

RADARsx 2.0:
Quoted at $13k to fix it..which totaled it out.
The entire strut tower got moved back a little bit and the other pictures show the other damage. I guess I could get another quote since that quote including a new rims, tires, fender, side skirt, hood and paint of course. Just see how much it would be to get the structural damage fixed. Hmmmmm Probably still not be worth it, but I could give it a shot.

Don't you know how to do most of the work, and have a place to do it? maybe even a friend or two that have skills. I just know that yeah the tower you say is moved but damn..that quote is just a little high in my mind.

But either way..it's a good deal.

Nice find man. Either way, you got a good deal there.


When I see stuff like this it makes me want to give up on my car and just wait for SRT prices to drop. ... or RX-8 prices...

Canada had first dibs since he messaged me in my other off-topic thread.
I do have a Mopar Stage 3 190LPH though.

Got the wing on today, trunk carpet in, took off front fascia, hood, thermostat housing, passenger headlight, Lower pressure pipe, catch can, Boomba checkvalve (went on my car) Factory black power steering cap, (Mine was yellow :() Inspected the damage some more. Drivers LCA is little bent, ball joint boot torn, swaybar endlink bent.

Would it be a good idea to get a battery charger for it? Since the car will sit for a while I don't want the battery to die since it will not be going through its power cycle. How long do I have usually?

Can probably pick up a trickle charger pretty cheap just to keep it topped up.

I would be curious what a body shop would charge you just to straighten it, nothing else, as I am sure you could do all that.

I want the 255 and FPR, sent you a PM.

I'd get a battery tender for it, better to be safe than sorry.

AGP 50 Trim .63AR 18k miles on it. Turbonetics WGA and BOV.
Not looking to take much off as of now. Waiting on salvage title first.

As for the trickle charger..Trying to find a cheap one. My friend has one that was $45 from Wal-Mart, does a great job.

I got this one from Wal-Mart for $20 odd dollars.

Should I keep it plugged in all the time, not sure how much energy it consumes?
Well I put some things I took off and put it back together. Started her up. It started up perfect and ran beautiful! :D :D

Car wrecked 10/18/10 and he filled it up before the wreck. :( Might need to get some Stabil or some how siphon it out and put it in my car. :lol:

I also met up with him today to pick up his DiabloSport Predator he forgot to give me. It has quite a few tunes on it for the red car of course. I can't sell that because I would have to unlock it which means bringing it back to factory settings.... Car will run like crap. Vacuum line re-route, Stock PCM, big turbo, 750cc injectors, Walbro 255...yeah.

Will have the title in 2-3 weeks. Until then not much is going to happen. Just more cleanup.

Yes, you want to keep it plugged in all the time. It'll charge the battery until it's full then shut off until it drops a bit, then charge up to full again, etc. It shouldn't take much power at all really.
