Garage Kept Turbo Charged, All Wheel Drive DSM
I dont know if any of you would be interested in this but it's the only thing holding me back from working on my truck. Factory this car came with 210HP but it has some moderate upgrades. It's definitely a quick little car (easily low 13's as it sits, 12's with tuning). Anyhow, drop me a line if anyone i interested, my number and info is below the pics.
flaws on the car:
Oil pan and under body, NO LEAKS
First is a picture with the valve cover off to show how clean this engine is inside. the engine has only seen fully synthetic AMSoil for many years and was recently switched over to Mobil 1 fully synthetic for ease of availability.
I can be reached at 269.357.4372 - Josh
Price: $8500 Firm unless i get to keep mods such as: the GSX wheels, cd player, strut bars, gauges, or anything else easily removed.
Here is a video of a quick test drive.
1995 Talon TSi chassis Black exterior, black/grey leather interior. 5 speed, All wheel drive. Factory LSD in rear. Eprom ECU, Dual piston calipers up front.
No oil or coolant leaks, compression tests perfect. garunteed. Garage kept in winters, hasnt seen rain or snow for years.
The engine - removed from a 98 GST with 90k actual miles on it, victim of a rear end collision. 97-99 engines are less plagued by crank walk issues due to the revision of the oiling system.

Ok, i need to clear up an apparent issue with this car. I bought this car from a good friend of mine and when i got the car i was given a gauge cluster reading 77,000 miles on it. I installed the cluster without any hesitation as i was under the impression it was right and the car is clean enough that it was more than possible. At 83,000 miles i put the car up for sale. After a car fax was ran it showed the milage being off and that the last known milage was almost 99,000 back in 2003.
Hold onto your shorts because it gets a little confusing.
I called the previous owner who as i said was a good friend of mine and he told me the car had 96,000 when he sold it to me, i replied with that wasnt possible, i knew he only drove it in the summers and on weekends, but that certainly wouldnt cause it to have LESS miles. i rechecked the milage with carfax and called him back, then he came clean and said he wasnt sure if what he had done was illegal or not.
This is what happened.
He bought the car in 2003 with almost 99,000 on it, at 100,000 miles he swapped in the gauge cluster from his wrecked DSM that had 80,000 miles on it. He never planned to sell this car so it was just for his own pleasure of seeing less than 100,000 miles on it. Then when that odometer reached 96,000 miles he got a nonturbo gauge cluster that read 77,000 miles and shortly after he parked it and started converting the interior to a 97-99 black and started doing mods to it, I got the car mostly torn apart because he wasnt finished and had to move down south for school. I finished putting it together, and installed the only gauge cluster i had which read 77,000 miles. I now have almost 84,000 miles on that cluster.
In all reality the chassis has about 123,000 miles on it. I installed the engine from a 98 GST that i know has 90k miles on it. At this point all anyone can do is go on my word and check my math. But i assure everyone that to the best of my knowledge the actual milage is 123,000 miles. Michigan titles have the option for: Actual Milage, Not Actual Milage and Exceeds Mechanical Limits. However after a car is 10 years old in michigan (correct me if im wrong) the secretary of state no long checks milage on title transfer. Therefore if you do a car fax on my car you'll see no milage listed when i transfered the title. Had they checked the milage there would be a milage discrepency present.
The vin is 4E3L54FXSE04326
My price is not changing and is firm, regardless of the miles on this vehicle it is in outstanding aesthetic and mechanical condition. I expect no less than my asking price of 7500 with GSX wheels or 7000 with GST wheels.
I apologize for any issues i may have caused with anyone, i have great seller reputation everywhere and i would not sell a car knowing of an issue like this without informing the interested party.

still for sale! guy came to check it out and pick it up, after finding the compression to be perfect, it to have no leaks anywhere and and the turbo to have no shaft play, his 'mechanic' asked me to come down on the price. I said no, my prices are firm and the car is worth it. he decided to go home and sleep on it and decided it wasnt a good idea for him to buy a DSM until he sells his mustang. Sooooooooooooooooooooo someone buy it :) willing to do partial trades + cash, assuming the trade interests me.

Partial trade as in which way? You add cash or buyer adds cash.I have a modded Jeep but it is worth significantly more, although I have ALWAYS wanted a AWD GST. I would be willing to trade my 00 TJ if you would put cash on top of it, or, if you happen to have a 2g spyder you would want to throw in too, I would take that as some of the cash.
