Price Drop!!! New Info!

I dropped the price to $8500 FIRM, because I feel like I'm giving someone the opportunity to have an amazing machine!

The build quality is solid, and most of the work was done at AMS in Chicago, a DSM Wiseman, and the original owner Chris. Must give credit due where credit is deserved.​

I have owned the car since October 2010. I have put around 4000 miles on the car since owning it, mostly highway. I left Active Duty to pursue my education in Economics. I am still a Staff Sergeant in the National Guard, but my income just isn't what it used to be.

Even though this car is one of the most reliable DSM's I've ever owned, as with any high-power car it costs money to maintain.

Since owning the car I've replaced or added(all with receipts):
  • OEM Water Pump
  • OEM Timing Belt
  • Belt Tensioner
  • OEM Serpentine Belt
  • Left and Right Rear Axles
  • Surface Ground Manifold (Reseal After Minor Warping)
  • MAP Oil Return Line
  • O'Reilly Rebuilt Alternator
  • O'Reilly Rebuilt Starter
  • Reinforced Welds on Transmission Mounts
  • OEM Passenger Side Door Handle (Snapped in the Cold)
  • New OEM Throttle Position Sensor
  • Seafoamed after TB Cleaning then:
    [*]Oil Changed with Royal Purple 10W40 and K&N Oil Filter
    [*]New BPR7ES Plugs (Gapped to .028")
    [*]AWD Fluid Change using Redline Fluids
    [*]Full 100-Point Inspection to include Engine Compression Test (165 across the board w/ FP2 Cams)​

Virtually all modifications have receipts. I will give the buyer a full binder full of receipts.

As with All DSMs there are a few issues...

  1. AEM Engine Management System is an amazing, but that being said there are a couple disadvantages. Here are a couple I have experienced:
    • The first issue is with AEM EMS the cranking time is increased. The cranking time is only bad when the car is really cold (less than 32 degrees). The car will eventually fire up but it takes a toll on the starter. My solution was to keep it in the garage overnight in the winter, which worked great. The car starts up just fine outside in the snow, it only seems to be after sitting overnight. I would recommend purchasing a TriggerDisc, which was designed specifically to fix that problem. Although I've been told that the cranking issue can be solved through tuning, but I haven't had the time to take it to AMS or Import Lab.
    • The next issue is common with AEM EMS owners. Occasionally the car will die immediately after start-up (when hot). The car will start right back up, and if you give it some gas and drive away the car acts like nothing happened. It occurs because AEM EMS thinks the Throttle Position Sensor is negative (-),thanks to electrical interference. I have pretty much fixed this issue through fine tuning the Throttle Position Sensor through AEM.
  • One of the reasons for the price drop was that I just don't have the time to replace the headliner. I pulled the old one out, and have the spray and black headliner material from Jo-Ann fabric. If you convince me I may replace it.
  • Left Door Handle Sticks, even after OEM Door Handle. I'm sure this is as easy as pulling the doors apart and messing with the cables. I again just don't have the time to fix it.
  • No Power Door Locks. I pulled the fuse for the door locks because of the infamous power drain. I had this issue in my last DSM. There are two solutions; either trace the wiring and figure out where the wire is grounding itself down on, or replace the actuators with aftermarket ones. The manual locks work fine though.
  • The cable from under the dash to the hood doesn't pop the hood anymore. The hood has to be unlatched from the Front of the Car, which I'll show you. I am including SPARCO Hood Pins which need to be installed due to the Carbon Fiber hooding "floating" at high speed. Which is common for CF Hoods to fly up and damage cars.
  • The Dual Fuel Pumps cause the gas gauge to read inaccurately. The extra pump displaces the fuel, which makes the gauge seem like there is more fuel. However, once the car is around 1/4 tank the Gas Light comes on. When the Gas Light comes on there is just over 2 gallons remaining in the tank. I've tested it a couple times.

Car operates on 2 different AEM EMS Tuning Maps. A "Street" Tune using 93-Octane, and a "Race" Tune utilizing "Rockett Fuel," which is 100-Octane. The 100-Octane tune was built by AMS after hours of Dyno time. Starting from 18psi and working up to 29.5psi, the car was able to put down 505.15AWHP and 368.73AWTQ @ 8250 RPM. Those numbers were produced despite hotter Intake Temperatures due to the length of time on the dyno. AMS wouldn't allow the boost pressure to go any higher for fear of detonation on 100-Octane. With larger injectors and E85 this car could be a daily driver pushing 40+PSI and considerably more horsepower to the wheels!!!

I have receipts for virtually everything that has ever been done to this car, totaling in excess of $30K. I just want her to go to someone who will take care of her and bring out her full potential.

I have only ran it on its "Race" (100Octane) Tune ONE time since owning the car. The amount of power is insane. Somewhere between the G-Force, the 9000RPM Shift Points, and the Rocket Like acceleration that make you realize this is one HELL of a machine!!!


Due to the Twin Disc Clutch I will not allow anyone to drive the car unless they either have cash in hand, or can prove to me that they are wanting and willing to buy it. (NO Free Rides, only serious buyers who know what they are doing.)

If you have any questions feel free to PM or call me at (765) 215-4934. My name is Zach.
