Twin Turbo GS400 with V160 6 spd FS
Ok, Here's the deal, I have the opportunity to get a great deal on another toy, so Im putting my baby up for sale. If the other deal goes away, then my car will be off the market. I love the car, and if I dont get the chance to get the other car, then I will gladly keep this one in my garage.
The car is the only 1UZ twin turbo GS with the V160 6 spd in the country....that i know of anyhow.
When the car was first built by SRT it put down 569rwhp and 654rwtq. That was on 18lbs of boost, pump gas, and running a TH400 tranny. The TH400 tranny is said to rob roughly 30% power on the dyno. It now has the V160 6 speed, so those numbers should be higher now in theory.
The car itself has 77k on it, the rest of the build has roughly 3k miles, thats it. The car doesnt get driven as much as it should. Everything has virtually no miles, motor, tranny, suspension, wheels, tires, etc, etc, etc.....
I am the second owner of the car, and have owned it for most of its life. The car has never been in an accidnet and has no paint work other than the body kit.
Here is a complete spec sheet on the car, Im sure I'm missing some small things

I have over 30k in the motor, tt kit, and electronics. There's not much thats a bolt on affair when building a 1UZ, so its not cheap to do so. I have another 8k into the 6 spd conversion. 6 grand into the HRE's, etc, etc, etc....I have a ****load of money into this car, but I am only asking what I need for the next project.
I am selling for 25k, which is literally 1/3rd of what I have into the car.
I would also entertain selling the car minus the wheels and or stereo system and take some money off the asking price. You will need wheels to put back on it though. I do not have the stock wheels or system.
Feel free to hit me up with any questions......serious buyers only please.
Here is a link to a few pics of the car when the 6spd was completed. The only difference is itnow has a carbon fiber vented hood.
Here you go, I added some current pics form today with the carbon fiber hood. I was in between painting it or leaving it carbon, it is clearcoated and looks good.
The car is a bit dusty form sitting in my garage, but I didnt want to get into washing it before taking pics in this hot *** weather. You can get the idea. I was aksed for interior pics, so there are lot of them. The interior is 9.5 out of 10. The only reason it isnt a 10 is because there is some spots on the floor mats, and very very slight wear on the drivers seat bolster, and I mean very slight!! I havent got around to making the shift boot for the 6spd shifter, so its open by the shifter at the moment. This is an inexpensive task to complete, just havent got around to it.
IM UPDATING THE THREAD AND BRINGING IT BACK TO LIFE.
I stepped away from selling the car for the past month or so because I was still putting money into it trying to perfect it, in my mind anyhow. I wasnt crazy about the clutch set up, and didnt have any other options with this set up. It was strictly a race clutch, very tricky to drive. Since then, I have had a custom flywheel made that allows me to use any Supra TT clutch of choice, opening up all kinds of options. I went with a Clutchmasters Stage 4 smade to specifics for SOund Performance. This clutch is perfect. It is streetable and drives like a stock clutch, but it will also hold over 800 rwhp and tq.
With the new clutch set up, the car is now perfect, and exactly how I envisioned the 6 spd swap when I started this endevour. I have also had the center console finished with shift boot, etc, so its not just a hole now. It looks like it should look.
I dropped another $3500 into the car for the clutch, flywheel, and center console...parts, labor, etc, etc.. I am still aksing 25k, but my price is now FIRM! I will not sell it for a penny less than that, and its well worth it.
I will also entertain trades of equal value......specifically an LS430, SC430, or full size SUV of equal mileage and value......must be real clean. Im not limiting it to these vehicles, thats just what I would prefer to get into.

Very Sharp. If you don't mind sharing, what's the potential toy. Just curious if I have something similar to offer though I'm doubting it.

Unbelievable! One question. Can you spin 'em at 60? I tell you what, if I can sell my car for half that amount I would buy yours! Oh, last thing, can it legitimately pass inspection? I.e. are there any CELs?

No CEL's, I dont see why it wouldnt go through inspection. It might not pass Emissions due to no cat, but thats failry easy to get around, at least in Maryland.
Trust me, I wouldnt be selling it for this cheap if I didnt have another great deal in front of me. Im asking what I need basically, trying to get it to move before the other deal goes away. I have triple this into the car for sure.

Ok, im getting alot of what seems to be serioius inquiries on the car, so I put up a more serious FS ad. I added a full spec sheet on the build, rather than the cliff note version.
Also, Its been asked if I am willing to ship the car. The answer is yes, if funds are verified in my bank account and buyer pays for shipping, I will ship and work with the buyer to be around for a shipping company. I did this with a few motorcycles I have sold over the years, it worked out smoothly.

Very new to the scene I have been looking at this website for about a year now trying to learn as much as I can still looking for my dream GS.
Awesome car, I just sent a PM to TTurboPimp. Hopefully I did that right.

I have recieved alot of PM's on the car, all have been answered as of a few minutes ago.
I can tell you that if I didnt have another great deal lined up, I wouldnt be selling the car.
All part of the game I guess!

Dag Pimp say it ain't so, your price is a steal. Folks buy with confidence, the pics don't do justice. I've seen this car in person and have bought and sold stuff with the seller over the last few years with no issues.
I'm sure the potential new toy will be just as fun.

thanks bro......I was thinking about you the other day when I was cleaning my interior. I still owe you a few dollars for that Greddy shift ****! Are you gonna be around Ben's shop anytime in the near future? Im going by there this afternoon, I can give it to him to hold for you if that works for you.
