    I don't believe in stock restos...who the hell wants stock? I'll leave those to the guys that don't enjoy driving them...

    I'll either 1) sell it as it sits, 2) sell it in running condition, 3) use it as my daily driver, 4) make it into my drag racer and daily drive the 85 SVO and sell the turbo LX.

    First up is to sell all the goodies I got with it to pay for the car ;) I'm keeping the 8.8 with 31 spline moser axles, cobra brakes, alum DS, coilovers, eibachs, 2 engines, 2 T5's, and 2 rebuilt big valve heads though:D

    ahhh you don't need need the moser 8.8. I've run the stock rebuilt 4.56 geared TC thats in the black car and its been fine. Hell I might even get another few races out of it. :p

    Who put that ugly SVO spoiler on that LX?
    BLASPHEMY. That guy needs an ass whipping. I'll donate money to fly someone out there and give it to him.

    I've got the SVO tailights sitting in the back seat, I'm not sure why he was running LX tails. Maybe to preserve the stockers.

    I'll be selling the hybrid turbo, a bunch of stock parts, 2 svo IC's, 1 powdercoated TC IC, Centerline wheels, and a bunch of other stuff I can't seem to remember right now.

    tealtiger93...you might be surprised how cheap I'd let the LX go...

    Well ... Considering you live in KS, I don't know how that would go. But PM me with a price when you're thinking about letting it go.

    Congrats I think. I alway's kinda pity you.

    I try to make my life not revolve around 2.3T's.

    I need a t-shirt that say's, "Yes, I own 2 2.3t's and work on 5 regularly - but I'm not addicted".

    --1 Set of Eibach Prokit Springs

    The front brakes are cobra 13 inch rotors/calipers/spindles. The whole assembly has been powder coated. The Calipers are Red, the spindles are black chrome, and the rotors are silver.

    The front suspension consists of Koni yellow struts, Eibach pro springs, and ’84 GT control arms. The control arms have brand new Steeda X2 ball joints and urethane bushings.

    The rear brakes are stock SVO. The assembly is also powder coated red/black chrome/and silver.

    The rear suspension consists of a 8.8 with 3.73 gears, HP Motorsports lower control arms, Eibach pro springs, and slot car racing adjustable upper control arms.

    There is also a ton of other stuff I haven't even found in the boxes yet...I'm still sorting through everything and seperating it into "keep" and "sell" piles...

    [Edit] I added a bunch more stuff to the above list...

    Thanks.

    Knowing you, I'm going to guess $3,000. Though I'm sure all of it is worth way more. Two motors eh? Keeping both?

    He told me he spent a little over 5 grand in the last 2 years on it, that includes buying alot of the stuff used on ebay.

    I don't know what I'll do with the second motor yet...I've already got 2 spares and know where two more are local to me...

    I'll let some more people guess what I paid for it before I say...

    ok seriously let me know about the cargo cover for the svo Mine's never had it.

    What a deal. I'll hold my guess until a little later but it was already an outstanding deal. I don't think you ever PMd me a price outright for the svo either. I'd still like to know that one too. Will it make it to Va? :p
