    Fair warning - I’ll probably come to my senses before the new year and keep it. If you refer/help sell this to a friend, family, co-worker I’ll give you $250 upon completed sale of the car.

    Adult owned - I’m the second owner. I purchased it two years ago with 3k miles on it. All mods have been on the car for about a year/4K miles on the setup. The car really is begging for someone who will take it to the track.


    2LT/Zf1 gives it the 19 in/20 in upgraded wheels and brakes.

    A&A Supercharger
    Kooks long tube headers with Green cats
    NGK plugs
    MSD wires
    NPP exhaust
    Highflow Air Filter
    AlkyControl single port Methanol Injection (uses windshield washer tank)
    Solar ported throttlebody
    Mild2Wild exhaust controller
    Nav with PDR
    Momento Front/Rear Dash cam
    Xpel front/rocker panels/ door sils/
    MGW shortshifter
    Jacks Racing upgraded mats
    CCS dynomatted truck and behind seats
    Legal 35% tint all the way around


    Conservatively tuned at 601HP to the wheels. RpM Motorsport did all the work and time. This car is a beast but again I don’t track it. No joy rides! Faster than a z06 for a heck of a lot less.

    $40k - I have a lot more into this but lets start here. If you are financing you will need to have cash because it’s over the KBB due to the mods.


    I have about 4 gallons of methanol left so basically I’ve used a gallon the entire time it’s been installed. For those that will ask... the spraying is progressive and only comes on during high boost to help protect the engine by keeping temps low so the car doesn’t pull timing. If you don’t want to deal with methanol then it’s a quick removal process of the controller and pump. It would sell quickly for $250. You would need to have the car retuned prior to doing this. A retune still RPM is $200 so you basically can remove the methanol for free if you don’t want it.

    Oh, I see....you'll text me to offer me some pistol racks or bar chairs but not the 'Vette?
    Some friend you are
    :p

    Folks, this car is well kept, looks soooo much better in person, and will rattle house windows going down the road.
    If you want a performer, this is it.

    I wouldn't be able to afford the first ticket and bail money!

    Beautiful ride there. If I were only younger...and single...and richer...and could rely on something other than a "tactical roll" to get in and out of that beast.

    Good luck with the sale sir. That sure looks like a ton of fun.

    I’ve texted some pics to a few folks who asked. You’re going to get me accused of being one of those people when folks find out.

    Oh i almost forgot. No hair products like Brylcreme or Lucky Tiger, or Mousses or hair gels. Also no colognes or body sprays. Oh yeah i almost forgot no Preparation H as it tends to leak through your clothes as you rectum releases after acceleration & the Gforces subside.

    Drove it to get inspected yesterday. Think I’m going to just keep both cars for now. I’m a few clicks of a shopping cart away from smaller wheels and bigger tires and suspension work. I have a problem!

    Get some good pads and fluid and let's take it to CMP. Might as well kill those tires before you upgrade.

    Nah - it’s definitely two different driving experiences though. Since I’m not traveling back and forth to work or taking clients out to lunch I’m able to enjoy them both cars.

    I never needed to sell it but I was trying to make space in the garage for other things that may come up. However, I think I’m going to have fun with the vette for a little while before I end up trading it in on a factory 5 Shelby replica or a trex or a maybe a c8 some day.

    Man o man I can’t believe this is still here..... this thing is stupid clean and the current setup offers more performance than you can purchase for 40k new today, being an amateur car enthusiast I know for a fact that someone can pick this up for the asking price and invest a modest amount of cash on a more aggressive tune, minor suspension upgrades and crush $100k sports cars (seriously), if someone that has the means to invest another 10-15k into this car, you would have a car capable crushing $250-$300k super cars, for a $50-$60k investment..... that’s honestly nearly beyond belief when you really think about it, one minute you’re picking up groceries and on the way home you’re eating Ferrari’s & Lamborghinis alive.

    Thanks! I asked RPM to be extremely conservative on the tune. Similar setups with meth make 680-690 rwhp. Super fun to drive as well. I only drop the price to where it’s at because if I keep it any longer I’m going to put it under the knife again and drop another good chunk into it. This saves me from that!
