So lets get started. As a member of ************ I have made many friends. Well this one belonged to one of my page friends. I believe he may be a member here as well.
He had purchased the car for a great price and almost immediately took the motor out and made some modifications. LE1 heads, and a custom grind cam from LE. When he took the motor apart, he found heavy sludge build up... so he did his best cleaning out the motor. He enjoyed the car for a while, including participating in my dyno event last year. The car put down 367 rwhp through the built CPT transmission and stall.
Unfortunately he had parked the car a while ago fearing some damage in the top end. Well while it was parked, life began to happen and he began selling some parts off of the car. The heads, and other odds and ends were sold, and the car was parked away for a later day.
Well life continued to happen and the time came to sell the car. He posted it up, non running for 1500 bucks...
Well with the Imp SS being on my "bucket list" I purchased the car within 7 minutes of him posting it.
We made a deal, that I would purchase what it needed and have the parts delivered to him.
So off to ordering I went. new upgraded LE1 heads... scorpion rockers... good pushrods... ewp... etc etc etc.
Well as part of our deal, he began reassembling the car, till finally he fired it up.
He said it fired right up and he sent me a video...
************ IS my drug...
