NEW PRICE $9500
. The motor alone will cost you close to $10k. I've created hyperlinks to show you the parts that I have on the car but the biggest one is the engine build from Karl's webpage. Sorry the pictures aren't really in any sort of order.
Black 1996 Impala SS with 115,537 miles. I've owned this car for almost 14 years as I bought it when I lived in Missouri and then moved to Illinois where the title shows when I registered it. The car is garage kept and wasn't driven in the snow while I owned it. It's originally from Morton, IL where I purchased it from the original owner.
The car has a Karl Ellwein 396cu.in. motor BUILD PAGE
, Advanced Induction 200cc
GM heads w/ 1.6 Comp Cams Ultra Pro Magnum rockers and dual valve springs. Advanced Induction custom ground cam based on Yank 3600 stall & 4.10 gears. Email me for specific specs and I can provide the cam card to the new owner.
Also has Advanced Induction ported intake
manifold and accommodates my twin 58mm TPIS
I'm running Trick Flow 36# injectors, Clear Image Automotive Gen II Tri-y's
into Dan's catalytic converters that mates to a 2.5" Spintech X-pipe with 2.5" inlet/3" outlet Pro Shootout mufflers into 3" stainless steel Clear Image over the axle pipes and Magnaflow resonators.
The transmission was built by Chuck at Finish Line Transmission and is a level 4
.I'm running an aftermarket trans cooler that you can find HERE
. It's supported by a Mike Harris transmission cross member. Trans is mated to a Denny's aluminum driveshaft. I just had the rear end gears replaced after 7 years of service so the ring and pinion are brand new while the Eaton Posi has maybe 5000 miles on it. I was starting to get a howling sound from the gears meshing towards the outer part of the ring and not in the center.
The car is lowered on Hotchkis springs with supporting Bilstein 1104/0929 shocks. Rear upper and lower control arms are BMR but don't remember who made the sway bars. I think the rear is the HO sway bar from back in the day that is 1.5" solid bar that is straight across.
The front end steering components are from PPM and the only updated front a-arm is the upper which is from Speedtech
....never got around to buying the lowers.
The body and paint are about a 6 out of 10. I've had the front bumper, rear bumper, and spoiler all painted about 10 years ago because of the peeling clear coat most of us have dealt with. The car was driven so it has some rock chips on the front and I dropped a can of something onto the hood a while back that made a dent.....you can see it in the pictures I took.
The first year I owned the car it was broken into in St. Louis and had a quarter sized hole punched just below the driver side door lock. This was patched at the body shop and you can see a paint drip on the front spear where they did a crap tape job. Other than that, it's the only time it's been to a body shop because I haven't wrecked it.
Tires are newer with about 1000 miles or less on them. They are Nitto NT555 275/40/17 and sit on factory powder coated satin black rims. The powder coating is less than two years old and there isn't any curb rash on them.
I kept the interior stock except for installing black carpet, an aftermarket pioneer cd player, and a billet shift know that you push down in order to get it in gear.
Here goes a list of the bad stuff, just being honest about what you're getting. One of the pictures below shows a rip in the backseat. I don't remember how long ago it happened but it's there.
Also, the computer keeps throwing a cylinder 3 misfire. I had this car road tuned by Bryan Vorphal who was/is a member of the Chicago based club The HERD. Real time laptop tuning shows that #3 isn't misfiring but #1 and #2 were logging misfires. Maybe this is an opti related issue but when you hit the go pedal there isn't any hesitation all the way up to the 6200 rpm shift point.
The trunk light doesn't work and the passenger side panel under the dash sags a little.
