    I just wanted to update everyone on a few items for the car. For the hp numbers, the last dyno reading was around 475 with 12lb of boost on e85. The car is set up with a flex-fuel system so it can run on pump gas as well. The car was last tuned by Mspek Performance in Denver. They could have turned the car much higher but the current owner did not want them to.

    @burnrubr I can check if there's a sheet with current hp numbers. To my knowledge, the last results were just shy 500hp. The claimed hp in the listing states that it is built for up to 800hp.

    Lurking here, any dynosheet showing type of fuel and boost level to achieve the claimed WHP? t y

    @Craignyc They are covers that go over the mirror brackets on this inside just above the Interior door pannels. They were carbon fiber covers that broke off. However, we the factory trim pieces that cover that area.

    I can’t tell from the pictures which pieces are missing from the door panels. Can you please be specific. Thank you

    @Lottacars There is a contact seller button at the top of the listing.

  • Lottacars (registered bidder) 3 weeks, 5 daysago

    @revhardmotors OK how do I reach you?

  • revhardmotors (seller) 3 weeks, 5 daysago

    @Lottacars The work was all done over the last few years by the previous owner. The current owner has consigned the car to us. Mofab in Parker Colorado did all the engine work and tuning. The car has had about 3000 miles since the build.

    Happy to show the car when you get to Colorado!

  • Lottacars (registered bidder) 3 weeks, 5 daysago

    Also when was all of the work done? If you are a dealer, is it on consignment? How many miles on the new engine and where was the mechanical work done?

  • Lottacars (registered bidder) 3 weeks, 5 daysago

    Very nice build. I'll be in Denver for 5 days. Can I see it somewhere?
