I traded two vehicles (worth about 3k a piece) and 950$ cash.

The car has the original engine with 79k built block, full bolt ons way too much to list, V2 vortech at 8lbs. Has 400rwhp as it sits on the street tune. The race tune is almost 600rwhp.

The paint is awful on the car, seats and carpet are rough, it's a daily driver for now, and runs excellent. It's scary fast. I've stayed with new 5.0 Coyotes, and I've beat a Porsche Carrera S, challenger RT, 350z etc. It's the fastest 2v I've ever seen.

Omg what happened to 97-14B? I'm almost positive that was Mark Moses old car back in early mid 2000's. That car was beautiful and lived a pampered life back then. I know bc I use to give him a boost/jump when we met at car shows here in Ohio lol. The car wasn't driven a lot back then. Mark owned an Indian, big dog chopper, American ironhorse chopper and Triumph dealership called Northcoast Choppers aka North Coast Motorcycle in Rossford Ohio. Awesome guy and babied all his toys. He currently owns Indian Motorcycle Charlotte. I believe he sold the car before he left Ohio. I lost touch with him several years ago and honestly failed to keep in contact with him unfortunately

Stumbled on your reply about the droopy splitter being easily fixed. Seems I have seen a post on that a long time ago but have not been able to find it again. If you could give a description of the process I'd appreciate it.

Thanks,

This is the link to how I fixed mine. There is a old style fix that involves a strap to the bumper support that I think is cheesy. I have repaired two this way with no issues. Just make sure to use the Locktite construction adhesive that lists plastic as one of the products it adheres to. The expensive SEM body epoxy is crap.
