Seller Description

1998 M Roadster for sale 101,000mi on body, about 85,000 on engine/trans. With lots of modifications including turbocharger. I have owned this car for 9 years, it has been the most fun car I have ever owned. It holds its own at the drag strip, road course, or just cruising.
It started with a Technique Tuning Turbo Stage 1 kit, I changed a lot of components to make it a bit better.

2.8l M52, stock short block. Original S52 was destroyed years ago while developing the stand alone ecu.

Aftermarket Link G4 Xtreme engine controller, tuned by me. I am an engine calibrator by trade, it runs better than it did with the technique tuning tune . Tune 1 is a 93 octane tune that makes roughly 420whp at 9psi. The other is an E85 tune which runs 15psi and more timing, never dynoed with this setup, but it ran 11.5@124mph in the quarter mile.

External Oil Cooler, with Euro BMW Oil Thermostat.

Southbend Stage 2, no chatter, works excellent, nice and light clutch pedal.

TCKline Dual Adjustable Coilovers with adjustable camber plates.
Urethane Control Arm Bushings/Rear Diff Ear Bushing/Rear Subframe Bushing.

14" 2 piece lightweight DBA rotors.
6 piston calipers.

Car comes with the chrome wheels seen in the pics, the black wheels with Hoosier R6 tires are extra, I also have another pair of wheels with worn 315/17" Mickey Thompson tires, these are extra as well.
The only reason I am selling this car is I built an LSx engine I was going to swap into it. I can't bring myself to tear it apart again to do the swap, the car runs/drives really well in its current form. As a result I am selling and looking for another project car. Paint/Interior aren't perfect, I would put them 7 out of 10, price already reflects this so no low balls... As far as trades, I would only be willing to trade for a first gen Camaro/Firebird or a Chevelle.

It's a mish-mash of parts, but it seems like you're getting a lot for your money including big brakes, TC Kline D/As, a turbocharger and a hard top. I can't quite tell the color of the interior, but I'd guess black.
