1990 SC for sale
« on: December 12, 2008, 04:45:43 PM »


I am asking 1,800$ for it, which, naturaly, does not begin to cover what i have in the car.

What maintanence work i have done to it since i had it:
New head gaskets
new thermostst (180 degree)
new rear brakes pads and rotors
new front brakes pads and rotors
Spark plugs
installed new pressure switch on the tevis unit
brand new starter, not a re-man

Performance additions
ARP headstuds
10% OD pulley
Screamin deamon Coil Pack
Live Wires
Flowmaster Catback exhaust
gutted cats
9" cone filter
Shift Kit
And seems to have a Magnuson ported blower, the blower case has a magnuson label on it and has the characteristic louder whine of the ported bloweres. just changed the fluid.
also i have a 10" electric fan for the Charged air cooler that i haven't installed yet. would be included along with a relay and fuse block if i have not installed it at the time of sale

the car makes 15+ PSI of boost. i would imagine the addition of a decent intake, MAF and throttle body would increase it

The current mechanical problems
seems to have alot of blow by... its an older engine that makes alot of boost...
LR caliper WAS hanging up.... doesn't seem to anymore
Needs upper control arms.... i have not owned an MN-12 that hasn't
dipstick half broken off in tube, needs new tube and stick.

Cosmetic problems:
Hood is dented, i have another, it is black but the paint is not perfect..
car was re-painted at some point, its not  the best paint job, looks good from far away though
vaqrious dents, scratches. body is pretty straight though, no real rust

also the intirior is nice, it is black cloth. no tears in seats. alittle faded but still pretty nice, dash is cracked, looks like whatever damaged the hood went through the windshield and into the dash (so yes, it has a new windshield) has an aftermarket radio, flip up dvd player, rear aux input. aftermarket speakers and previous owner installed tweeters and an amp... did not do a good job witing any of them up and would therefors recomend rewireing the sound system....

also has a oil leak from the front of the motor, i'm trying to track it down now


i am not in a hurry to get rid of it, but it is for sale...

Pictures would help???   :bowa:
The 5.4 swap has been called a bad idea, and considered an underpowered considerable waste of time, since 2007.

Nice to see that most donít think that anymore.

Bump: I want this thing gone, i can't afford to insure it right now, and i just want it gone! i would like to get $1,000 OBO for it, runs good, has an oil leak from the front of the motor, possibly timing cover. tell your friends, must go! dont care waht you do with it to be honest, just don't want too look at it.... if i don't get a buyer i am going to take the good parts off and scrap it!
