Superlight package includes wide-track front suspension, 4-pot front brakes w/10” vented rotors, 4-point seat belt, quick-release wheel. Has race-safe honeycomb fuel tank. Custom Ford Zetec 2.0 – appx. 220 HP with custom hand-built manifold. Electromotive electronic management system includes dedicated Panasonic laptop for tuning. 5-speed, De Dion rear axle, aluminum radiator, FIA roll-bar and track-day brace, 3-way adjustable shocks, and more -- tonneau cover, set of custom racing wheels, etc. Happy to provide more details.

    Can I assume you are in Washington?

    Can you post some photos?

    We've had several people looking recently.

        Mike,

        Does the five speed (T9) box have its original gearing, or is it replaced with a close ratio kit?

          Where in WA are you located? By any chance is this Brian B's old car?

          Thanks,

            As far as I know it's a close ration gear box, but I'm not certain of that.

            I live in the San Juan Islands, but could get the car to the mainland if need be. Yes, it is Brian's car. I have a lot more info on it than I've put in the original post.

              If its a semi helical close ratio box first gear is good to about 50 or 55 mph. If stock Sierra ratios it's good to about 25 at ~6000 rpm.

              Semi helical is a bit noisier too.

                It's probably the original gear box. Thanks for the clarification.

                Note: I've corrected the original entry. It's an Electromotive management system, not Wintec II.
