Hi ive decided to keep it up for sale and glad no1 did buy it before as two weeks ago i found it had a problem,

Its headgasket is starting to show signs of going which is weird due to having a uprated gasket. :bawling:

£9500 as it is.

HKS 1.6MM Head Gasket

For security fitted is a Thatcham 1 insurance approved Clifford Concept 300 with Turbo timer built in and remote control start (Intellistart), I have the certificate aswell. It has a RAC Trackstar Tracker fitted but will need registering in your name and activating.

She is near on immaculate condition inside and out with some slight curbing on the wheels due to pot holes.

Cambelt was changed at 50356 Miles and she’s only done 58500 miles now with only around 9500 on the GT-ART rebuilt engine.

I had her fully under body sealed just before winter 2005 to keep her solid underneath.

Now for the bad bits!!
Well there basically isn’t any but I will tell you what I know!
There’s a small chip in the windscreen on the passenger side but it doesn’t affect the mot and also very occasionally when going very fast it may bite going from 3rd into 4th gear but been told that Redline heavy shockproof oil will stop that costing about £100.

Please come to view and test drive providing you’re full insured to do so.

She is fully HPI clear with even the original Japanese manuals

Can’t be any more honest than I have been so come and view as the pictures just don’t do the colour any justice.

07841485978

Thanks Brett

















It appears on the spa circuit in this dvd...

what does it cost to have the gasjet replaced?
It varies depending where you go and what you get done, hks gasket £285 2.00mm, greedy cambelt £95, £50 to get head skimmed and pressure checked, about £100 for the other gaskets and your time.. or a mechanic thats good and isnt too expensive like the one i use whos going to do it in 2 weeks if its not sold by then, which then im goin to keep it.

So the bargains only here for sale till then.

Well its starting to get pressure in the radiator and showing tiny drops of oil on the top of the water, it was block tested but that come up clear.

On fast driving over a ton for a period of time the temp guage reaches 3 quarters.:bawling:

Its not actually using any oil, its on full as it always has been, theres no water in the oil either, its like exhaust fumes gettin in there.
