It's unfortunately time to sell my track toy, simply because I underestimated how much time having two kids takes away from hobbies. I purchased the car in June 2015 and primarily used it for HPDE's, the intention was to build it over time. It's a solid track car as it stands now (minus maybe a LSD). It's also a strong base for anyone that wants to build a full-out racecar or a highly capable HPDE car. I worked with Shaikh at FatCat Motorsports on suspension tuning: our approach was to allow the car to handle as natural as possible as it stands, but geared towards running with aero.

Most of the mods are listed below. Highlights: 2.5L Duratec motor (from 2011 Ford Fusion w/ <50k miles, have documents), full roll cage built by TC Design, FatCat Motorsports KBO coilovers, tuned by Moto-East, with ECUTek cable included.

Chassis:
Clean title
~190k
~2250lbs with ½ tank of gas

Engine:
Duratec 2.5L (40k, have documents)
Moto-East Intake
Moto-East ECUTek tune
Skunk2 Header
GWR catback with Roadster sport II (passed Laguna seca 90db days without lifting)
GWR 70D poly motor mounts for 2.5L (lowers back to normal height)
Complete A/C delete

Suspension/Brakes:
FCM KBO Coilovers
RX8 rear sway bar
DTC70s front/rear pads
centric rotors all around
GWR Brake Duct kit

Interior/Exterior:
Interior stripped
Sabelt GT140 seat
Schroth Racing 6 point harness
Works Bell Short hub
Works Bell Rapid Quick release
Personal Neo Grita steering wheel
TC Design full Roll cage (with additional welds/gussets to A-Piller for additional chassis rigidity)
DGMotorsports race hardtop (cracked plexiglass, not too difficult to pick a sheet up from Home Depot and trace out another one. It's behind the driver so not visible while driving)

Please note the car is registered as non-op and cannot be legally driven on the street due to roll cage and lack of airbags. It will need to be towed home unless you live a few blocks away :)
Also the body is in decent shape, but not perfect. There is a sizable dent on the driver side rear fender flare from the previous owner. I had intended to put fender flares on.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
