1993 FD Single Turbo proven 200MPH Mile car
« on: March 29, 2021, 09:37:57 PM »
You may have been following my build thread over the last 3 years.  I purpose built this car to go over 200MPH at the Texas Mile.  My promise to my wife was that when I did, I would sell it.  Well, just hit 202.2 in a pretty low key pass.  I know it has more, but I'm a man of my word.

1993 FD

Reduced to $25,000.  I already bought my next project.  I have over $35K into the car, and this extra wiggle room will give new owner the ability to do the things to make it a daily driver.

Drivetrain:
6.0 iron block 408 stroker
Professionally built by Scroggins in Houston, TX. All forged internals gapped for boost.
Stock intake and 317 Heads.
Dutchworks 1000cc injectors
Rebuilt T56
Dual stage clutch
8.8 with new Trutrack and 3.27 gears

The build included:
- Hinson swap kit
- Custom radiator trunk mount cooling system
- Custom high horsepower driveshaft
- Coilover suspension
- Aluminum fuel cell with Magnaflow 750 split to both rails with teflon coated braided lines
- Huron speed turbo kit with huge T6 S475 turbo with billet wheel
- Samberg roll bar
- Ronin 8.8 conversion
- Carbon fiber dash with integrated laptop running HP tuners
- Full underbody aero
- Current dated 5 point harness
- Fire extinguisher
- Toyo Proxy 888 all the way around

Interior plastic is brittle, but there. 

I am typing this fast just to throw it up, bit there is so much more behind this car.  Read the Texas Mile 200 build thread for more. I will get pic up as soon as I get it out of the trailer and cleaned up from this weekends event.  This is a purpose build mile car.  Not meant as a daily driver, but could be.

To keep racing, I would:
Upgrade from 2 to 3 bar map sensor to allow more boost (currently 14, but it wants more)
Add electronic boost control to give more earlier
Upgrade brakes

To daily drive, I would:
Remove 4in wide intercooler and find a 2in wide one that would allow room for a set of the Ford Contour dual fans with shroud.  The car will overheat in traffic.  It needs more cooling.
Install the second seat (which I have new in packaging)
Integrate an AC system

PM me fore more info or to ask questions.

Asking $30,000.

Interior is all there.  Side mirrors removed for race, but I have them.  Carpet was laid in for pictures.  Can be tucked in panels better.  Front lights have a plastic cover that allows debris in.  For a daily driver, I would find a good set of bucket lights.  These suck at night.  Car is push button start and dash is direct connected to OBDII running HP tuners.  You can data log and tune from the from seat. 

Again, this is not ready to daily drive.  It will overheat at a stop.  Designed for straight mile race.  To daily it needs more fan.  Room in nose is tight.  Recommend to reduce size if turbo intercooler.  It is currently 4in deep, and you can get them 2in deep.  Add some huge fans and you should be good to go. 

There are some door dings and scratches, but over all paint looks good.  Toyos are practically brand new.

Let me know if you have specific questions or want closer pics of anything.
