    2011 Grey E92 6MT ZCP supercharged w/Gintani Built Motor

    I'm selling my 2011 Competition Package 6MT car. It is in excellent condition.

    Vitals:
    • 6MT
    • 8,300 miles total, 2,300 on new engine
    • Space Grey Metallic
    • Black extended leather
    • Premium Package
    • Competition Package ZCP
    • 19" Wheels
    • iPod integration
    • Sat Nav
    • Moonroof
    • Lojack
    • Passport 9500ix installed


    The car has had some work done by Gintani, and is nearly a stage 3. It is a built motor that has been sleeved with forged connecting rods and pistons. It runs a lower compression ratio as well, allowing for more boost than I have it at now. Presently it is at 9.5 lbs of boost, and makes 515rwhp on the DynoDynamics.

    I don't plan to add the final piece of the puzzle which is the Fuel System (they'll charge ~$3K for it). With this piece, you should be able to take it up to 16lbs of boost according to the Gintani guys and perhaps 800hp+.

    I also have on it a Gintani Full Race Exhaust. I have their high-flow cats installed, but I also have the Cat Deletes which I will include in the sale. The exhaust sound is the greatest thing in the world and I will miss it.

    Video of it before the supercharger went on. Note this is with the Cat Deletes. My camera misses out on the bass it produces:



    The next one is when it was being dynoed. Note this is before the engine rebuild. It is currently 10hp less now than in this video:



    The car has been garage kept, non-smoker. It runs fine, sounds amazing, and is a real head-turner while maintaining a stock look and feel.

    The car has about $35K - $40K in upgrades: The built motor is between $30K and $35K, plus the exhaust is $5K. New, with taxes and all, the car cost $73K.

    As an FYI, the KBB value is ~$60K, (but they didn't have 2011 ZCP as a choice). Add in the mods and the fact that it has a built motor with only 2K miles on it and this car is a real find.

    I want to move on to something else that is pure stock, probably some form of 911. Note the car is running fine now; it just took a while to get there - there have been some growing pains along the way.

    Pictures will help.

    Also, youtube videos automatically embed but you need to post the whole link from the youtube video page.

    Let me try to explain why I am selling the car.

    There were growing pains and problems getting it to where it is. It is a built motor after all, and its still relatively new - I was on the bleeding edge. It has been a 5 month process to get it where it is today. And quite frankly I am exhausted with the process. I have developed an emotional response to it. Let me relay this with a story:
    Years ago my parents built their dream house. It didn't go well - the contractor was a cheat, my parents had liens against the house, all kinds of bad memories. Once we moved in, they couldn't wait to get out. They damned near got a divorce due to the stress involved. There was just too much bad emotion wrapped up in it.

    My situation is similar, although certainly to a lesser degree. Even though it is working well, I want to move on and dump the emotional baggage. As for timing? I figure its best to sell it while its new to get the most $ out of it. I am also considering waiting a bit before I sell, because it is a hell of an awesome thing to drive. Its not an easy decision for me.

    I guess stress causes bad luck in general, same with me what ever stresses me in the beginning ends up being $#@! in the end.

    Wow, hot car man! Sorry to hear you aren't 100% happy with the car after so much money has been invested. I remember feeling the same about my IS300 but once it was gone I really felt sad and wished I would have kept it. The good news is you can now find a new buyer for your baby who is completely satisfied with the raw power your vehicle produces! GLWS or whatever you decide to do bud!

    I'd like $85K. Its a 2011, 2K miles on motor, less than 1 year old, and has freakish potential with just a small enhancement remaining.

    It's a process and it takes time. I'm just glad you are happy and the car is just about where you need to it to be (and it should be).

    I don't think people really understand how complicated these low compression builds are. They are making progress, slowly but surely. This is also why I'm not bummed my transmission build has taken so long as there are still things to figure out.

    You know they say, one bad thing never caused a divorce and there were already other problems. But imagine if he has owned a lot of built cars in the past....lol.

    No thanks - I'm keeping it. Besides, I had an E46 M3 for 7 years before the E92, and I can't shift the mercedes
