|Purchased new. Only driven in two or three winters. Since then stored indoors for winter and no longer driven in bad weather. I only commute to work on occassional nice days, driving a few hundred miles a year (hit 70k miles in 2010, 75k miles in 2019).
Please read through the modifications list below. I took great care to increase the performance and handling while maintaining reliability. Transmission has Quaife diff ($1200), hardened input shaft ($500), billet flexplate ($400), etc.
This car was raced at the drag strip and also autocrossed from 2001 to 2005. It has not been raced at the track since 2005 and the recent transmission overhaul was done after I stopped racing.
Best 1/4 mile time was 12.516 @ 109.97 MPH.
Tuned for 93 octane. With higher boost (smaller SC pulley) and timing changes for more power, may require higher octane. But it has been tuned for street driving on 93 since I stopped racing.
GM Performance Parts strut and spring package features adjustable struts. I no longer adjust them, leaving them set for slightly stiffer street driving. The adjustment knob has become difficult to turn. Car is a little lower (~1") than stock.
The block and heads are original and the engine has never been removed from the car. The engine previously had a ZZP VS cam before switching to a more aggressive XP cam. Camshaft was swapped with engine in car. Transmission was removed with engine suspended.
I have everything that originally came with the car (keys, fobs, manual, engine cover, front license plate cover, etc.) and extensive notes on maintenance and all work done on the car as well as many pictures of the work in progress.
No accidents on the road, but vehicle needed collision work twice. When still almost new, a Pontiac dealer damaged the driver door. The dealer replaced the door. In 2003, vehicle hit a guardrail causing cosmetic damage to the front passenger wheel, fender, front fascia and hood. Wheel was replaced and other parts were fixed/replaced and painted. The only mechanical damage was that wheel's tie rod. I have pictures of the damage.
Based on the last timing chain and tensioner replacement when the XP cam was installed at 57k miles, the timing chain and tensioner may need to be replaced again around 85k-90k miles. Due to the stronger valve springs needed for the high lift camshaft, there is increased wear on the plastic tensioner/dampener. I have pictures of it from the previous replacement.
I have many spare parts that I am selling or offering to buyer of vehicle at deep discount.
