Episode 9 of Launch Control is out covering the NEFR…
Your 2002 is slow. Sure it might have an S14 swap and boast the power to weight ratio of a M3 but its still slow. Oh yours is street legal? So is this one! And its rocking a small block Chevy, a ford 9″ and Mickey Thompson’s out back. Your 2002 is slow. You need this one. $15k.
The original car was a 1975 BMW 2002 and the owner says no expenses was spared when the building of this car. Its fitted with a 406 Small Block Chevy with 350 rods with a 400 Crank. Hopefully that means something to you. Im a BMW guy. It also has some other engine bits that I do recognize. 10:1 flat top pistons with ported heads, a 2.02″ intake/1.60″ exhaust, variable lifters, a Crane Cam 232/244 duration with .488 lift @ .05″ It also features a tunnel ram intake with dual Holley 450CFM double pumpers w/o choke.
Custom full length headers with Magnaflow dual exhaust out the back, SS tips
Aluminum radiator with electric shrouded fan and a Electric water pump
Ignition is provided by a MSD 6AL system with MDS Billet distributor with on-dash timing control and on-dash rev limit.The transmission is a Turbo 400 TCI manual/automatic with 3500 RPM stall torque converter.The rear end is a narrowed Ford 9″ rear end with 4:10 gears, and fitted with a Detroit locker and 31 spine axles. The car has a custom fiberglass wide-body, custom split hood, and custom rear deck lid and the original dash and door panels are in great shape.
Competition Engineering ladder bar rear suspension with adjustable coil over shocks handle the Mickey Thompson 12.5 x 15.5 x 29.5 rears and Nitto’s on front all on Cragger Street Stars. The chassis is held together with a custom tubular frame, 6 point roll cage and 5 point racing harnesses. Additionally there are 1×2 matrix of brace tubes throughout (from firewall to rear panel made of thin wall tubing) and 1 x 3 heavy wall main rails from the rear suspension to under motor mounts.
Custom front strut suspension with 4 piston calipers and vented rotors. Fuel cell, manual fuel pump, rear mount battery with console shutoff.
There are also numerous other boxes of interior parts that come along with the car. The car has a clear clean title and is currently registered as a 1975 BMW 2002. All headlights, brake lights, and turn signals function. The seller is $15,000 o.b.o. or trade for nicer rat rod or old school hot rod. Its in Chicago and street legal so be a boss and drive it home! But seriously, I just want to know what it does in the quarter mile…
