I bought this car back in 2015 , as the second owner. I purchased it with 33k miles on it with one previous owner. I have done 95% of the maintenance and modifications to this car myself, with professional guidance in some cases. I don't necessarily want to sell this car, but it needs to go. It's a 2.3L turbo 4 cylinder. It is tuned for a 91 octane fuel (runs totally fine on 93) and it also has a tune for an e85 and 93 octane mixture. also referred to as an e33 tune, considering that it is 33% e85 and the rest 93 octane (4 gallons e85 and 8 gallons 93). This car has driven a large portion of its miles on the highway to and from colorado numerous times over the last few years. i have never had an issue.

Asking $9000 firm, this is slightly less than the KBB value of this vehicle, I need the car gone at this point.

rough mod list:
3.75 inch top mount intercooler upgrade.
3inch catless long downpipe.
resonator and muffler delete with 2.75 inch piping.
short ram intake.
turbo inlet hose.
high pressure fuel pump internals.
full atmosphere blow off valve. (I plugged the re-circulation hose).
solid aluminum rear motor mount.
adjustable coilover suspension (did a quick install and did not install the adjusters for the rear but i have them)
upgraded boost tubes.
short shift plate.
e85 race tune. (roughly 300whp)
91 daily tune. (roughly 270whp)

The good:
quick car.
decent mileage if you're nice to it.
reliable.
4 doors.
lots of space for being a compact hatchback.
all stock parts come with the car, minus one original strut that blew out.
new battery.
comes with the access port tuning computer for easy changing or future tuning.
Brand new front tires.


The bad:
The secondary O2 sensor is throwing a code for low circuitry. Due to there not being a catalytic converter, this secondary O2 sensor is more or less reduntant. It still works and reads. This does NOT harm the performance of that car. (100$ easy DIY fix)
needs an oil change (i have the oil, plus one more change worth of the oil i have used the entire time i have owned the car that i will throw in with the sale).
the stock skid plate was ripped off by a road hazard, i still have the whole plate intact, it just needs to be remounted.

PRICE IS FIRM $9000. text me at 254-twofiveeight-6508 to confirm interest and contact, then we can call to set up a time and i am happy to answer questions.
