  1. S60R Exhaust Manifold - $100+Shipping

    withdrawing this from sale since the engine builder reminded me that it was port matched to the block. So, NOT FOR SALE
  2. Used Snabb Intake Pipe pre-fitted with PTC Element and Blue connection hose. Also used BMC CDA carbon fiber Conical air filter. Snabb pipe is a bit scuffed, but honestly you can't see it when installed. The air filter housing replaces the factory box and bolts directly to the stock MAF sensor housing. This setup is nice, and quite a bit louder than stock. It lets you here the sneeze that is usually lost due to our recirculation system. I used to love to let it rev up to about 2 1/2 - 3 grand in first gear, then let it drop while driving around in my parking garage, just to hear the boost breath. Asking $200 + shipping for the setup. (MAF not included)
  3. S60R Exhaust Manifold. Was Ceramic Coated, but I did not temper it properly, so most of it flaked off (that is what the rainbow effect is in the pics). Asking $100 plus shipping
  4. More Parts from my VR. EuroSport Tuning Downpipe. I was not happy with the finish when purchased new from EST; so I had it Ceramic Coated Satin Grey Ice locally. The Ceramic coating did not hold up well, as can be seen in the pics; mostly due to the fluid leaks from the engine over the years. Metal is in good shape and it could benefit from a new coating. I will include the O2 Sensor extension and the hardware to connect the angel pipe to the rest (although I would recommend replacing with new hardware). Asking $200 plus Shipping. Link to EST page for Downpipe
  5. More parts of my 2000 VR starting to become available. This is for the Cat Back system purchased from EuroSport Tuning about 3 years ago. I was not impressed with the finish of the kit when it arrived; So, I had it ceramic coated in Satin grey Ice fort he tubing and Flat Black for the silencers. The tips were not coated and remain polished finished. The restriction insert in the rear cross pipe was removed just before the system was installed. It had to be drilled out, and I did not fill the holes, but chose instead use the clamps to cover them. No clamps, hangers, or mounting hardware included. Asking $200 Plus Shipping Link to EST's page for Kit
  6. Monotech Touring Edition Exhaust Kit

    UPDATE: The car may be sold, so the part out is on hold until a decision is made.
  7. First parts off my Frankenmoose part out are the ABM Headlights. I picked them up from IPD a few years ago, and immediately installed XPEL Film on them. The access doors for the low beams are missing (removed to let the cooling fins for the LED Bulbs (long gone) breath, and promptly lost). There's a hole in the High beam access door for the Driver's side, for HID Ballasts to feed though (also gone); the Pass side door is lost. The access doors are easily replaced with factory ones. There are standard Sylvania bulbs in both high and low beam locations now. There are amber parking lights installed in the area below the high beam,; they match the turning/running bulbs. All mounting tabs are intact and mounting screws are included. Looking to get $200 +shipping for the set.

    Yup, It's the 1000ca version not the 800cca; so I paid $150 out the door. I haven't purchased a OEM battery in like 20 years. But, due to all the computers and electrical needs of this car, its the really the best battery on the market. This, or the Interstate Battery version, which costs more currently.

    60lbs of lead and acid. The V12 in the CL600 needs mass quantities...

    Am I using this thread right?
  12. What Did You Do To Your Car Today.

    I've been thinking about this doing something about this in the back of my mind; I hate how far my clutch depresses. What did you come up with?

    Man, so sorry to here about this. Part of the reason I went with Wiseco pistons is because of your build. But, alas, everything ends. It looks to me like when your piston was on the down stroke, it was extending downward enough for the rod to come in contact with the skirt. That would explain the slight bend in the skirt, and the stress cracks/fractures. i.e: The skirt was being bent out ever so slightly from the inside by impacting the rod; then, probably bent back into position by the bore on the upstroke. Do this enough times, and BAM stress cracks. Are there any signs of contact on the rods? Also, I don't remember, is this a B5244T3 block? If not, did you also use the crank from a B5244T3 along with the Piston/Rod setup from it? I only ask because the B5244T3 crank as a 92mm circumference, as apposed to the 90mm of the B5234T3. This allows the rod to be in a difference place when rotating than on the 90mm. It is a small difference, but enough to allow for clearance. Just a thought...
