Cons

Tires have about 4/32"s left on them. That's less than I like but still well above the legal limit of 2/32s and very capable of going another season with them on
The Recaro seats need a deep cleaning

Why I am selling it, with the gas prices continuing to go up and this vehicle requires premium, I just can't justify keeping it and not driving it. With the new engine the car is very capable of 350whp/300wtrq+
I'm trying to focus on other things than a modified vehicle.
Only quality parts have been used, and I have never had any major problems with the car
The car is paid off with a clean title.
The front bumper and hood have been painted just because of the CF hood and shaving the license bracket.
I'm sure there are things I am missing about the vehicle. Come Check it out, take it for a ride or whatever. Only serious buyers can drive it. Bring cash or don't drive it
I have flow sheets on the new cylinder head and a lot of the receipts to go with it.

Asking $10,995 or best offer, yes this is well over blue book value, but the car is coming with a brand new $5,000 engine. This car is very unique, rare and VERY fun to drive. The supercharger gives the car torque almost instantly, absolutely ZERO lag with it. There is about 800 Silver 2004 Ion Redlines made, and around 7,000 Redlines made total over 3 years.

Cold weather means my 20psi gauge needs to get upgraded.. Needle touched the stop on the gauge. I guess that means I buried it
Still only on 16 degrees of timing and conservatively rich. 11.5-11.2 afr
