Default My 98 GTP

The car is broken. It needs some lovin

I got it for half of what a basic trans rebuild would cost. 1/4th of the private party bluebook value

It has no 3rd gear. Trans needs attention but goes into 4th just fine....It needs some junkyard parts on the inside...lots of em.


















Did I mention it is a high 13 second car as it stands

What are your plans? Are those the SSEi'* wheels or did it come with the GXPs?

those are my rims...the tires that came with it are 205/50/16

I got snow tires and wheels on my ssei

Plans include fixing the cosmetic problems, fix the sensor related idle issues and probably reselling the car as is with the bad trans or I may pull the trans myself and have a shop rebuild it for me.

It needs a lot of junkyard parts..some of the obvious:
- DIC burned out
- steering wheel controls are busted
- All Door panels are broken
- Trunk needs gasket
- Various vents and reflectors on the inside missing
- needs a new rear seat
- Needs carpet cleaned
- headlight on driver side is trashed
- both tail lights are cracked and delaminated

ALL GTP taillights of that Gen delam worse than the 92-95 Bville'*. Don't be too disappointed if you don't find a better set at a wrecker. Tint 'em. Nobody will ever know, and it'll look BADASS on that Red GTP.

I found the problem with the rough idle/poor performance:

I might have a DIC and some steering wheel controls here.
