    01 V6 5Spd Many Mods

    Well I hate to do it but I'm going to officially test the waters on selling the car. I am not hurting to sell it, so I won't take any low ball offers. With that being said I'm setting the price at $5500. I won’t say that price is firm, however like I said, I'm in no rush to sell it. I also don't want to part anything out, so its all or nothing.

    Specs-
    -2001 3.8 M5 Camaro
    -101k miles (and counting, as this is my daily driver)
    -New Jasper Engines Motor installed less than 15k miles ago.
    -With new motor new Abbott NA Cam with comp 105# springs, moded steel retainers, and comp 7.00' hardened pushrods installed.
    -New 410 gears with torsen diff installed at same time as new motor.
    -New clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder installed with new motor.
    -Car gets 20mpg daily driving and 25mpg cruising at 75mph+ on the highway (if you can handle the rpms lol)

    The Cars History
    Everyone here knows the cars history, if you want details I can give as much or as little as you want, don’t be afraid to ask.
    Known Issues-
    Mechanical/Electrical-
    -Rear end is making some noise. Shop tells me it seems there is some play in the pinion gear. This was installed along with the new motor, and only recently devolved the noise.
    -Seems to burn some oil between changes. It’s done this from the start and causes no
    issues. I just watch it. I think some of this may be an oil pan leak as well.
    -The driver’s side door sags a little. I believe this is causing the switch that tells the interior lights to cut off not to read right. I currently have the interior lights pulled out, but this should be an easy fix.
    Exterior/Interior
    -Though most of this car has had some repaint, it’s not in show condition at all. With that being said, it does shine up pretty well. With some paint correction it could really stand out (removing some swirls and imperfections in the paint). The hood was the most recently done and is in good shape, though it does have some imperfections as well. The rest of the car has the chips and scratches you would usually expect. I can literally point out every little thing, so don’t be afraid to ask for details.
    -The driver’s side seat has a rip down the side of the side bolster. I have temporarily repaired this with some strong thread, but it will need some more attention later. I had hoped to have these recovered, so it wasn’t big on my to-do list. The passenger side seat has a twist in the back piece. I pulled these from a wrecked car, and the way the car was hit kind of tweaked the seat. I was going to have this straightened out when it was recovered as well.

    I’m sure there’s stuff I'm missing, so please ask anything you like.



    Here are some of the newest pictures I have. Some of the changes aren’t even in these, and I plan to get more here soon. If you have any requests I will gladly get what you need. If anyone has some pictures of mine from Off the top of my head, missing in those pictures are the new projectors and tail lights, but maybe more.

    I just had a Jasper engine put in my 01. How well did yours hold up and did you have any issues. I spun a rod in my old one at 71k.

    no issues out of the jasper engine thus far. lasted way longer then any of the junkyard motors i put in. I am only at less than 15k on it, so i cant be too sure. So far so good though, best its ran in awhile. Makes me sad to sell it.

    Good to know. How did you cam it without voiding the warranty? I was gonna do a GT2 cam but it would void the warranty. =[ I put headers on and it makes a big difference.

    I want your car so bad! If I didn't just drop 5k in mine I would be all over this.

    Well techincally the warranty would not still be with it. My mechanic said he would have his way around getting it replaced if something did come up, but i really just banked on the fact i would take care of it and the cam itself wouldn't cause any issues. Just remember price is negotiable, never know what you can work out.

    Off topic, i see your from Dacula. I was there not to long back doing a mod day with some fellow v6 fbody people.

    I'm really from Trussville AL but go to school in GA. What group is it? I need some new car buddies that don't think I'm stupid for modding a V6. I get shit all the time from "some" people but it's my car.

    its just a group of friends from v6f-body.com

    Plenty of v6 modding over there, and we have a nice size group from the South east region. We do the gathering every year together in Atlanta, and have had a couple mods days.
