2005 2.3L ZX3 - FSWerks 2871R, 387WHP - PERFECT, TURN KEY
Location: Phoenix, AZ
Here it is- If you are looking for a turn key, well-built, high horsepower ZX3, this is the one. Everything in the motor has been recently been gone through as of December 2012. Vik at FSWerks torn it down and inspected everything. It’s got a clean bill of health with new maintenance items, sensors, etc. The motor itself was built about 2 yrs ago and had lots of new items installed at that time (timing chain, guides, new valves, etc) when it was done. I had Vik do some work a couple months ago due to some coolant consumption. He milled the head, installed a new head gasket and did a physical inspection of the internals, as well as a compression check and leakdown check. Everything is within spec. I additionally asked him go through the rest of the car and gave him the green light to fix any issues he found. I have receipts for the work performed… it was a little over 3K in parts and labor. You should be able to start this car every morning and just enjoy it. This is a one-owner car as well.
Here is the list of modifications that I remember. I do have receipts for a lot of these things, but perhaps not all. There are of course lots of other things that have been replaced over time (OEM items) that are not listed here.

Beautiful car, hope it goes to a good home.
I wish someone would buy my SRT4 so I could buy this.
I remember a couple of years you had this up for sale and I wanted it then. I still want it now :(
how many miles?
talk about a friggen deal.
Will it run on 91 octane?
That color is really unfortunate because the car is fantastic. GLWS
387whp was achieved by adding some 100 octane to the tank and turning up the boost.
