I don't think anyone will buy it until it is tuned and running properly to its full potential. If he wants max money for it, then show the public what it can do and set the price accordingly.

Never noticed this thread was moved here, I only assumed it was closed. Here is an update for everyone.

First off I wanted to mention because some people like to give this project a time frame. We had agreed with @Frs300 to bring the car to us to tighten up some loose ends, tune the car and give him back a 100 percent perfect vehicle to enjoy. Since FRS300 had been royally screwed over time and time again and he being in the military, we along with Junior agreed to do the labor and tuning 100% FREE of charge. Any parts needed would be covered by FRS300 at our cost.

Car arrived and notice a nasty tick coming from the head plus the car smoking quite heavily. We pull the motor and discover, other than the missing/stolen parts, that the one cylinder head was not torqued down whatsoever and some head studs were hand tightened. This led to the cylinder head lifting and coolant mixing with engine oil. This caused heavy scoring throughout the cam journals, cylinder walls, rod and main bearings, crankshaft etc. The motor needed a complete overhaul. Heads were sent out to Headgames to repair and set the lash properly which due to the high volume of work they do, we only received the heads back recently. The block is at the machine shop also being honed, cleaned and pressure tested. New piston rings were ordered from CP which have taken an eternity and still waiting to come in. Rod and main bearings are here.

I maintain communication with FRS every single day via text or facebook PM. Unfortunately for him though is that we was dismissed from the military 6 months too soon and we both agreed to hold off on the project for some time since the cost of parts would have been too much for him to bare until he was able to find a job and get priorities straight. Luckily everything is looking up for him and we are currently only waiting on piston rings to resume reassembling his motor and getting his car out to him. He was able to send me a clutch disk to replace his old one that was "misplaced" by Toni.

P&L Motorsports was also kind enough to send him one of their kits because he was so turned off with the FA20club offering. We will be using the PTE 6266 with the P&L kit and also adding a Flex Fuel kit, ARP Head Studs (toni reused the originals), Full Blown Oil Cooler, FBM Fuel Pump Kit and Mishimoto Radiator to the mix.

I don't know the agreement they have or if Brandon is ok with the time schedule.
I'm just saying... from what I know ... that it's been dragging on for some time now, again. I hope it's going well for him and my concerns are not justified.
I was around when he first reported his engine problem after the initial install.. Just want to see this guy back in his new car someday.

Please read our update before we all jump to conclusions. If anyone has any concerns about his car or our work, they can happily PM us or @Frs300 and we can clear it all up for you. There is simply more to the story than meets the eye.

WOW. No words for @PrimeMotoring

That is literally the only thing I thought Brandon could have to make his outlook change on this project. Bravo.

We are planning on throwing in one of our Flex Fuel kits on the house for him. I know he is moving to Texas eventually so it will be easier for him to find out there.

Well it was nice to hear an explanation.. It seems you guys are going above and beyond to help him out..
Glad to hear there is a happy ending to this. We all are looking forward to hearing @Frs300 kill stories.
Thanks for the update and for all you have done for him and the community..

Thank you so much for all. It seems @Frs300 is finally being done right by a reputable car shop.

I believe this statement has been said in some way, shape, or form at least once on every page of this thread.
