      Feeler: 99 v70 fwd, 5 speed, 00 r motor swap

      Think about selling my v70, it used to be my daily which I put a ton of time and work into but things changed and I’ve barely driven it the last few years. It became a but rough around the edges from letting it sit but it still run great. It has a lot of great mods if someone was looking to build a car or wanted to take the time to part it out or even continue to drive it. I don’t have the time or interest in parting it out, the car still runs great, could use a few things but would need a bit of work cosmetically. Honestly have no idea what it’s worth in it’s current state so I thought I’d put out a feeler and see if anyone might be interested, make an offer or let me know what you think it’s worth.

      As far as information about the car it started as a 99 v70 tropical green metallic, Manual car, no sunroof, bought it with about 170k, currently sits at about 250k. At around 180k miles I decided to swap a motor from a 2000 v70r, it’s running off stock R ecu, never had a chance to get it tuned for a manual so it’s stuck with CEL. The motor had almost same amount of mileage as the car when it went in but the head was completely rebuilt, along with seals and gaskets etc.

      List of mods:

      00 v70r motor
      K24 turbo
      Ipd bcv
      Snaab fresh air pipe
      Front mount intercooler
      Forge bypass valve
      Eurosport tuning cold air intake
      3” custom turbo back exhaust, stainless, magnaflow high flow cat, resonator, and muffler
      Snaab short shift kit
      P2R manifold not Installed

      Sitting on koni sports with homemade Afco racing coil overs front and rear, can’t remember
      rates at the moment
      eBay camber plates
      Delrin subframe bushings
      Poly motor mounts
      Poly control arm bushings
      Ipd sway bars
      Also have the H&R springs I had on originally
      P2r rear calipers with ipd brackets, I have the fronts also, freshly powder coated but not on the car
      Braided steel lines
      New awd front rotors and calipers

      Interior completely swapped from 00 R
      Charcoal R seats front and rear
      R door panels
      Aluminum trim
      R cluster
      R radio with underseat amp
      R dash with center speaker
      Audio jack integration with radio
      Leather oem shift knob
      Charcoal alcantara headliner
      Charcoal sem painted sunvisors, sunvisor panel and grab handles
      Ipd boost gauge built into air vent

      R front bumper
      17” pegasus wheels
      Also have a set of 18” that needs refinishing
      Roof spoiler
      Xc grill

      I’m sure I’m forgetting something but that’s the bulk of it. The car is rough cosmetically, paint on the front end shows from being lowered, stone chips and some scrapes, some peeling clearcoat on passenger fender which you can tell was repainted. There’s no major damage just door dings, scratches etc. interior shows it’s age but overall In decent shape. Engine runs well, would need throttle body though at some point. I drove the car a bit over the summer, changed the oil, replaced the front brakes, enjoyed the hell out of it but I think it’s time to move on.

      I only have older pictures at the moment but will take a few recent ones as soon as I have the chance.
