Pulled the Spyder shell out of a salvage yard a 6 years ago. Rebuild completely last winter. Completely stripped the shell, POR 15’d the floors and trunk, inside and out. Converted to all-wheel drive with all parts from a 1995 Talon TSI(brackets, bolts, hangers, gas tank, etc) all welded into factory locations, has LSD rear end from a 1997 Eclipse GSX. Has GS-T interior wiring, GSX engine wiring. All power options work except A/C (doesn’t have the compressor or condensor installed). Top works perfectly, transmission shifts very smooth no grinds at all. Not sure why the clutch pedal is sticky, maybe just needs to be driven. Motor has a little over 1,000 miles on the rebuild. Block was rebuilt by CJ Morrison of H.I.D tuning, head was rebuilt by Marty King of Mouse Motors. Dyno’d by Luke Stubbs at Beyond Redline in Green Bay, WI at 16.22 psi. Made 228.38 wheel horsepower and 231.44 wheel torque at the psi. With a front mount intercooler, the car could be retuned and boost could easily be turned up, the motor is built to take more.

Reason for selling is that we don’t use the car, have an Evo and a 1997 GSX and the Spyder just sits. Pretty firm on $5,600.00. Have over $6,000.00 just in parts stuck into the car before the labor and time. Clear title but title says it’s an 1996 RS model. No trades!!. DOES NOT COME WITH THE BLACK 5-SPOKE RIMS OR THE ENKIE RIMS IN THE PICTURES!!! If you are interested in either set of those rims, contact me for a price. Car will come with a set of factory chrome 5-spoke rims. Painted black primer, not black spray paint! Scuff and paint it whatever color you want.
