Im going to be selling my 1989 mx6 gt for around $1000 as is. Im letting all the guys know in san diego or la area first. There are some minor problems that i just don't want to deal with anymore. you can use it as a parts car or drive it as is.

i have all or most of the reciepts for the things i bought.

Its pretty much back to complete stock in the interior.
The only thing after market is a vdo boost gauge and door speakers.

Mileage is 210,000 on new head but stock block.
compression numbers from left to right are 115,120,100,120

List of all parts purchased within 3 years.
-installed a new oem exedy clutch kit and 10.5 lb Fidanza Flywheel during september 2007.
- 3 inch exhaust with a high flow cat and magnaflow muffler. i got a downpipe made from the end of the turbo elbow to the cat. i think its to 2 1/2 to 3 inch.
-two year old monroe sensatrak shocks with new intrax springs.
-New 185 degree thermostat
-new water pump
-new radiator
-new radiator fan
-new thermostat sensors
-new oxygen sensor
-new cap, rotor, spark plug, spark plug wires.
- i put on the 18mm sway bar from the probe and also has the rstb.
- there's polyurethane sway bar bushings in the front and rear.
- theres a front otto-R strut bar. it was for a 2nd gen but made it fit.
- took out the ac and i'm running the ac delete pulley.

Things that need to be fixed.
- driver side window motor or regulator. not sure witch one
- needs to be smogged, i went and tested it twice and failed the nox both times. they said it might need a new cat converter. i don't really want to pay to have a new cat put in. I did already pay the registration fee. you would have till the end of november to smog it.
- may need a new timing belt pulley. i just bought a new timing belt tension pulley. you need the one thats next to it.
- it just recently started popping out of fifth gear. i think i might be the shifter cause the bushings are bad so it might not be going into gear all the way. it doesn't do it all the time. i will try to fix it before i sell it.

i will post pictures tomorrow. I think there's like three pictures of the car if you search (Two tone 1st gen mx6). There is no more roll bar and the rims im keeping. i will be selling it with the stock rims.

Is the Body stright? Any body hits? Doors close good? Lets see some pics. I got cash.
theres a small indent on the bottom driver door. other than that there is a penny size dent on the rear fender. the body is pretty good. and yes both doors close good. moonroof works fine.

is the 1000 firm? I mean is not passing smog for a reason, compression numbers are low 115,120,100,120, and maybe the tranny is bad and need to changed it. Other than that the body looks good.
i have the smog papers and everything. i think its the cat. its a 3 inch catco high flow cat and i had it on there for 4 years. all the gears in the tranny seem fine. like i said i can put back in the short shifter i had before and see if it still does it. there's also a small oil leak on the left back side of the head and block but its not loosing crazy amounts of oil. i bought a head from a guy on line. he said it was ported. i got the head checked by a mechanic and he said it was straight, no warpage. (thats the current head on now) i did go through another head before that. it lasted a year then the head gasket blew. when the head gasket blew i took everything apart and i checked the specs with a feler guage and the head was warped, that was a remanufactured one from i was about to sell it when that happened but i ended up replacing the head gasket. i did that in january 2008. about the price, the least i will go is 900 firm. but if i could get 1000 that would be good.

California Law mandates that YOU smog the car before you sell it, not the other way around.
Usually, high NOx is due to a problem in the EGR System. Is it hooked up and working properly? It can also be brought on by high combustion temps.

maybe, but it's a bullshit law. people sell cars all the time without smogging them, so much for it being a law.
