    Hi, selling my Typhoon to make garage space for my other projects.

    For those unfamiliar with the Typhoon:
    – Built in 1992 and 1993, approx 2300 each year.
    – Preceeded by the pickup truck version, Syclone in 1991
    – 4.3 V6, turbocharged (14.7psi) and intercooled.
    – AWD. 0- 60 in about 4.9. Magazines in the day said 5.3, but they did not know how to “boost-launch” correctly (or chose not to).
    – Quarter mile in high 13 sec range.
    – Consistent 1.7 sec 60 foot times. From 0 – 40 MPH, can embarrass cars which are much faster on paper (i.e. ideal conditions, and a practiced driver) or in a full 1/4 mile race.
    – Can be made to go much faster, but this one has not. Factory “do not tamper” seal on ECU is intact.

    Mild modifications include:
    – Camaro LS1 disc brakes all around
    – Tubular a-arm/coilover front suspension
    – Quick-ratio steering gear
    – ABS deleted (but included with purchase if desired)
    – Auxiliary intercooler heat exchanger and pump. IC steel lines replaced with hose (improved recovery time after a WOT blast, less heat soak)
    – battery and air filter locations swapped (mostly for ease of maintenence, maybe a slight reduction in intake restriction).
    – Hi-flow cat, 4″ Borla SS exhaust
    – 3 guage pillar pod with boost, 4-input pressure, 4 input temp meters
    – Pioneer DHH-P4100UB HU, Polk speakers, subwoofer and amp built into the tailgate
    – Clifford alarm
    – Shutoff valves to heater core to improve AC performance
    – Remote solenoid (eliminates no-start due to downpipe cooking the on-starter solenoid and wiring)
    – Rear lowered 2.5″ with re-arched spring and lowering blocks. Automatic air leveling modified to work correctly with lowered stance.
    – 17×9.5F, 17×11 rear ZR1 style replica wheels (stock wheels available/included, depending on offer)
    – 2″ cowl hood (stock available/included, depending on offer)
    – Fresh paint
    – overhead console

    Mileage: 125k. Always garaged and covered. Truck is in north Dallas area.
    Listed on Craigslist at $10k, but really looking to get $8500 OBO.

    The JH6 Option is the HydroBoost brakes and the vehicle has a 9900GVR. RockAuto has different pads and rotors listed for this option. Just dont know if its all hype or are the expensive pads really required.
