Thread: TPI 848 efi DEMO NEW OFFER

  1. #1
    Here is an idea:
    Seeing how there are many do it yourselfers on this site and a whole bunch of guys with great contacts, I have come up with a crazy offer:
    I still have the TPI 848 efi available that I ran some tests on over the Summer. It has a whopping total of 31 hours and 5 oil changes/services.
    Seeing how I utilized most of my own parts(exhaust, accessories, balancer, ignition, ecu, coolers, motor mounts) from my own personal motor(to minimize costs), I now have a motor that someone else can "finish" up exactly the way they want.....................any colors, brackets, ect..........I would be more than happy to assist the buyer with parts or accessories if they need them.
    Essentually, you would be purchasing a complete custom ALL AMERICAN longblock(valve covers to pan) with a fully polished Whipple Kit, including MOAC intercooler and oil feed system in place.
    You could bag it up and do the project in the Winter, Spring, or whenever it works out.
    The motor has a new distributor timed and in place, along with all of the sensors being installed(NO ECU). I am working on the price:idea:
    Bottom Line Price.

    So am I getting this right? This is 22K less then you normally charge for the same motor? And you just dropped it 12K in a months time.........??

    Maybe this will make it more clear. Sorry for the confusion Andy01:
    1. The price was dropped $10K on the motor because I put 31 hours on it. Which I felt was more than fair in a VERY soft economy..........................
    2. This price ($24,640) reflects the motor without all of the listed accessories,as stated above:exhaust, accessories, balancer, ignition, ecu, coolers, motor mounts). The buyer will provide these items themself.
    Essentually, you would be purchasing a complete custom ALL AMERICAN longblock(valve covers to pan) with a fully polished Whipple Kit, including MOAC intercooler and oil feed system in place.
    This gives me an opportunity to move this motor and a "crafty" consumer to purchase it and buy there own accessories from thier own source or through me,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,whatever is easiest. The price is VERY fair for what is here. This is what is for sale:

    Thanks Busby,
    Guys in the industry know the cost of what is involved in a set up like this, with these kind of parts..................
    I figured at this price,,,,,,,,,,,a guy could snatch it up, and bargain shop for the accessories over the off season, and have himself a VERY nice efi motor for 2008..........................................
