Here is my 2006 exige for sale. I purchased this car just a few months ago and its a bit to projectish for me and I'm going to go after a 996TT, Its a fairly documented car built by MAYPO. So you can look around at its progress over the years.

TRANSAXLE
Sector111 Trackmounts (poly engine mounts)
OS gikken LSD Differential
Brand new Tilton twin-disk clutch

And heres a bit of a rundown. Once the car is started and running it has great power. Did some 281rwhp on a mustang dyno. Its a bit of a hard starter and it refuses to idle. Some of this is due to the tune and the other part is the EFI tech doesn't control the DBW system very well. I don't want to fool with it or I'd replace with BOE's flash set up. Also the clutch is very harsh, there's no slip to it and its a very loud set up. Its a great track clutch but I had planned on swapping it as well. Also the belly pan is not installed at the momentThis car looks very mean and is a blast to drive but a bit to much for me at the moment. Ill take some pics when I get the chance.

Well second time I believe. Maypo sold it back in 12 I think. Its driveable, I drove it to work today. The stand alone needs some one who knows how to tune it. It takes a few revolutions to start it and I modulate the gas pedal to keep it idling def not ready for stop and go traffic.Ive done it but its a mf'er with the clutch/idle. It runs and drives and has great power as is. Id probably switch it to BOE's tuneable set up and sell the DRS system. Ac is still removed. for a nominal fee Ill reinstall it.

How much do you think the new owner have to put in(clutch ,tune, ECU?)in order to daily drive this thing?

"Flared -- 1-1/2" front, 2" rear the flares on these need a little work. Look good from far off but not show quality"
How bad?

with the tune id just sell the drs unit and go with boe. as far as the clutch its not bad just a stuff clutch. as with the flares they're not bad at all just not a show quality job. look pretty good though. if it doesn't sell I'll just swap the clutch and new tune myself.

What would it cost ballpark to get this thing running smoothly and reliably by the BOE folks? Everytime I see this car pop up I'm tempted. Any interest in a lightly modified STI?

No thanks on the sti. I've already ordered boe cable, torque 300 custom tune, boe intake, 3.0 pulley and new belt. I'll update when it's done and update the price as well. Thanks

guys I just don't have time to
mess with this anymore. I put a new harness, boe torque 300, boe intake, and 3.1 pulley with new belt. I'm tired of trouble shooting the issues and going to buy something different.
I'm gonna ask. 34k as is. pm me for details
