How fast are they? Do they handle well? How fast have you gone? If i could get one in decent shape, 100,000 miles and a new paint job for $2000 would that be a good deal?

for how big they are they are decently fast and have about 260hp. Stock they run a low 15 in the 1/4 mile which is faster than 80% of the rice mobiles on the road so it makes a good sleeper.

Yes.....that's a pretty good deal.

If in your position (and I was about 4 years back) I'd buy it and keep a couple grand on-hand for when the tranny blows.

I'd also install some new valve springs (Crane 10309-16) and maybe even some roller tipped rockers (Comp Cams Magnum, 1.6 self aligned).

Hell yes! That is a good deal. 94-96 9C1's can be fun to drive and cheap to mod, that's if you don't get to crazy with it.

On open highway I've taken my 9C1 to about 140 mph. I heard of some people re-tuning their ECM to 160 mph. And, 5 years back some guy in Germany put twin-turbos on and went past 200 mph.

Was this 9C1 a regular-uty cop car or was it a light-duty car. Since, regular-duty cop cars are always ragged out, while 9C1's that saw light-duty even with 100,000 miles or over are still pretty fresh engines.

Good luck with your new endeaver:biggrin:

.....Not to get off track, but KW, what about those springs and Crane Gold 1.6 RR's.....
Full rollers are 'better'.....but also more expensive. I'd go full roller, but I figured I'd let the guy know there were more economical options.


As for the Crane Golds......nahhh.

Give me the Comp Pro-Mags any day!!! Pro-Mags are steel (vs aluminum Cranes), are balanced better and flex less at high RPMs.

Crane 10309-16 springs work very well with stock heads/cam.

Comp Cams 26915 beehives work better......but are more expensive.


IMHO, of course!

94 w/LT1

I have a 94 9C1 with the LT1 and I love it. Ive done 122mph and it got there really quick from like 50 and I easily could have squeezed more out of it but my paranoia took over and I slowed a bit. All my buddies love it when I drive because its like driving your couch down the freeway,floats like a cloud.
Acceleration is respectable,especially for driving your livingroom around.
Got mine w/93k on it,had a bunch of things to do at first (opti,battery,starter,exhaust,exhaust manifold broken bolt) but after that its been great since, now with 110K (since october).
IMHO you find a deal like that ....go for it!

This thread was dead for over 2 years so don't get your hopes up.

I would also recommend deleting you phone number from the post.
