for sure, not a show car, but considering its got 130k on the car, i think its looking relatively clean under the hood. yes, im not to exited about the air filter or the brake fluid, but all that is an easy fix.

from what i can tell the turbo kit on that car alone, at one point was 3k (fm2 kit now is what, 3500?). sooo whats cheap, by your definition?

thanks.

The turbokit is worth about $1000 not $3000. Link will bring probably $350-$400.
