Default 1000hp Twin turbo '04 GTO on ebay

I randomly search around on ebay at cars I lust over and just came across this one.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Ponti...fCarsQ5fTrucks

"This is an incredibly well-built car using only the best parts and professional performance experts with which no expense was spared nor short-cut taken."

Professionally built with worm gear clamps and all!!!!







Really? Upwards of 25psi and using worm gear clamps? Good luck with that!

If the pipes are beaded/lipped then worm clamps are fine, duh

I like how they wrap the hoses furthest from the turbo, but nothing else.

I've had cars with worm gear clamps on beaded pipes, they fail.

Why did they leave the back-seat in, and why is the cage unpainted?

"While the pictures and videos will give you some idea what the car is like, they will in no way explain or demonstrate what this car sounds like in person or what it is capable of when driven as intended. For that, you'll need to step up to the plate in person"

I hate the way that it will suck up water if you drive in the rain. Hydrolock anyone?

Id imagine that there is normally just a tin there, a dust sheild.
Idk why ou would take it off though, on the off chance that a little pebble got up in there it could cause problems.

He says in the video that the car is 750hp, but has the potential to make 1000.
Which sets of major BS alarms.
1) Why is he advertising it as "1000hp" if its never made more than 750
2) probably not even making 750
3) what a homo
