I really like the vacuum line extended OUTSIDE of the hood into a breather (that is sitting close to the windshield - shown on picture #1)...wonder why we never thought of that!

I was being sarcastic when I said "maybe it's a rear mount." I was taking advantage of how much people seem to hate rear mounts on this forum. At least that's the idea I got last time somebody was mis-fortunate enough to mention them here. I like em on some cars, Corvettes, mustangs, Camaros and the like, even if there in a seemingly venerable position.

My email to him:
Quote:
I don't know who lied to you, but that car is not turbo. It's not quick either, it's a giant spraypainted shitbox that needs to be crushed ASAP.
And his response:
Quote:
This car has turbo, it wasn't hooked up, but it does have one. It was sold 2 months ago, where did u see the add it's not supposed to be up anymore. Thanks for your interest anyhow.
