Is the hill that cat is perched on supposed to be transparent, or did somebody make a boo-boo when saving in .GIF format?

Getting back on topic, I asked the seller the following question:
Quote:
Are you on drugs?

Seriously. You're claiming 280 HP at 10PSI on BP-series engine with a 28xx
Garrett, which just defies logic to begin with. But to ask $2,500 + $300
shipping, and without the manifold or the injectors to boot? A person could
buy a brand new BEGI-S turbo system and add a cheap intercooler plus the MS
and the exhaust for about the same money as what it would cost to get your system working again.
I'll let y'all know if he replies.

Wow, what a bargain!

A used "kit" without the much needed exhaust manifold...what a deal!

I wanna see the dyno sheet. Bet it comes back with the label photoshopped out and replaced with Miata. I really hope no one buys it. Even an idiot deserves better than that.

Yes, if it's not too much trouble, the dyno sheet would be nice to see. Actually, posting it along with the item listing would be a great idea to help potential buyers see just what they can expect.

Thanks in advance for the info.

This is a ridiculous deal
I agree with him completely! This is what you get for $2800!



2 aluminum mandrel bends. 4 silicone connectors, 4 t-bolt clamps, a sleeve bearing turbo, MSPNP, an unknown BOV, and a diy exhaust/DP all one piece.

Looks like a $600 ecu, $200 turbo and about $300-400 worth of misc. other stuff. Super deal!!!


He did say he cracked the Mani. Is this Doppelganger's secret ebay douche bag identity?!?
