LOL.

Should probably keep on trying to get it to build boost in the meantime, though!

I bet you could talk him down a good bit and it'd be decent (other than the gay automatic). All it needs are new coilpacks and it'd run fine.

Ehhh, nevermind it's hacked to crap. Still looks like some decent parts there at least.

The way I see it someone could low ball him at say 3k and get back to life. I don't know about everyone else but ALWAYS bring a compression tester with you and Some 5/8ths sockets LOL. I think this car goes with out saying.

I'm not surprised that someone who can't end a sentence and begin another one can't figure out logically how to repair his car.

There is fail all the way to the core. It's got a preety green radiator also to go with that a/t. Obviously the seller never read a single thread on here.The noobiest noob that ever noobed. Haha

Edit

I also thought about ****** with him and sending an email asking what stage it was.

My NB is an auto - and it put 210 at the wheels no problem... was weird not hearing the BOV purge until I let off the throttle. Shifting was/is still smooth.
But it now has a cracked ring on #4 so I'm in the middle of yanking everything out. will have 6spd when it goes back in.

does the trans ever get "confused" with the turbo altering the load and torque output?
