10.5 A/R? I'd never buy a car that was so horribly tuned. That's rich enough to cause some serious carbon build up issues.

"LUCKY" - If the person gets $7-8 K for a car (1990) that is 17 years old. Makes me wonder why there is no pictures of the (CLOSE-UP) cockpit or engine bay - ENGINE BAY PICTURES ?????????????.
The interior picture could be quite deceiving because of the out of focus.....

The only way I can see he's got $15k in is paying for the labor to have a lot of that stuff installed. That's about double what somebody should pay for it IMO... sell the hardtop separately.

nice looking car, he is on CR.net I think.

17psi, t3/4, 256hp? does that seem weird to anyone else?

^ with the 10.5:1 afr, no.

It says in the ad that in its current state its running 19 psi and "I tuned it some more". I've definitely seen that car before somewhere, either CR or RD.

I think you guys must be missing how much he is boosting ... he has boost turned up to about 20 psi, I dont think 10.5/1 is that out of line at that high of boost

Yeah but ~260hp at 20psi on t3/t4 is way low, must be horribly tuned or the setup doesn't flow at all.

Still pretty rich. Probably a case of, "here's some knock, lets dump fuel on it til it goes away".

I should go check it out. It's local. I sold a '90 with simliar specs for $8600 3 years ago. If he gets $10K he'd be really luck. I didn't have the wide body or coilovers, but had the built motor and a smaller turbo.

IMHO, if you're gonna brag about 300hp, have a dyno sheet to back it up. Just cause the parts are there, doesn't make it a 300hp car.

the car is a 93, but old nonetheless.

he said 265 at 17psi and 300 at 19psi. But I don't quite think it sounds right either.

ummm, the car posted doesn't even have a wide body, it said that they just pulled and rolled the stock fenders.

That concept is still a mystery to me... if someone has experience with the baseball bat rolling method I'd like to know more.
