Default Trade turbo for hardtop?

Anyone got a like new GT2871R and looking/willing to trade for an excellent condition red hardtop with no defrost?

I know it's a long shot but WTH.

nah. just wanna keep my air temps down if for when I want over 300. The 2560 seemed to peak at 300/14psi and air temps were great, after that it just heated up the air more and more. That's why I only made an additional 11hp with 3psi more. Gonna go to a 2560 on the daily for the same reason.
