I saw this a few days ago when I was checking the local Craigslist. It's not a bad price, but I don't like buying swapped cars. I'm a little bit weary of who did the passenger side mount swap and the wiring. But considering the cost of swap+a 94 shell, it comes out to be a very luring price.

I may have to check it out. I've always wanted to have a 6th gen with a 3SGTE swap with the same paint and rims as my 5th gen does. Obviously, I'd do the GT-FOUR exterior conversion but, I don't know, let you guys know if I do get it.

Not too bad considering it as a "Lot: of parts" but I wouldn't trust someones workmanship who writes in all caps and uses WUZ as a past tense lol

I'm scared.... the kid sounds like he has an IQ of about..... 63.9.

Where is he pulling the 370hp number from?

I'd at least go look at it. Find EVERYTHING you can wrong, and lowball the shit out of him.

Oh, and drive your swap out there when you go look at it, so he can see how much of a piece his car really is.

lol, I thought the same thing when I was reading it. I was like, wtf is WUZ?

My plans exactly

What I don't get is he says its only running 4psi when the stock actuator spring is set at 8lbs.

I saw that, it sounded like a disaster from the way the ad was worded.

Ewww, frightening... the only good thing is that he didn't do the swap. But then.. he just had it rebuilt so... :thumbsdow

Also, weary means tired. Wary means you're cautious. Right up there with "tunning" for most misused/misspelled word on car forums :hehe:

I saw it, and i agree with you 100%. 370hp off a 3sgte with "lotsa mods"

No heatshield (doesn't really matter though). And, only 4 PSI of boost? That's lower than stock... wonder if it can even take stock boost. I'd be wary, but I'm no expert.

well if you live locally I would take a look at it and if everything is okay and you have the money go for it at 2k best thing to do at that point is get the title back and resell that car on every internet forum avaible for twice the price.
