So I've looked at a couple more dsm's this week... I looked at a 2g that I found on craigslist and I could write a book about everything that was wrong with that car or more important the engine. Not worth my time to write it or probably your's to read it. I also posted a add on craigslist stating that I am looking for a clean awd dsm and got a text the next morning from what appeared to be this guys (wife)?? o.0 and she texted me a basic side pic and said that the car had $20g's in parts alone...asking $8. I was curious, so I checked it out today and there were some interesting things going on with this car... HEY DSM JUNKIES! Tell me what you think about what I saw: Clean body, nice rims/tires, after market hood scoop with some rust just need some sanding and paint but overall I would say the body was in excellent shape. However, I found the engine to have magical qualities to it. For example he had no aftermarket fpr, ecu, injectors, or even the turbo and yet he claims 450-500hp!! The bottom end must have unicorns and fairy's flying around... He had a safc, a wideband, and a boost pressure/temp gauge combo that looked ancient. Maybe he took the good stuff off? I don't know if he's expecting people to ignorantly dish out 8k for a car that is worth 3k under the assumption that it has 500 horses or if he just honestly thinks it has this much hp. The sad part to that last statement...I think it's the later. I have honestly never put a wrench on a dsm. I've owned one but been traveling the world in the military and never been able to do anything with it. How do I some little to no experienced kid no more about these cars then all these people that drive and (attempt) to mod them?! I'll keep waiting for that clean dsm and mod it meticulously and properly.
