    Background:
    This was my 2nd DSM, which I also didn't sell. It had an electrical issue one morning on my way to work back when I was in the army. So I had to leave my car there on the side of the road when my NCO came to pick me up. So 1 hour and 30 minutes later when I returned to where I left my car, it was gone. I called the police to report it stolen, and they said it had just been towed to the impound lot. They claimed the cop that reported it said it was a road hazard, yet I know it wasn't. Long story short, I couldn't get it back because I didn't have the title, and they later auctioned it.

      He later did the awd swap to it then called me to ask it I had done upgrades to the engine because the new engine wasn't as powerful. I hadn't and told him the power loss had to be because he added more drive train parts to turn. He wouldn't even sell me the old engine back for a reasonable price.

      Me too, and he was quite the douche. But thanks, hopefully updates on the GSX will be rolling again soon. Will be checking out your spyder when you post the updates. Can't wait to see.
