    Thought about buying gst, seller has this to say. What ya guys think it may
    I do not know how to explain, the car had bad seals from the top of the engine was passing engine oil to the manifold was manageable, I wanted to send it to the lathe to repair it but it did not take time and I took the interest off the car starts and is heard fine but it does not accelerate to more than 20 and it feels as if it is pulling too much air and that is why it drowns the engine

    Sounds super vague honestly. My opinion is that turbo seals are shot as you shouldn’t have “manageable” oil passing out of the turbo. I would ask him to do a compression test as well as a list of what mods that are on it. Sounds like fuel parts were upgraded without using any tuning software. Hope this helps. Get back to me with that information and I can possibly help further.

    VC gasket?
    Agreed with @TunedUp, turbo/exhaust/intake gaskets are completely shot. Boost leak test, compression test, leakdown test.

    All of this, assuming the car's worth it to you.

    It's worth spending a little extra for something with a good engine. Unless your like me, and you mess sh** up just to fix it on purpose LOL. Or you like to mod it like me. :)
