ok so i looked at this car today http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/car/172298204.html
and here are the pics i took of it while i was there sorry my camera is cheap



it was prett fast when i drove it it had a CEL becuase the idiot never put in a spot for the O2 sensor (the guy selling it didnt put the kit on) it grinded a little in 3rd on hard shifting, there was no line for the valve cover breather the motor has about 125k on it and the car had like 209k the turbo had maybe been on there for liek 10k it was dripping oil form somewhere after about 10 mins of sitting there were a good 3-5 drops on the ground and there was oil on the eigne i couldnt see wher eit was leaking from also they took off the ps pump and left it connected just pulled the belt and zipp tied it off to the side cuz it would fit wiht the turbo manifold......other than that the guy said it had 228 hp when he got it and he has put on a 2.5" exhaust wiht no cat so i guess it would have a few more it had dsm blue tops and a chipped p28 as well tell me what you guys think if its worth considering

You're not taking into consideration he probably has $1,500+ in that turbo set-up, $500 into the engine swap, who knows how much into the suspension, etc.

Yeah it's not the worst. Not something I would probably get, but seems worth the money.

it never matters how much you have into a car you immediately lose the value of bolt ones when they are bolted on

Tell that to a friend of mine that sold his B18B '92 rusty CX for $6,000, or another friend that bought a rusty '92 H22 4 door for $5,000.

Well given the fact that the fenders are a different shade of red from the rest of the car, I would say that would be your first clue about this "thing" ( possible damage history?) Unless you want a project and a half I say stay away.

there are a few dumb people in the world that will pay stupid amounts of money for cars that arent worth it like 6grand for a rusty b18 hatch but those people are sometimes hard to come by
