Default Good Deal or not?



I have a friend that knows a guy that has a 93 Mustang GT 5.0 for sale. It is a 5 speed, that when he bought it didn't have third gear. My buddy said he thinks that is fixed now. The guy has a turbo and intercooler for it but hasn't installed it yet. He was planning on painting it so it is currently primered. </P>


My question is, is 3500 to much? He said he would sell it for 3500 w/o the turbo and intercooler installed or 3700 w/ them installed, plus he would give me the paint that he has to get the car painted. I am just curious as to what you guys think about the price.</P>

Couple things to note - 93 doesn't have forged internals so they're not as robust (gotta be more careful with the boost).
$200 for the turbo? Even if you don't want it you should buy it with the kit, then remove it and stick it on ebay - if it's not thrashed you should be able to get WAY more than $200 for a turbo, intercooler, and all of the bits.

I'm that same boat with you man. I need to get rid of my Honda to get a stang. I'm just saying that I personally wouldn't turbocharge my 5.0 that's all, I'm not saying you shouldn't.

uhh why wouldn't you want turbo? </P>


and your sig is ironic...seeing as it says you like things fast enough to do stupid in, but you have a honda... i guess just getting in a honda, especially one that will be in motion (hence the fast enough) is stupid though...</P>
