• Installed a boost gauge but can't fix or add another temperature gauge? I think that is probably something you fix or not drive the car.
    Sounds like a lot of deferred maintenance issues will be waiting for you upon purchase.
    Winter driven… Think of all the fun you will have wrenching on said deferred maintenance.

    Now for $4.5K wrenching might be OK.

  • It's actually a 2.2 I5. With the right exhaust they make a lovely noise. These cars are such extraordinary all rounders after you work the bugs out. At 3800lbs you have to swap out the front brakes though, the stockers are hopeless. The chips for these put you right about 280-300hp depending. Generally I'm not into just chipping the boost up beyond the design thresholds of a stock turbo but the stock k24 has a little room at the top. The 034 catalog can make these as bonkers as you want them. Non-car people don't give it a second glance, so you fly under the radar. The engine and trans are solid but you're going to have a never ending small fixes list , as with any old German car. Oh, and the fuel mileage is quite good for a 300 hp car. 27 ish MPG on average.
