A few things that jump out at me when I see a mod list like that:

1. Who did the head work? Homegrown head work could be asking for problems. "1 size larger" is not a measurement on ported heads.

2. Has it been professionally dyno-tuned? Lots of motor mods means the car's computer needs to be re calibrated to make it run correctly.

Also, check to make damn sure it only needs wire splicing or replacing to fix the tcs/abs issue. An ABS light is a BIG red flag for larger brake problems.

AND ONE MORE EDIT: It is lowered with springs but stock struts. He says the rears have been replaced(probably because lowering on stockers blows them fast), but fronts there is no mention of. Big no-no. Make sure they aren't blown.

And when I said that the ABS light is a big red flag for bigger brake problems, I didn't JUST mean the ABS. I meant BIGGER BRAKE PROBLEMS. If you plan to tear the car apart and replace and fix everything, I don't see the sense in spending $6K on it in the first place. If I am spending a good chunk of change on an older used car, it is going to be 100% trouble free. But, everything I said to look for, you simply made excuses for so I don't see why I or anyone else should offer more insight on the thing. It sounds like you are dead set on getting it and just asked questions to ask questions.

if it was anyone besides nizzy i would agree. but he gave you the benefit of the doubt and only gave you a 5 pter when it should be considered a perma ban. nizzy isnt a nazi mod, hes one of the laid back ones. although i do not support all of the staffs decisions this is one staff that i do support 100%. just let it go and move on. it will expire
