Looks like a really nice car. I always wonder why people would spend a bunch of money and make their car this nice and then sell. But I guess we didn't get to hear about the new porsche or something they bought.

I don't know about that. With a good inspection, and all the parts replaced correctly, it could be a good deal. Or at least fair. Rust free, ready to roll.

If its really had all that work done, then its probably worth it. It would save you a bunch of time/headaches to get it to that level which not many people can accomplish.

Clearly it's 'enthusiast' owned, but thankfully it'll still pass calismog™.

And at that price it's safe from TB'ers...

Well, I have a lot to learn about +t. never done it. I'd have a mechanic help me. And while my mechanic is a genius, he's also not a turbo guy.

Both. An aw70 (non turbo auto trans) will *not* hold much boost at all. The m46 and m47 manual trans will hold just fine at moderate power levels

I think an aw70->aw71 swap is a direct swap or at least close. Not to mention you can get them for free a lot of the time.
