I took pics of that car at the Tulsa '07 car show. If I remember corretly it had an 1835cc engine in it. I do remember that the owner was full of crap.

Yeah i think so i never looked really close but i think i saw a hole the size of the cooler under it then they mounted it on top. Actually a neat way of doing it, I would think it would be cool fresh air all the time.

It was 4 years ago I talked to the dude. I know the car has changed owners 2 or 3 times since then. I have seen it on Craigslist more then once. Doesn' really matter, since it doesn't run you will know the real truth after you tear it apart and look at the damage and figure out what it needs to be rebuilt.

One reason it overheated is because of the fan shroud. Those aftermarket shrouds do not have any directional vanes inside and are the worst thing you can put on a street engine.

Yea Jim, That car used to be in OKC a few years ago. He was at the track a few times during test n tune and I talked with him. Yes it would be a good car for somebody that knows about turbo's. The only problem with driving it on the street is that the car has no front brakes.
