Oh i thought all GTP'* were charged. well that is the suck eh? learn something new everyday i guess. I heard they have a problem with the aluminum heads, when the engine first starts up. goes from 1k RPM to 4k and back to 1k. That is until the head expands and whatever leak was present seals up.
the ad says recent engine and trans change w 45k on the engine and trans. when i called him up he said the original owner (a teenager i believe) over revved the first engine. He had in the "drag mode", and planted the gas pedal. That alone got me thinkin'. How did he over rev it? isn't there a rev limiter in place? can the engine not take it? I was flush with uncertainty so i took my curiosity to the best place i know.
and it is the 3.4L dual overhead cam engine.
now there was a 1992 bonneville SSEI for 1,500.......hmmmmmmm. and that 1984 Porsche 944 for 1,500. I have ALWAYS wanted a 944. But VERY expensive to keep running.
Thank everyone for your help,
