Sound like a Good deal! Kelly Blue Book has the value of a 2001 SSEi w/ 30K
At $20,680. But that'* just to give you an idea of the cost maybe.

Boost gauge should read about 6.5 at wOT if it is stock pulley size. At idle you should be at -8 to -10. You might want to check the trunk for any signs of water leakage (water spots) and also interior front carpet. Check sunroof, cd-changer (make sure you have a cartridge), 1st and 2nd remote for seat settings (each one should be set to the appropriate driver), all windows, power mirrors, cargo netting in the trunk....

do a little searching around here and you'll see enough horror stories to where you'll rethink wanting to put a bra on your 2000+ bonnie.

Advice taken guys.............NO BRA. and thanks for the other comments and advice. I'll pick her up tomorrow or the day after. I told them to take their time cause the weather is a cold, snowy, mess right now.

1. Does not have CD Changer; just CD. Should it have a changer?

2. I'll check boost under throttle when I get her, but I believe I did see -8 or so at idle. I'll have to read up on boost....my first supercharger.

3. There was moisture on the spare tire but I attribute that to the dingies laying freshly cleaned, soaking wet carpets on the floor of the trunk in 17 degree weather. Combine that with inside heat and I think (hope) it was enough to condense on the tire and jack. I double-checked the floor, under the tire and it was dry. It'* been too darned cold around here for water to have gotten in the trunk, but I remember you guys mentioning that so I checked that first.

4. I spent over 4 hours straight going over every last detail I could find and to make sure that everything worked fine. I studied the owner'* manual for about one of those hours. The only thing I remember forgetting was checking the battery. Then I remembered it was under the seat. I believe my voltage was measuring about 14.4 or so. How do you get to that thing anyway!

The CD Changer was an option, you may not have it. The boost gauge shows boost as well as vacuume. The - numbers are vaccume and positive numbers are boost. To get to your battery move your front seats all the way forward to give you room in the back, then push in and then up on each side of the back seat.

Thanks for the boost and battery info.

I take it when I see negative value boost it means the pistons are drawing more vacuum than the SC is producing pressure. Sounds about right. Now when the boost goes into plus figures the pressure is overcoming vacuum and voila............now she'* cookin'!
