Default Did you know that SSEI'* have a Turbo.....

I saw this and i thought everyone would get a kick outta it:

it seems like a good deal but the car must not have been taken care of since they think it has a removable turbo!

That'* a good price, seeing how I can have that car looking good again for under $100 for the fender and ****...

i think they are refering to the A/T because old school rwd trannys are Turbo-350'* and 400'* and such maybe he thought that they still are even in FWD cars

But then they refer to it as a turbocharger and said that it is making noise. If they thought it was the tranny making the noise they wouldn't refer to the tranny, even if it were a Turbo 350/400, as a turbocharger.

My husband said that it is the Turbo Charger that is making noise & that you can either just let it be, or remove the Turbo. It doesn't effect anything.

does her husband work at jiffy lube???
