Default Thinking of buying a car....

....Brianteels (from L67swap.com) 96 GP with the L67 swap and 5 speed swap with mods is up for sale for $6000, I am seriosely tempted to take him up on the offer, but id have to sell the Bonne, so im torn. It is a solid 13 second car and it may be in the 12s with the 5 speed, what should I do?

Take half of the 6 grand, put it in to the Regal, and keep the other 3 grand for yourself.

I'd stick with what you have. I have heard that the 5 speed he used isn't really known for its reliability under higher HP situations.
