My sister's boyfriend has one. He blew the head gasket by overboosting it(vaccum hose popped off or something). Anyway I told her I'd give him $1200 for it as it sits. I need something that gets better than 8mpg. Figure I could slap a head gasket in it in a weekend and drive it back instead of my burb. So is there something more I should know about these cars? Its FWD turbo car. No idea if he will accept my offer yet. I know its upgraded in some way. Has a boost controller, exhaust and some other stuff.
