Here is one at a great price. I think that's what I'll do when it's time to get rid of the V...let someone else build it and sell to me at a loss.

I'll do the same thing. I have plowed stoopid money in my TA.

next time I'll by someone elses project. Either a C5 / C6 or Viper. THAT blue C5 car is basically exactly what I want. BUT I'm too far into the TA now, no turning back.

Just crashed the blower though. Looks like a bearing failure. 5500 RPMS and 13.4# of boost on a NEW motor and then BAM. Scared the crap out of me and I'm "relieved" its only the blower and did not take out the motor. :(

Another $1500 urinated into the wind.
