Sounds like the previous owners should not of been driving period. I would make shut to check it out thoroughly. If it has a new motor under warranty then I would think about it. At least you know whats been going on, keep your eyes open for other deals as we end the year there are a lot of good deal to be found out there. Good luck

Price? pics? There is a red MS6 at Streetunit performance that they just put a brand new engine in for cheap and has been treated right.

Kinda sort local to you and know a good majority of the Jville peeps.

these guys maybe able to tell you about the car too.

IMO, this sounds like a mess I wouldn't want to get into w/o it being stupid cheap. like 5k cheap....

AutoTrader.com hopefully that link will work but its $15,000 with 70,000 mi on the body and its kind of a mess but there are only two speeds in jax and one is modded with upgraded turbo and is knocking and since my 6 was totaled out i cant travel to test drive others right now i really want a gt but like i said i cant find one close enough to check out and i think the guys at JMOC went down to episode m and seen it and told me about it

15K is way high from what you describe. Run for the hills from that one. Less they are willing to drop the price to like 10k, maybe 12k at the most. Knowing that you are going to be spending on the back end to make sure it is reliable.

Call up the guys at SU, they maybe willing to drive the one FS up there.

Yes that is Mark's old Speed6. they took the built engine out and replaced it with a new one and listed it FS. I emailed Cullen about it

Mark

this is the car. it still has a bunch of the CF parts left on it, and red lugs, but everything beyond that is back to stock from what I gather.
