Well most ppl give the moral of the story at teh end, however, here i will give it at the beginning: Dont live in NJ I drove my way to morristown nj to a state inspection facility to have my suspension checked... this is because the wise n all knowing government of NJ decided to pass a law that requires all vehicles w/ modified suspensions to be tested for "road worthyness" in otehr words BS... ok so im at the station n im waiting n waiting next thing i kno a cop shows up...ok fine w/e they call me inside teh building n inform me that hte transmission was stolen out of a car in california! ... they then inform me that i can be arrested for receiving stolen property n the nJ state police have to investigate thsi matter n that the car cannot leave the grounds until then...but i talked to my lawyer n they cant arrest me cuz i bought the car in good intentions...so wat i think is that the shop that built the car just put in a hot trans...so i have to suffer now as a pedestrian...but odds that i will have to wait until #1 teh cops get around to sorting this out #2 i hear from the insuracne company on the stolen Civ n c if they want their trans back odds r they wont n hopefully ill b able to buy it off them...then i just have to worry about getting the car thru regular inspection which will now be impossible because the guys at teh DMV inspected the whole car so now i ahve to correct the following: -Tint -LR brake drag (i knew bout this) -Exhaust is not baffled its just "straight thru" -under neon wires (thought it wasnt a big deal) -lose body panels (dent) -i need to shop these guys some sort of "documentation" on teh turbo system to make sure its hooked up properly (any ideas on wat i should show them?) -Headlites r not DOT or SAW approved does anyone have any clue on this crap...i personally think theyre just busting my balls Quick history on the car itslef : build in texas by vsv performance then went to penn. then i bought it from a guy in penn. Where things stand now tho are that im out of a car n i mite not get this car back...because they mite decide to rip it apart to check for other stolen parts So please if anyone out there has gone thru this hell share ur stories w/ me help a guy out here U can check out my car on cardomain... http://www.cardomain.com/member_pages/view...?page_id=342039 Irene...RIP?
