    Built to handle 700hp for $6k is a little shaky. I suppose "built to handle" isn't in the same ballpark as "makes"..

    None the less, you got an incredible deal for a running h22 turbo lude.. Just go get it tuned IMMEDIATELY. If its untuned, or someone did a bad job of it, the motor will be toast in no time on 19psi.

    A good deal... but i would get a tune, and if it was built right im sure u can turn the turbo down to 3psi to drive it to NC.... or you can just remove the turbo all together till you get there and reinstall it! ether way good pick up

    It would be worth it, the guy that runs the shop has a 450+ turbo K20, has never had the valvecover off, he has been making that much for 2 years now, they do really good work.
