    I personally don't think thats worth 3k?

    im always wary of cars with short shifters fitted


    expected 180bhp+... what a redundant statement, proof or its bullshit - i wouldn't let it influence your decision.

    Why so? Greater stresses on the GB internals? lol

    It encourages rapid gear changing (which depending on the driver can be bad) and have known people who have worn syncros out. Its not that they are bad per se.

    Suppose it can't be far off 180bhp, as standard is 160bhp and it has de-cat exhaust system and filter.

    Lol if thats genuinly what you believe then go for it.


    My B16A2 was quick and had 4-1 manifold, exhaust, decent CA intake etc. And I doubt it would have made over 170bhp, more like 165 lol.

    x2, its always bullshit when people 'claim' a car to have anything done to it. Well most of the time anyway.


    Id go have a look at it first, but it seems a nice motor, try him for 2k
