Re: Svenske's "R" for sale on Ebay?? (s60rdood)

For $100,000 worth of parts and labor, I want to see it. The ad needs a few pics of the crossdrilled totors and brakes, exhaust, intercooler, interior gauges and under the hood, etc.<p>Sounds like the typical Svenske BS. All talk and no show. Lets see the proof of the Stage 3...

Freakishly, there are several happy buyers if you look at the seller's rating. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>As for the Svenske car, didn't the seller claim "only" $30K in improvements when he tried to sell it on Swedespeed? Also, where are the gauges and the exhaust? I don't see any sign of either in the tiny photos? I wonder if the car doesn't even run. You would think he would pull it out of that cramped parking space before taking photographs.<p>- Tryg

from that they list there, i dont see $100,000 in value. <p>And if $100k was sunk into this thing, I would expect a little more than "capable of 500hp"<p>i love how they reference the 4C system as if it were something they added...and the fact that they are still on stock internals....booooooo!<p>oh yeah....HATE the wheels

I'm more interested if it's a scam....tiny pics that don't really get bigger when you click them, no detailed pics, BS prices and the fact that it's a new seller with 0 feedback. I'm sorry if it is a "real" auction and offend the seller, but get some better BIGGER pics on there, and more detail!!

that was my first thought too, when i saw the 0 feedback rating. whenever i buy something, i always check to make sure the user has been around for awhile AND a decent feedback score. <p>you are right...this doesn't look too legit.

I noticed this was also indicated:<p>Volvo Titanium Connecting Rods / Low Compression Pistons<p>question is, did he up the engine capacity in the process of reducing the compression further? What about strengthening the engine block? 30psi = 2bars, that's a lot of boost for a stock block, I've seen one destroyed because of overboost.

Re: (R_Rated)

This satisfied owner was smart enough to know that, assuming your CAI is doing its job, you don't need fake vents in your fenders.<p>Can you get even more HP by putting the side vents on your door? I bet the window motor cooling this mimics would be huge....<p><IMG SRC="http://i10.ebayimg.com/01/i/05/f1/90/5b_1_sbl.JPG" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0">
