    The 6 was dropped off yesterday by rollback and the boss lady is pretty excited to get started on it. The car is in pretty good shape. Minus the engine. Lol. No rips in the leather. One very small ding in the passesnger door, little rust on the passenger side wheel well and a scratch on the drivers side rear quarter. All of this can be fixed fairly easy. Picked the car up for what I think is a great deal. Motor is locked up but it has new CST4, CS catless down pipe,CS race pipe, CS injector seals, he said new injectors but I assume he had them serviced, AP, CS hpfp internals, Sure Motorsports lower rear diff mount, CS 3” intake, CS egr delete, new rear bilstein shocks, Damond vta occ and 4 new comp2 tires.
    Probably won’t add much to it other than fmic, catback exhaust, bov, clutch while it’s a part and an engine of course. Still need to do some research to find out what should be replaced as preventative on the 6. Then start the tuning process with PD.
    I haven’t checked the engine yet to see what happened or if it’s even salvageable. As soon as we don’t have snow ass deep to a giraffe(exaggeration) and temps in the teens I will check in to it more. Maybe sooner if I get my 3 motor swap done soon.
    If there are common issues with parts on these cars that should be replaced before it breaks , feel free to let me know. BCDEB0A9-6415-4B5F-A232-ADFC4DCAD623.jpeg 19ADCE72-325F-4793-A8F4-5DD6D99B2E5B.jpeg A3BE3335-D357-4B36-9850-8E994CC97D74.jpeg

    If the wifey ever plans on launching the car, billet bearing caps for the transfer case and a DSS driver rear axle is recommended. Other than that, looks like you have a solid base with all the upgrades it already has

    I couldn’t pass it up. I couldn’t buy the parts he put on it for what I gave for the whole car. They was all installed in the last 6 months. He gave me the file on the car that had all the service receipts and everything bought for the car since it was new. The motor was replaced in 2017 with a used motor from a cx7. Dealership replaced 2 injectors in 2019 I believe it was.
    I’m not sure if she will ever launch the car or not but I know her asshole husband will. Looks like I better look in to the bearing caps and axle.
