id be carfull with the 14lbs boost on an OE block wouldnt take it for long with a heavy foot
price is a bit right i guess....
remember a usa vehical will be cheaper but will always stay that way and must be disclosed in a resale.... but they are cheaper..... lol
Don't worry about 14 lbs of boost on the block, it will handle it just fine all day long, even if you were a track warrior, it's all in the tune.
MAKE SURE YOU ASK WHERE/WHO TUNED IT.
There are some stock blocks that run 600+ horsepower, those can let go at any second, but from the performance kit he has on there, he's in the area of 400. The motor can take it no problem, its when you start inching close to the 500 mark you have to start thinking going built. If he had a 'canned' (email) tune, those are general, and not neccesarily all that great and dont tap in to some extra hp that can be found with a good dyno tune.
Also, 99-02 have only 4 threads holding in the sparkplugs, these are known as plugshooters. If you drive it, listen for a faint ping. Also, before purchasing check the plugs for any signs of anything uncommon. ASK HIM if he has ever torqued the plugs, as I am an 01 owner and check mine regularly.
Also, 01 had the cruise control recall.
As for the price, it is low for the canadian market.
Yes they are going cheap in the states, but they are holding their value here much better. If you look in Kijiji most are going for no lower than 18k, some in the mid 20 range.
If you are interested in it, MAKE SURE you do your research before purchasing, or there is always potential for detonation and you'll be left with no warranty as it was bought privately!!
