Quite a few mods and a salvage title.

Kind of surprised you can fit 19" wheels in the front.

Looks mean -

I wonder what the dyno will be with the turbos described.

$40K is still a lot of money for a car with a Salvage Title. In many (if not most) States you cannot title and register the car with a Salvage title. It is possible in many States to get the car inspected after you repair the car to try to obtain a "clean" Title but there are no guarantees and it can cost a lot of money. Also, with all of the work on the car you would expect more than just 1 picture of the motor and that one has the engine cover on so you can't see anything.

IIRC the salvage was not body or accident damage related, I believe this the Ex-Art Baldwin car that was repaired by Guy Therien (Portland) and the damage was due to a rear wiring fire at the ECU/fuse panel area. I saw the car when it was in Guy's garage and neither of us could believe how minor the damage was to result in a salvage title. Personally i like all of the mods, except one :) The down-swept exhaust exits look a little weird (IMHO)

It all depends on how much boost it’s running. With a proper a/f ratio and 1.3+ bar of boost, it could make 500+ rwhp. Considering the mods, I’m guessing it’s making about 400rwhp.

This is Art's old vehicle. He said on Facebook that the car does not have as much horsepower as the car dealer is claiming. I saw the car at LOG years ago and you cannot tell it had any fire damage. Guy (in Portland or Seattle?) fixed it up really well. Art had a solid car before he sold it.
