OK guys and girls
There is this stealth for sale with tons of miles on it (91 TT with 168k on it) the guy has no service papers on it he says that second gear grinds when shifted hard (didnt drive it so i couldnt say) also he said it hums at around 80 mph
there was lots of dust under the hood and some oil around the engine bay mostly around the front where you put the oil.old oil but still oil. my question is.

1) Is this a good buy at 5200?
2) how much would it be to rebuild the engine and trans and major tune-up?
3) would you touch this car knowing this 411


thanx guyz

It'd probably be about 3 grand to do the tranny, and I'd seriously consider doing a 2nd gen conversion while you're at it, to avoid t-case failure issues. Engine rebuilds are largely dependent on how much you plan to have done, but 3-6 grand is a rough range.

My 2 cents is that unless you're planning on modding the car into a BEAST (at which point you'll be replacing everything anyway), you'd be happier waiting for a lower mile, later year car. If you do plan on heavy mods, then it could be a good deal.
