[V8] My V8 might be sold...

Now thats a nice example.

 A few things I notice & have an opinion on....;-)

93's are supposed to have the Carbon fiber trim... that trim looks dark. so I think it came from a 95.5 //s6.
 Looks like half the inj cover is broke.
Looks like the guy might have been a non-smoker cause there looks to be a boost gauge were the ashtray should be.
 The 93's all so come with an all Aluminum intercooler & cross over pipe.

 Now some opinions/comments...whatever.....;-)

 Big brakes are nice. Kinda looks like a Kit.... I'd look to see what the caliper brackets are made out of. Places like ECS who sold BBK's for the //scars had a bad run of Aluminum brackets that would crack.

 The cam is nice... but I'de ask what chips are being run & what turbo. You can MAX out the K24 pretty quick. & ask if the Exhaust mani was upgraded (Rs2). I can't see if the WG cap top was modded or not? 16PSI is pretty mild though... but I'de still ask about what "other" parts are there!
 All so sounds like he updated the trans with a wide geared 95.5 //S6. If he did a LW FW I'd guesse he used a 7A... with eather a Spec clutch kit.. or Southbend. I'de ask him!

 Things I would FREAK OUT ABOUT.....

 I would remove those H&R sport springs rite away! I can not tell you how many V8's & //s4/6's I've seen & heard about that have busted there front springs.
 Me & a friend just a few weeks ago did a T-belt for a guy with a 95 //s6.. I noticed he had H&R sport springs & took a look @ them. Well I found that the top 5 inches of the spring had broke were the clear protective coating was. I have pics I can send you if you wanna take a look.

 But sighn up for the scar list here on Audifans. Great bunch of very knowlegable guys!!!!!!
