    26k is actually an ok price for this. 34k is into crack pipe territory, but 26…If it were a hard top I’d be bidding on it.

    The overall idea is interesting, but I don’t think I like what they did with the turbo system. The intercooler appears to be solidly mounted to the chassis, and the couplers used to attach it to the turbocharger and the charge piping are not hump hoses or anything that would likely have much “give”, so it seems to me like something would break. Also not sure how much airflow they’re getting back there. Is there enough room to run an air filter on the turbo? The idea of having the turbo inlet BEHIND the rear wheel, without a filter (at least, none is pictured) makes me more than a bit nervous.
