Twin turbo, manual Italian car in red. Parked at 26,000 miles so LOW MILEAGE.

YOU ARE ALREADY DOMINATING IF YOU BUY IT. Great for Lemons, perfect for a Lemons Rally.

The want is real.

I'm still kicking myself for not buying the drive train from one for $400 a number of years ago.

It is right around the corner from me if you need it looked at.

Pssshhh.

I've been trying to goad cheseroo into buying one for a couple of years now.

This one has been around for at least 6 months if not a year

And he passed on the idea of DD one of these and racing the other-- and they are just pretty close to him (within 45 miles).

As I told Spank, the Jag x-type that I bought for a dollar with the intention of making a LeMon but have been DDing just broke down so I'm riding my bicycle to work.  I could buy 2 BiTurbos and still be riding my bicycle to work.

Still, the only car out there that makes me go "how hard could it be?" is the BiTurbo and even if there's already a dozen out there on the track, at some point when the timing is right I will do it.

Uh, you dodged the bullet on this one. These twin-turbo Masers might possibly be THE most frustrating engine to service and tune.... as in a lifetime of pain and misery frustrating.  But I will say, once you pull all the hoses and wires off the engine and bead blast the corrosion off all the aluminum bits, the power plant makes a stunning base for glass-topped coffee table.  So there's that....

I spent years playing with turbo dodge cars. I think it's safe to say I enjoy misery.

Would it be: "Maseratochist" or "Miseratochist"?
