Formally Boosted Cars

Would you buy a car that was once boosted before?

Reason I ask is that people have given crap about buying a boosted car.

I am going to be returning my svt to stock in the spring and selling it. I will get a compression test after the base JRSC is taken off and selling the car.

Now a question for you would you buy my car LOL. Not trying to sell it just trying to get an honest opinion on the matter.

The car has had the base JRSC running at 6lbs of boost for around 19000 miles. there are absolutely no issues at all with it. So assuming the compression test checks out would you buy my car or a car like it?

depends what your asking too...
if there were two identical cars and one had been boosted before and they were both the same price, and both run fine...the one that wasnt boosted will def sell first IMO

I wouldn't nothing against you but personally if I was just some random guy and was looking at the car to buy and saw that it was boosted I would think it was beat on.

May not be the case but that is what people think.

Unfortunately, most people (myself included) shy away from buying any car that's been modified unless they know the owner and the car's history very well. It's just to big of a red flag that the car was driven hard.

i think you would be better off selling it with the JRSC installed.
