Just if is comes as a complete kit or if you can get the parts needed from the manufacturer. from what ive heard the JRSC for the svt you can get a good deal on them used or save up some more and get the powerworks!

You can save money buying a used one IF you can find what you want. Just make sure it is ALL there. Complete. Talk to the seller first.
