Looking into this SVT with the Vortec Kit. Guy has had it a little less than 1 year and is unsure of any prior history. Is this a mistake for my only vehicle? Its been blown for at least 8 years as per the dyno sheet he sent me. The headlights and taillights give me the info I need as to how it was probably ran...no idea what condition the clutch or timing belt are in. No idea if it has a tune or injectors or fuel pump. Guys says it runs really well but who knows? Thoughts and feedback appreciated.

Its a 15 year old car that has been boosted for half its life. Even with the low miles for its age, there will be many maintenance needs in the near future, especially if it hasn't been done already, a lot of parts wear out 100-150k. The real question is how has the car been driven, that you'll never know.

As a fun car on the surface it looks like a great deal, to run as a DD maybe not, Unless you're willing to risk not having a car should something happen.
