There is no such thing as a 2.5 NB spec. The 2.5 is designed to use NA components, and is better than any NB bits would be

I meant was it ready to bolt onto nb. I worded it poorly.

I do have a stock auto. radiator that came out of it. Miles unknown, but the plastic tanks are not green yet.

I forgot to put in the ad, the car also has working AC that was just re-done with R134a last summer. I did put in the PS pump delete pulley bought from joey48422 as well.

As long as they don't go with the car. I have some folks coming this week to check it out. Shipping for wheels and tires usually runs about $100-$150 depending on ZIP from 48108

Dangit...I've had two people now who have wanted the car to only have it vetoed by SWMBO. Grrr...

Frustration bump. Great price for an awesome car! I am really underpricing it!

Another buyer flaked. What am I doing wrong? Too honest?

Edited for clarification: The buyer that flaked never even came to see the car. He was supposed to send me a deposit, but never did and stopped returning emails or calls. He said he saw it here though so that surprised me that it was a GRMer. Just hope nothing bad happened as he was very nice on the phone.
