hey all,
im currently in the middle of swapping a guy my tx3 turbo for his 1997 series 2 xr8 (el obviously).. i was wondering if ther are any problems with these cars and engines.. if there is any problems with the drive trains etc.. it looks a nice car and im looking forward to getting it..
it is on carsales.com.au vehicle id:4264842.. if anybody knows the car or the owner let me know if what you think..

That's not bad but in my lowly opinion maybe the price is a bit high for those kay's.
