The thing that pisses me off the most is that I told him over and over again that I was willing to pay up to $1000 more to get the cleanest, lowest mileage engine possible.
I will hold out on final judgement after some finality, but so far I am not impressed and extremely disappointed.
Looks like this will probably end up costing me some dough, not to mention the time to ship it back and find another vendor if they are not willing to work with me.
You have Ver8 Twin Scroll Spec C. You should have an IHI VF36 ball bearing turbo, instead of the Standard IHI VF37 thrust bearing turbo.
JDM model years go like this MY01-02 = Ver7. MY03-04 = Ver8. MY05-06 = Ver9. Those are the 6 years the GD chassis was produced.
