I'm confused... in the ad it says the engine and trans were built by VW Paradise. I remember Ocean Street Dan saying that previous owner Dave Pickering assembled some "leftover performance parts" in building the engine for the rail in one of the PRA videos. I wouldn't be surprised if Pickering took credit for someone else's work (see my earlier comments for my reasoning), but I'm just curious as to who did in fact build the engine that's in the car; perhaps it was sold at some point without an engine or trans?
We had nothing to do with it after it was sold. Todd Gosney bought a Pauter long block from us for $4000. It was beyond used up but would work. But who knows whats in it now, the car has past through three different owners.

if your talking about phillips it will only be with a bigger turbo, he's maxed out with what he has now. maybe next year though

That's another down payment on a rental property for me so I would buy it but ten years from now I can buy a new one with the profits on that home.

You can never have too many homes. We are having a hard time getting forclosures now, I lost out on three in a row in the area we are buying in. One had 30 offers on it!

What ended up happening with this car/engine?

Car being out of cert was it cut up and engine sold or what?

Be nice to know the engine was being used again after sitting so many years
