I guess it’s inevitable, after countless times dealing with potential buyers of Project 944 either getting cold feet or using our slightly leaky (but still boosting well!) turbo as a huge bargaining chip, i’ve decided to bite the bullet and ship in a reconditioned unit and get this job done once and for all!
