well its best off buying a gsr and then putting the turbo in yourself and then tuning it so that you will know for sure thats it going to run right and give you the most out of it.

yeah what that guy above me said. when buying a forced injection car that comes naturally aspirated (buying a car with an aftermarket turbo kit in it because it comes stock with no turbo) is dangerous since you don't know the condition of the engine, turbo, pipes, etc. it's not unheard of for people to sell their turbo'd cars that are about to die on them for a decent amount of money, leaving the problems to the next owner while the guy gets himself a new car. its also dangerous because if not tuned correctly or has bad parts in the car i.e. worn out gaskets, cracked pipes, etc, it runs the risk of destroying your engine thus causing you to fork over more money to either get a new engine or to buy a new car. if you want to be really safe, get a car that comes turbo'd stock, like the subaru wrx/sti, mazdaspeed, evo's, rx7, etc.
