Default Buying a 1999 civic that has some work done to it. Should I keep the turbo kit?

The guy says he'll drop the price $500 if he takes the turbo off. It's a B20b swapped engine with about 65k miles. It's been up for sale for at least a month now. Keep the turbo or drop the price $500? I haven't had a chance to check this car out in person yet. Just wanted to hear your opinion's.

From what it sounds like you don't work on cars much, keep the turbo. If it turns out you don't like it sell it on eBay and use the money to put it back to stock. Upgrading to a turbo later will cost you and it'll be hard to find a place that'll do it. He's making you think it's a better deal without.

I wouldnt get it. alot of people throw turbos on and dont even think about the other stuff that goes along with it. if there was corners cut on this car then i dont think it'll last u long. id play it safe and get a stock car. that way u know what u got and how reliable it is.
