I've had my FC for about 5 months now, and now my cousin wants one. He found a guy selling an s5 for $500. this is what my cousin told me. The guy said that it has a tII engine in there but there is no turbo, and he's been driing around in it. The car makes a lot of little popping noises all the time. misfires i think. I don't kno how the body is, or if its smart to drive a low compression engine with no turbo. What do you guys think? and does driving the 13bT with no T, cause the misfires?

Yeah, if the body is in good condition, its definitly worth the buy. Be sure its an S5 though, cause $500 for an S5 w/o the motor (and in good cond.) is pretty ******' cheap.

I have no idea what would happen if you ran a 13BT - the T. My thought would be it wouldn't run good at all...
