I'm looking at a 2000 v6, its is supercharged, and has been that way for 30000 miles out of the 60000 on the car. I talked to him and he says he has gone without a chip for that time because diablo sent the wrong one then he sent it back several times and finally they told him to forget it, so he never got the chip. I have asked several people on AIM and recieved mixed responses, but I was wondering what you guys think.he has gone 3 passes on the track and otherwise says he hasnt reamed on it he also says its not lean and is only rich when you really punch it if that has to do with anything, he claims that the engine is just fine. How do you think the engine is? would the car be in safe enough condition to buy? btw this is a long ways away and i dont want to drive out to it if its probably not gonna be alright. any help would be appreciated

derek

no problem. Im a little skeptical about no tune, and the fact that he spent the money to supercharge it but hasn't beat on it. cuz i know i would:)

you know my opinion on this.... any one that is to stupid to not get a dyno tune and run the car with no chip is not qualified to tell you what is/is not wrong with the car.

this guy has had a supercharger on a car for 30,000 miles and hasn't ever abused it, you know thats a lie. if you supercharge a v6 you want to show it off and if he hasn't updated the computer with a dyno tune or a chip, your might be in for some serious problems with some internal problems. even though its 7 psi you should have it checked out. and what is his asking price? if the car is ok then the first thing you should do is get a chip or dyno tune. good luck.

it should be fine just make sure you get a chip if you buy it. You cant buy it till next spring anyways so you got a long time to think about it ;)

If you do get this car I would think of taking it to a good tuning place and have them check it over, and have it given a full diagnostics.


And do your home work on who you take it too bfore just choosing anyone...

Well I have to agree with KrazyPony on this. It needs to be taken to a place that can dyno tune. The engine in this car could be a time bomb. If whoever has the car now was easy on it and did not drive it like a manic it might be all right, but whotakes it easy on a supercharged car. The price is a little steep for a V6 even with a supercharger. Power adders on a stock motor do not add much value to a car especially if it was never tuned in 30,000 miles

Just my thoughts!!!!

Yes tuning is everything, most people forget that part when adding a supercharger. What kind supercharger is it? Hopefully he upgraded his fuel system along with the supercharger. If it was N/A i'd say you wouldn't have much to worry about, but when it comes to power adders, you have to be wery of other peoples work.
