Time to drop a new motor in as I found out earlier today it has roughly 45% leakage across all four.

Pure and utter nonsense bro. I could find some other vehicle with no real connection to it or depending on choices/options, spend $10-12k (min probably) and have potential for 4-500 hp with the turbo I just dropped in. No new car will do that for me without being a bigger loss comparatively off the start. And I also commited a long time ago to at least one motor rebuild or swap.

Project Refurb will go on.

Someone's got quite the scanner app then. Or a shady dude works at a dealership working the keys just like the (semi bad) remake of Gone in '60 Seconds.
