My big question would be, what is the reason for the salvage title. As a long time 300D owner, we all know why the odometer reads about 225,000. And there is no connection between the odometer and...

Moon 161 that just isn't the right way to look at it!

I hear a turbo 617 will overpower a 4spd manual, so they don't last behind one.
