    Exclamation looking at a 00 T/A got a few questions & concerns opinions

    Wife and i was out car shopping today were looking for another LS1 T/A.
    We had a 01 Formula awhile back and sold it off.
    Anywy we found a Green 00 T/A today 53k on the clock, auto, really nice shape body wise however i have some serious concerns about some other things is what i'm writing about.

    car has headers, dunno brand couldn't see them to well some i dunno what cold air intake setup on it. no cats, an aftermarket throttle body, edlebrock strut brace, duals all the way back to a flowmaster muffler all in all done pretty well not a hack job.
    there was also a hypertech programmer in the trunk however the OBD port wasn't working so we couldn't find out anything about the programming.
    assuming it was the fuse blown?
    however there are some wires in the engine compartment that have been cut and retaped up.
    looks like someone either changed out the injectors or something.?
    several of the injector wires had been replaced with what looked like new ends. and the injectors looked new, the injectors was also grey in color??

    wife found 3 wires over at the engine computer harness that had been clipped and retaped up. on the passenger side near the firewall.
    also when we drove the car it ran fine steering was good everthing was fine..BUT it has an SES light on a ABS Light on and a traction control inop light on..
    Btw there asking 8950.00 for high, opinions?

    Thanks, Charles

    ^^ Check the cig-lighter fuse sometimes when this fuse blows it effects the OBD ports power...For the ABS check wheel speed sensors! ( i only know this cause the other gents on this website told me too)..Ill let the others guide you on the rest Im not sure on the price,,,Mileage seems low enough?

    Price is a bit high IMO. Most of the problems sound like simple fixes though. I'd either make them fix the issues, or seriously talk down the price. I'd go more around $6k. But, there are quite a few f-bodies around this area. If they are harder to find by you, the price will be higher. You could also take the car to a mechanic you trust, and get his opinion, before you consider buying.

    if wires were cut and taped near injectors was the EGR still on car?
    mileage seems great almost too low for a modded t/a..
    as stated earlier, to it to a mechanic took look over.. those cut wires by CPU could be of concern.
