    You are not wrong.
    The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry. Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms, 1929

    Its not even a whole car; the cold air intake runner is gone. And the rebuilt title would scare me.

    1. The car's engine has been modified with aftermarket parts
    2. the owner claims a "custom chip" to improve MPG. These "chips" are a known scam and says a lot about the quality of work performed on the rest of the car
    3. The car's ECU seems to be unmapped for 1.)

    You are not wrong.

    Sadly, this individual bought the car and made it quite worse.
