Sounds like he abused it. 16.5 is safe for stage II numbers with EM, but there are no supporting exhaust mods. So, I assume it is by MBC. I would stay away. The tranny is known to break, but typically it is from abuse. This car was driven hard and modified somewhat inappropriately.

Hold off until you can find a stock vehicle - that way, you're sure that any modification was done correctly.
