I thought about that, but the car had no VIN - in fact it was etched off, so whoever had the car most likely new it was stolen. Being found at a chop shop doesn't bode well for the new owner's innocence either.

My question is, didn't she get an insurance payout when the car was written off? How long before the insurance company comes asking for its money back? I'm also skeptical of the upgrades, since I doubt she bought the car for speed in the first place, and now it is a high-profile target in an area known for theft activity.

If your car is stolen, you're usually better off not getting it back.
She probably didn't have comprehensive/collision coverage; hence once the car is recovered, it goes back to her.

If she did have comprehensive/collision coverage and was paid out the total theft settlement payment; if the car is recovered, the insurance company would just sell it at some salvage auction to try to re-coupe the loss paid out.

I deal with this on a daily basis

So, judging from the video, what all do you guys think was installed? What motor is that? Obviously we know that they ripped out the auto tranny and replaced it (crudely) with a manual.

I noticed they installed some very spiffy red drum brake covers on the rears.

That motor is a H22.
