Sell it or let it sit?

I'm leaving for Chicago 17 Sep 07 then I'll be at Ft Benning, GA 29 Sep 07 then off to Iraq 10-14 days later. Do I keep my Vortech SC and put it in when I return next year or just sell it now and look for another one when I get back? Will letting it sit for a year+ hurt it?

The car will be stored up at my Dad's house in Woodbury, MN while I'm gone.

Keep it. It won't go down in value while not being installed. More importantly, you'll have something else to look forward to coming back to finish.

Good luck over there,

This is a no brainer...keep it! Just wrap it air tight in the bag and keep it in normal room temp.
