    This was an 82 RS Turbo Ihad traded for a KX 500 I had. I loved the car and I think I somehow got one of the good ones as far as the carbed turbos were concerned... it always ran/idled perfect,and I had the boost turned up to 13 psi. Unfortunately, back then I was too stupid to know that that was alot of boost for 9:1, NO intercooling, pump gas, etc... and it eventually popped a head gasket. I junked the car, because he front framerails were fubar'd.

    It was totally gutted inside cept for two seats... no console.. had a carpet tho.. but sway bar, sound insul, etc gone... I tied a 1980 TA with a rebuilt 1970 olds 455 in it.. lol.. and beat [badly] a 79 Capri 302 T5 3.73s but still the stock 140 HP 302.. 2bbl. This was in 1993...

    12.26 @ 113 MPH on old <small> turbo and head on 26 psi. Stock short block, 3.73s, T5, lots of bolt ons, A237, stock EEC. Now: BIG turbo, and new fully ported [by me] stock valve head. 11.50s spring for sure.
