Yes I do and it only takes me ~30 min to read my (non digest) mail if I just 
delete the stuff that does not pertain to me.

Not exactly.  The models I believe ran simultaneously and the turbo's are

 Just because it does not brake anything it doesn't mean that it should be 
done.  Just a hunch but I would tend to think that waiting till it brakes is 
an accident waiting to happen.

IMHO= in my humble opinion.  The H position can also be changed to other 
letters such as f(u*****) or no letters at all.

BTW= by the way.  I just have been trying to figure them out one at a time but 
I am sure there is a book available.
        4K engine specs were requested by someone
     I didn't read this carefully, but I think it was just a stock 86, 
     which would be the same as my 84.
Not the same depending on the month of manufacture.  You can tell by the 
engine code on the VIN.  5th digit.  a=110hp?(bentley typo?) b=115
My 86 has 115 stock @5500 with 126lb of torque.  The older model has 110 @5500 
and 122@2500.  If someone can tell me differant please pipe in and correct me.
