<< Does any one know how well built the MERKUR XR4Ti are!!!!  I know its a
 Ford Mustang engine on steriods ( I think???)  How are they in snow here in
 New England (no quattro remarks please :-) And are they fun to drive, MPG,
 engine stress from turbo???

First off, they are rear wheel drive, not front drive.  Secondly it is NOT a
ford mustanfg on steriods.  It is turbocharged, but reliabilty as I've heard,
is not that great.  Here in Michigan you don't see hardly any (I personally
haven't seen on in over a year and I drive ALOT!  Fun to drive, that depends.
 How much do you like turbo lag...
