RE: engine swap for 4kcsq

The '85 is probably KH(?) code and the '87 is MC. KH develops about
145hp vs 162hp of the MC. The KH probably does not have water cooled
turbo, so the reliability of the turbocharger is questionable. I'd go
with the '87 engine.

88 Renault Medallion wagon (mom's)
91 mountain bike (just in case both cars broke at the same time :-)
