And Jeff added,
"Nor have I ... frankly, I think the letter is in error but since it served
my purpose at the time (i.e., to make the 2.3L motor a legal upgrade for
racing purposes), I wasn't about to point this out to AoA.  ;^)"

I'd bet it's not so much of an error as a lack of term definition. AofA is
using the 4000series to encompass the GT as well, hence the 2.3L production
option for late '87. Nowhere in the letter does it mention a 4000q.
