I think I meant 87.5, built in 6/87, I suspect it's the 2.3 l.  Nifty
design feature, you can't get at the injectors without pulling the top
half of the intake manifold.

That's nice.  Why didn't we get it?  On another note, slightly, the 87.5
appears to have a different exhaust manifold as well, about time I'd
say, I never could figure out why the coupe didn't get the headers like
the 4kq.
