      New was about 175,000 miles ago so I can't remember exactly how my car
ran then but, my 91' 200  20 valve turbo has had a chip for about 80,000 miles
with no apparent ill effects. It's still running well enough that I'm hoping to
go to Watkins Glen for the quatro club driving school this fall.
