Re: Which years was K24 Turbo.

The k26/27 hybrid is a nice setup.  Just don't be caught with your pants. .
er revs down against a k24 setup.  I'm running 1.8bar in my 89 200tqw w/k24
and it will drop my brothers car w/ k26/27 running 2.0bar and two-piece if
the revs are under 3k.  After 3500 forget it.  The k26/27 running 2bar will
pull teeth.  I'd love to hear about someone running a k24/26 hybrid.  Could
prove interesting.
