RE: K24 finally installed in 1986 5000cstq

You know Michael, if you are running less than 2.2 bar, a K24 in _your_ MC
Ur-Q may spool full bar below 2,500.  That sounds fun.  What a screamer your
car would be...

Running anything more than 2.2 bar seems to kill the turbo (quickly on MC's,
slower on 20vt's, ref Sarge's old 2.5 bar car) on K24 equipped cars.  This
is my opinion only, based on traffic from the 20vt and S-cars lists.
