The heathens have seen the light (or the boost)

Waiting in the barber shop for a long overdue trim (I'm frightening my
flight students), I was leafing through a newish issue of Rod & Truck.

New MB500SL, $90,000. Hahahahah

Dodge/Chrysler "Razor" two seater, 6 speed, TT knockoff, $14,500 MSRP . . .

Best item was something from GM's immediate future - a derivation of their
4.2 V-6 engine, a 3.5 liter inline _5_ cylinder, turbo, fuel injected,
computer controlled, makes 315 hp stock. Sheesh, sounds like Audi in 1984,
but at almost twice the displacement.

Now if I wait a year or so, I'll be able to buy one of these engines from
the pick and pull for their standard price of $179.95 ("any engine in the
yard, $179.95"). Wonder if it will fit into my 86 5 KS? Wonder who will
have a chip and a spring for it? Man, 350 to 400 reliable HP? and it fits?
sign me up!

Best Regards,

Mike Arman
