Yea, my 80q dies above 4k.  I'll be tearing into the
timing belt soon and I bet I find that the belt is off
by a tooth or two.  The power below 4k is awesome,
almost feels like a big V6.  I actually kind of like
it like this because I use it puttering around town,
and the 90tq when I'm in full urban assult mode.
