Re: 5 bangers galore

   If your allergic to autos made in other places than the father land stop reading 

   I'm not defecting to Volvo but a friend has a price list for the Volvo 850  line 
   and they come with 2.4l normally aspirated and 2.3l turbo charged 5 cylinder 
   engines (hence the 5 in 850).  I'm curious, does any one know if this is a new 
   engine? How many other manufacturers have I-5 engines?  Until now I thought Audi 
   was alone.


Yes, this engine came with the 800 series. They had to have a very
compact engine as it is transversely mounted. This angine is supposed
to be very good, very fuel economic, can't say that about the Audi 5
bangers unfortunately.

Anyway, it's a Volvo -> pretty boring in my opinion.
