Re: 87 Turbo Coupe

Think I would get the quarter fixed and get the tune.

Looks like a great car other then that.

I think it would do 150 or more since the .030 bore on the block and new pistons and the rebuild on the turbo. The interior is amazing.

When he picked it up new at the port of Charleston S.C. from the Ford Distribution terminal, he filled it up with gas and drove all the way to Indianapolis (750 miles) on 1 tank of gas cruising at 75-80 most of the way.

I love my Dad, but when I say it needs to be tuned, turbo guys know what I mean, my Dad says" it has new plugs and the timing is set, the computer does the rest." it makes me a little nuts.

He must have sold it. I haven't talked to him today yet.
