Re:



 Hey Barry,
Just to help you lift the fog "hehehe" I have a 83GT turbo (they really
exist) BTW they don't have intercoolers
from the factory and remembering my plumbing nightmare the turbo wasn't
plumbed either.  Just thought  I'd
mention this cause The first time people see mine they think I "MADE IT"
then next statement is why not a 5.0?
Then I offer them a "ride" <EG>. Anyway I rambled long enough Just wanted
you to know we dont all have SVO's
but  this is the SVO list... I guess the wider the market we cover the
stronger a force we'll be in the aftermarket.
"MY 2 cents"
