Good luck. > > Ken Washington > 87 9000S Hello! Rick here, in Cold Lake, Alberta, Canada. I drive a 1987 9000 turbo. Looooove my car, bought it brand new in europe in '87. I put slick-50 in the engine at approximately 45,000 K's. I now have 212,000 K's on it ( about 130,000 miles for you americans) and my engine has not appeared to have suffered any ill effects from it, maybe I just got lucky...
