Subject: Re: Buying a 9000

I wouldn't own an auto on principle, however, the engine can give VERY GOOD low down power if you take it to Abbott Motorsport and have the chip replaced, and/or the airbox/exhaust system enlarged to bring the turbo on at lower revs. Works fine on my 9000T16 1986 (manual, Oz model). Abbott are in the UK, and race the 9000 in your Group N Saloon Championship. Check out their Web page ( - I think) "Henry G. Grilk" wrote: > Stay away from the automatic.
