Samuel I have an 83 auto turbo. I drive it every day in bumper to bumper traffic. The worst thing about this car is how long it takes to get moving from a standstill. On the move, acceleration is great. I get the feeling that this is really a freeway car. The 16 valve engine was much more powerful, and the 88 model has the benefit of 5 years more development. In addition, if you don't mind changing gears, I think the 5 speed would be a much more pleasing car. -- Michael Rochfort To reply remove "nospam" from email address Samuel Hagan <shagannopsamst.net> wrote in message news:NAqr4.309$aK.15751nopsam.uswest.net... > i have to decide between a 1983 900 turbo automatic and a 1988 900 5spd, the > 83 is only an 8 valve engine and the 88 is 16valves, which would be fasters? > please help me decide > thanks > sam > > >
