But, to give it some credit, it IS an extremely well built engine.
Yes but somewhat of a disappointment considering the 3.4 DOHC LQ1 they put in w-bodies put down the same amount of power with .1L less displacement, and it was made in 1992 to boot.
All this makes you wonder what kind of performance there is to be had with this engine. I would imagine the potential is pretty great. I woudl start with a tune, if the PCM can be tuned. Shoot me a PM and I might be able to get you in contact with an LX5 expert (IIRC that was the engine code for the 3.5L DOHC Shortstar).
