Anyone remember the Dodge Charger GLH?
Dodge Omni GLH. Great sleeper! 6.6 0-60mph and [email protected] 93mph in a friggin Omni. Don't forget the 92-93 Olds Touring Sedan. Slow as molases in January but the best interior around. Then again the one I drove had a SES light. So, probably some drivability issues.

I think I've got all the turboed MOPARs here, fill in any that I missed.
Turbo MOPAR list:
LeBaron GTC
Omni GLH-T and GLH-*(regular GLH was non-turbo HO engine)
Charger R/T
Talon
Shelby Daytona IROC
Duster/Shadow ES
Spirit R/T
Caravan
New Yorker
Imperial(I think)
Also, the new SRT-4 and GT Cruiser, but those aren't considered true "Turbo Dodges" by 80s/90s turbo Dodge enthusiasts.

L67 was and option in the Olds 98 touring Sedan in 1992, and later was an option in the olds 98 regency elite versions up until 1995.

1995 was the first year the olds eighty eight had the supercharged package (Lss option)

not sure if anyone mentioned the turbo'd bonnies...late 80'* forget what year.... (I think 200 or so were made)

That was the GLH-*, the Shelby version of the GLH. The GLH-T ran in the mid 15s, and the regular GLH(non-turbo) was in the high 15s.

There'* sopme of those damn turboDodges running in the 9s! Heavily modded, yes, but that'* faster than any other streetable I4 out there.

Yes, it was an 89' SSE. The article is floating around here somewheres.

Turboed:

Pontiac Grand Prix SE (1989-1990)
Pontiac Grand Prix STE (1990)
Pontiac Grand Am (1988 & possibly other years)
Pontiac Sunbird (1990ish)
Pontiac Trans Am (1989)

There are plenty more factory turbo'ed cars out there, but I figured I'd take care of some of the Pontiacs.

Also, there was NEVER a factory Supercharged GP GT as was previously posted. It was never made. Now, in '97-98 the GTP was a package that was added on to the GT, so insurance still listed it as a GT and insurance is cheaper, but they were all clearly badged GTP, its not like it said GT on it and had a blower.

Also, I'm suprised nobody has mentioned the RX-7 yet. And also, all Saabs since the late 80'* have been available with a Turbo IIRC. A lot of volvo'* have them as well.

Not entirely sure, but I've seen one at a TurboDodge meet down at Edgewater Raceway near Cincinnatti. No, it wasn't a motor swap.

I just looked in my car ecyclopedia. The New Yorker had the 146 hp I4 Turbo in 1988 only. It weighed in at 2814lbs. Pretty wimpy even as light as it is.
