I was shocked to see one of my co workers driving one of these and for some reason he wants to sell it because no one will work on his car. I have pics so when im not lazy i will post them

NO, not all STE'* are Turbo'*. The only year STE'* were Turbos was in 1990, and even in 1990 about 7,000 or so STE'* were made and only 1000 of those were Turbo'*. I think they made the STE up through the 92 Model year. Chances are its not a Turbo. Since nobody will work on it, I'm betting its a '91 or '92 with the 3.4 DOHC engine. Nobody wants to touch those.
