They made turbo'd V6'ers. Those actually had some guts to them, they're rare though.

Those never made it to production. There was talk about Shelby doing forced induction on the 3 liter v6, but that never happened as it was a mitsubishi powerplant. Though it DID get forced induction on the 3000GT models, and in DOHC form to boot.

The 2 best powerplants for Chrysler 4 cylinders were the Turbo 2 (beefier bottom end than the Turbo 1 and was intercooled) and the Turbo 1 2.5 (which with the 5 speed made 210 lbs. of torque). The second one I had in my LeBaron GTC and it was a screamer...managed to get that thing to 12lbs. of boost with the small Mitsubishi turbo on it

I started off with an 85 Dodge Charger, then an 83 400, then a Neon, then my 2 LeBarons (1 was turbo and the other was the 3 liter V6). Yup, all were crapily built, but (and these were very important reasons for a young'n)...1) No matter which junkyard you go to, you will find the part you are looking for. PERIOD. 2) Insurance is hella cheap and 3) Very easy to mod with factory performance parts in junkyards. Hell, you could take an old Omni and shove almost all the performance parts from a Shelby Daytona into it and make a killer hot hatch!

Yeah I had a fully loaded if yor could call it that.....1978 Chrysler Lebaron with the 318 5.2 liter V8 and chyslers answer to saving gas at the time. It was called "Lean Burn" which was a huge solid state computer that sat right up top the engine on the ahir cleaner. What a nightmare that system was......

But the 318 itself was bullet proof. Drove 40 miles with no oils pressure knocking and all. had a new oil pump put in and the engine still worked.

Speaking of Chryslers... my dad had a 78 Cordoba with the 360 4 barrel. He told me that he had a leaky water pump on it, and drove it like that until all the coolant was gone. The engine would lock up, he would sit about 10 minutes, fire it back up and be on his way. I was astonished.

All Chrysler carbed motors had that...right up until they HAD to go to fuel injection to compete with Ford and GM. 88 was the first year that ALL 4 cylinders got FI, and V8'* I think 90 or 91. My Charger was a PITA with that system, I could NEVER get the timing right on it
