Default my '89 Lebaron GTS Intercooled Turbo II 5-speed

this is my '89 Lebaron GTS Turbo. it'* 1 of 268 made with the 2.2L Intercooled Turbo II/5-speed (the other 600 something '89 GTS made that year only recieved the non-intercooled 2.5L Turbo I/automatic). it'* loaded with factory ASC power moonroof and leather interior. it'* rust & dent free and has been very well taken care of. right now it has 231,000 miles and runs GREAT! i took these pics last January back when it had ugly 215/65 tires and the cracked up windsheild. i just bought some 205/60-15 Kumho Ecsta HP4 tires (not even mounted yet) and replaced the windshield last week. i dyno'd the car in Ft.Collins CO last month and it put down 178whp & 217wtq @ 14psi running off the scale pig rich.

btw i took these pics about 10 miles north of Douglas Wyoming. you can see the Rocky Mountains in the background:









the almighty SOHC 8 valve 2.2L Intercooled Turbo II:





FULL BOOST

it'* called Dark Cherry Metallic; almost exactly like the color of the DCM '94-'96 Impala SS. the car is stock besides 2psi over stock via an M&M Racing grainger valve MBC, and a 2.5" mandrel bent JRB exhaust from turbine to tailpipe, no cat, and an Ultraflo muffler. i've never had it at the strip but i would guess it'* a high 14 second car.

and....it'* for sale and can be delivered! i just spent $700 on it last week (new tires, new windshield, & new front rotors and pads). i have about $2300 in the car including the purchase price. it has a TON of new parts.

You know, Josh.. If I had money for that car, I'd buy it. But seeing as how my license is being revoked in June and I have no room for another car.. [grumbles]

Life is unfair.
