Anybody packing a turbo in their Sprint? Mine is an early 87 (12/86) model, Turbo 5 speed.
Even with the turbo it gets better gas mileage than my 89 Plymouth K-car, and preforms better with a 1 liter and 5 speed than the 2.5/auto in the K-car.
The only draw back to the Sprint over the K-car is that I can't bring home the groceries and the kids home at the same time.
From what I know the Turbo versions were produced in 87, 88, 90, and 91. The Turbo added 30 horse power, and almost a 50% increase in power output. My Sprint, having over 200,000 mile, still gets 30 to 35 mpg. The Turbo Sprint got a top mounted intercooler, the 90/91 model getting a factory hood scoop. The 87/88 intercooler had a blow off valve, while the 90/91 did not. The 87/88 got a 4 pinion differential. this is just some of the features of the turbo Sprints, Swifts and Canadian Firefly.
