    The 2.2 and the 2.5 turbo engines are very similar. Same issues apply to both, however the 86-88 2.2L Turbo engines had really crappy lightweight rods which made matters worse for the longevity of the engine. Also, the 84-87 had a really inefficient intake design which hampered performance greatly.

    Personally, if I was going to have a turbo Chrysler from the era, I'd prefer the 2.5L Turbo which is what my 1989 Voyager minivan has. Completely unmodified and so forth. It's not fast, but it's very neat. But, alas, I'm selling that off as well. Not practical enough for my needs and I would feel badly about trashing something that's actually pretty rare and in decent shape yet.

    Speaking of your fleet, what ever happened with the Shadow?

    The guy who bought it from me originally saw it after I fixed some stuff and offered to pay me for the repairs and took the car back down to St. Louis. Guess he wasn't ready to give it up yet.
