my friend had one and you can move the engine slightly in the bay and do it but run the risk of damaging the hydraulics and will usually leak.

Anyway,ive always liked them.Pretty ugly but thats what makes them kinda appealing.

Think for a year they done a 16v turbo,then changed that in 96 to a 20v turbo,which had the Brembo 4 pots as standard.

FWD. Very quick and easily tunable. Very cheap for what they are.
