626 turbo

i have a '90 model 626 turbo which has the same motor and running gear as a 1st gen mx6. Are you aware that the '87 model has the 2L single port SOHC motor. Which i don't believe is a very good motor at all, but if you want like the shape then go for it!

You could buy my mothers TX5..... just need to find out what is wrong with the gearbox. I will do that in a couple of weeks though. Could be nothing.

Pics in the for sale thread.

I imagine 87 would be the older shape single cammer. Not a really flash peice of equipment, but if you like them I dont see why not. Still able to get them going quickly pretty easy.

At the same time, dont knock back an 87 onwards tx5 or I think its 90?? the same shape 626 came out.

This is the model I mean anyway. Thats my effort. Obviously a little different paint scheme.

Its a good motor :) least in my eyes..for its age they still go hard :) take a good thrashing and still go strong.

Yup, all thats needed to fit the later model F Series engines is the torque stoper mount on the drivers side :) Plus being lighter then the later model GD's they already have a leg up...pitty they wernt a little more stylish :)

yer they are a good motor for what they are, (only test drove a Few) but if he was expecting the performace of the F2T i don't think the 2L would compare unless modified.

But good point about swapping the FE3T, would make a really mean sleeper :D
