    Predecessor to the 3000GT.

    Its sister car was the Chrysler Conquest.

    Yeah. . uhm. .
    the Japanese named it the Mitsubishi Stallion.
    but they couldn't pronounce it, so it was named Starion.

    I wish I was joking :rofl:

    Crappy cars.

    If you wanna get a mid 80s Jap sports car get something from Toyota/Mazda/Nissan. Mitsubishi quality during that period was pretty spotty.

    they are fun little cars if your a mechanic. pretty quick to and have lots of potential if you ditch the TBI system and make your own sheet metal intake manifold

    The MKI Super Celica (Supra for the idiots) was a sweet little ride. Id still pimp one today if i could find one that wasnt rusted out to shit.

    But the Starions styling was >>> *.* for its time. I <3 the fender flares.

    Nope. I'd say you did. The word is capitalized in the middle of your sentence AND it's spelled correctly. :rofl:

    hope you know how to work on cars...electronics in the car will drive you crazy, solid transmissions, 4-wheel abs, 4-wheel independant sus., 2.6 l turbo 4 with a td05 turbo stock, the original heads crack very easily,if you get the TSi conquest or the ESr(i htink) Starion you get 16x8 fronts and 16x9 out back. come with automatic climate control, and a fmic. just some random facts

    factory ~170 hp and 200+ lb-ft i believe @7psi, the stock turbo will go ~14psi. runs outta steam above ~5k. if have the thing fully balanced and remove the balance shafts you can spin it to around 7k

    aren't the 88s like the best year? and isn't the turbo one of the smallest turbos made for a production car?
