The Cressida was fast because it had the 7M-GE engine which was also in the Supras and also had the 7M-GTE turbo version for even more yeeehas. Didn't you just love the sound/feel of the inline 6? I wish more automakers made them. Right now GM makes a really nice one, the 4.2 Vortec, but the only put it in the Trailblazer/Envoy. Why can't they just shove it in a Solstice? 291hp inline 6 in a car weighing that little, I'd be in line.

That is very true Adam, that 333hp screamer is one of my most favorite engines. I'll take the 6 speed manual though, SMG is for sissies.

Yeah I heard the 16v had an issue with the chain connecting the cams to each other. The belts alone can be a headache too! The eaks balance shaft seals are a MAJOR pain in the ass too!

1996 Audi A4 Quattro. Full Nuespeed suspension upgrade and 19"'s. Automatic tranny though. Stay away from Audi's their A/C and electrical systems are made of glass.
