This car has the Mopar Performance Stage II computer installed. I shifted at about 3500 RPM to keep the speed down. There are a lot of police in the area. This car just wants way more than I gave it. It's one angry little 4-cylinder that's for sure. I don't get to drive it often, but when I do it amazes me every time! With usual driving habits, I saw about 24 to 28 MPG using the trip odometer, for what it's worth.
This car has a little over 51,000 actual and documented miles at the time of this video upload. The turbo is very strong, does not blow any blue smoke or burn oil. The original computer comes with the sale of the car, and still works as it should. However, Boost with the stock computer is limited to 12 psi by design.
1978 Dodge Omni vs VW Rabbit Golf & Toyota & Datsun Chi Chi Rodrigeuz
This Dodge Promo film was made in the Fall of 1977 for the January 1978 Introduction of the Dodge Omni. Chrysler Corporation introduced it's first world car'. This car was in production from Fall of 77 till Spring of 89. They were sold as Dodge Omni, Plymouth Horizon, Chrysler Horizon in the UK and the Simca Talbot Horizon in France. 165,000 cars were sold in the USA in it's first year of production. The US version used a VW engine block with Chrysler Parts attached which is kind of ironic considering that they are comparing the car to the VW Rabbit (Golf) in this film. Chi Chi Rodriguez does the intro for this film. Wink Martindale does the voice over for this. These films were produced by the Roy Ross Advertising agency for Chrysler. They were filmed in Palm Springs. Apologies for the bad sound quality after about 3 minutes, it's a film that's over 30 years old.
1983 Dodge Shelby Charger / May 2013 update
video 2: Since purchasing this 1983 1/2 Dodge Shelby Charger in August 2012, a number of engine updates by turboMopar's 'R/T' and 'BIGBRUDDA" have resulted in a nicely running Shelby Dodge machine. Here is a short video with a few throttle blips to show off the new Exhaust and smooth-running carbed 2.2 liter 4-banger.

1987 Dodge Charger 2.2L Short Drive
Took my incredibly slow and utterly bulletproof little shitbox for a short spin.... and even managed to get a chirp out of the tires! There is nothing at all special about this little car, except that they're pretty rare around here, and it's one of only two 2.2 Chargers I am aware of in the province that are on the road, and aren't Shelby GLHS models.
