hey guys what would you do?
i've been offered to swap my 1991 VP Calais V8 for a VL wagon factory turbo with a 5 speed
i dont even have a clue what the VL turbo wagon would be worth.

I would swap my turbo for an 8 if i owned one, but i wouldn't trade my 8 for a turbo.

They're rare, but they're still slow in stock form. A VL Turbo only gets up and goes once you spend the money on it :)

Kinda like anything with a 2JZ. Good engine, but slow without more boost :)

I'd keep the V8. And it's a Calais.

Who's to say the wagon is factory with turbo? Could just be a conversion....
