[DML] Re: Turbocharger availability

Joe - I'll give you this. If money were no object, I'd go with a Stage
II engine just for the mere convenience. For me, the cost of the
engine is a lot, and I want more "bang for my buck". I'm not
necessarily saying the engine or turbo kits are overpriced. If that's
want it cost to develop, produce and make a reasonable profit, then
those are the costs. For me, it's just not worth what you get. I love
the car enough that I'm willing to accept and live with it's short
comings in the performance dept.
