Get a EF and do a custom turbo jobbie.

Or an EB-ED and get a drive-in kit done from GRA or whoever.

86-88 commie <--- that is just plain stupid, why buy an OLD car.

look at the ef/el you have a car and in no rush, so hold out for the bargain :0)

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

EF definately. JMM reckon theyre the best engines, and i love the interior on them, even if it is only a GLi - plenty of potential.

For that kind of money you could get an EF Fairmont with change to do some mods. That's what I'd be doing.

You'd have to mention your priorities. Another worthy option would be a Telstar/626 V6 manual.
