    Just out of curiosity, how many miles are on her? As far as problems, it's basically hit or miss. It all depends on how the previous owner(s) drove her and what sort of mx they performed... What sort of intake/exhaust set up do you have? For relatively cheap you can upgrade both. May not add a ton of HP but it will breath and sound better. Plus, it makes mashing the throttle that much more fun.

    2 1/2" will be optimum for it and shouldn't cost more. Edelbrock makes an awesome intake for the TBI system too!

    212K really isn't all that bad for a 1990. And, that's one of the best ways to drive anything really, like an old lady. Someone told me once to drive like there is an egg between your foot and the gas pedal. That's how I do it most of the time, but not all
