I've got an 83 turbo and when I start this car up on a cold morning it gives a sustained higher pitched sqeal until it gets a little warmed up. It also pukes smoke and detonates when I get to about 4 grand - performance is sometimes real peaky- I never get much noise out of the car other times. There are 209,567 miles on the car. By the way a 96 Corolla gave me a real hard time last week. This car runs pretty well other then the crappy accel. It's been well maintained.
