But the point remains: a whole class worth of difference? I don't think so.
The ES car on the other hand may need revisiting. For what its worth, I have
seen MAYBE one letter with action requested on a 4cyl Fiero so the letter
writing campaign someone spoke of apparently never got off the ground.

I think Mr. Ryan would be much more happy with a 5 speed in his Fiero. I've
run against V6 Fieros that were pretty closely matched to the NA MR2. It
takes a VERY good driver to wring the best performance out of the Fiero,
The Fiero is a porker, no doubt....but so is the MR2. You want to compare
numbers? How about we call the Fiero what it really is....2800lbs,
Mr2? 2650, 145lb-ft. Which makes a bigger difference on the autox course?
