i just bought a 89 probe gt the car came with i/h/e, ecu chip and boost controler. the car cost $1500. the car feels faster than my 1988 5.0 mustang. are probes good cars or what?

They can be. I would want the turbocharged model (cant think of the name). Plus theres a ton of engine swaps for em. My friend almost bought one, theres lots of bodykits and conversions for them too.

Depends, whats under the hood? Looks pretty good, the hydrolics might be a little too gaudy for me though.

Right....actually they are very good cars. Fast too, even if you get the N/A 4cyl. model.

Cool_guy. i used to own a '89 probe gt. if its the 2.2L turbo it has a lot more potential then u think. If u want a really good engine upgrade look into the JDM spec. mazda 323 GTR 1.8L turbo engine. 210 hp, 200 ft/lbs of tourque. its a really affordable engine and the performance mods for that engine r endless. It probably is faster then ur old 5.0L, i remember beating many with mine, and it was miled out. peace

I'm not much of a Ford guy but a friend of mine said he had one with a turbo and a aftermarket exhuast and it was pretty quick. Research the car car and then you can go from there.
