LOL. I didn't think it necessary to spell the CO2 out for you as we were talking of POLLUTANTS. Now I know that in any future conversation with you I have to cater for the hard of thought pedant.

Last pre-cat car I owned was a 1990 Cavalier Sri - went like stink and you could grab it by the scruff of the neck and hurl it down a country lane or cruise all day at 120 (where conditions allow....)
Yup, the old pre-cat 8v did go - just remember the torque steer!! Indicated 128 was the most I screwed out of mine. (kph of course)
