The Sy's didn't sell well at all. With an MSRP of $25,XXX, a lot sat on dealer lots. I finally bought mine in early '92 for $18,900 and a few weeks later new ones were discounted down to $16,900, almost $9k off sticker. I've had two and they are a blast.

Downfall of the Syclone and Typhoon was reliability. The engine did not have the same robust internals/block the 3.8 platform the GN was based from. No cross bolted mains, etc...

Push the boost and survivability suffered greatly.

Personally I would take a GN over a SY/TY.

You are saying that just a chip is going to give that truck roughly 130+ extra horsepower. (considering 10hp per tenth or 1mph)

No way in hell...not ever.
I agree you will not get that much extra power, but remember just by it being turbo a chip will up the hp/trq more than a tune on na motor b/c it ups the boost, look at the audi s4, evo x, sti, bmw 335-these cars are getting 60-100hp on tune/chip alone, it would be an interesting race
