    1981 262C with an '89 B230FT. The car died at 70 mph on the freeway the other day. Fuse #12 was blown. I replaced the fuse, tried to start the car and it blew again immediately. I had this exact same problem some time ago and I thought it was sorted out. The manual says fuse #12 is for back...

    I've got a bone stock '81 262C with a B28F V6. Someday it will probably get a 4-cylinder turbo but I was thinking of upgrading some suspension stuff soon. What I was wondering is since it is a V6 are the springs or anything else different than a 240? Any reason not to get Bilstein HD...
