I am looking to buy a C70 convertible and would like some opinions about the perfromance of the LPT as compared to the T5 engine in my other 70-series cars. It seems like most of the low mileage cars for sale recently have the LPT engine.
Well I don't know how it compares to the t5 in other models, but if I had to do it again I would hold out for the hpt. I had the lpt in mine and I drove one of the hpt verts when mine got rearended and I thought they were going to total it. It was a huge difference. I test drove a t5 s60 too and that was much quicker also.
