I have an 89 2.6 and can't imagine this car getting around with a 2.3 engine. There is just adequate power with the 2.6.

2.6/// if you are just doing city driving i would say a 2.3 would be adequate..

we just found a 2.6 for our son.... i would say it is fairly nimble.... 25 mpg on the highway....

plus... we have had several 103 engines and like them a lot
