Some Colt info and notes from Boris:

For the Colt 100 E, Chrysler decided to continue the production of the C10 until 1992, 1989+ C10 model are call Colt 100 E(Economic model) or Eagle Vista (TBI model), Eagle Vista GT (1.5l MFI 8valve/12 valve) and Vista GT Turbo (1.6l turbo single cam) And the C50 model is called Colt 200 E(economic) 200 GT(with spoilers and better interior) and GT Turbo(1989 only) the 1.6l twin cam non turbo was made in 1989 and 1990 in canada. Eagle Summit was another name for the C50 The advantage of the 1991-1992 C10 in Canada was that we had the 1.5l 12 valve engine. Well, I know that the shape of my car is not a big deal, but I had the car almost for free, so I decided to tune it up! I've always played with original engine instead of swaping engine (It's a fast way to get power).

But I find it more challenging tuning a small engine, before I had a 1988 Golf GTI with about 180 hp normally aspirated. The thing that blocked me on the 1.5l 12 valve was that there is no performance camshaft for the engine, so entering more air in the engine was difficult, possibillity was to get bigger valve (this can't be done on the 12 valve, the head would become too fragile), porting (that's what I've done) or turbocharging(i've tried it, but the engine wasn't able to support boost I wanted to have). Well 140 hp is not very high but people are impressed of the power for a small car, many people laught about it, but as soon as the light turns green, you can see the impression in their face (mostly civic guys). I've putted Colt turbo coil spring and stabiliser bar because they're stiffer, rack-n-pinion (quicker) and Colt turbo vented front disk brake (the stock on mine were solid disk... They heated 2 times so I use vented and drilled (I've drilled them myselft) disk and now I have no trouble braking.
