3/S Platform Questions

Anyone that's had a personal experience with these cars please chime in. I have a couple little questions about these cars that I'd like to find out before I go out and pay for one. I'm sitting in front of a $7k check here, and it's burning a hole in my pocket already.

1) Is there much of a chance that I can buy a decent VR-4 or R/T Twin Turbo with my $7,000?

2) Why are the Stealth R/T Twin Turbos generally listed cheaper than their twins, the VR-4's?

3) Do these cars have many problems? What are the problems (if any)?

1) An earily year, sure. Just try to get the latest year you can afford.

2) Name plate, better styling, and the 3KGT VR-4 had more options.

3) Rod bearing failure. Transmission problems.

With the 3Si guys doing a group buy on transfer case upgrades, I think some of the transmission problems might finally be solved for AWD models.

I've heard of these engines spinning their bearings, but mostly in the first generation (1991-1993). I'm hoping I can luck out and buy a '94 or '95 model. I think they have the best styling anyways.
