Quick info on Spirit R/T's from Paul Bicknell (pab@security.mitre.org):  

Paul writes, "Just after I bought my '91 Spirit R/T in January 95 I decided to write a letter to Chrysler asking if they could provide me with any information about Spirit R/Ts. Well a really nice person from customer relations called me one day to tell me that they were sending some stuff out me. A few days later I got a brown envelope in the mail inside of which were 1) build stats on 91 Spirits 2) an exhaustive list of option codes and descriptions of things built into my car and 3) a photo-copy of the page out of the '91 Spirit showroom brochure that featured the R/T.

People on the net may find the build stats interesting, particularly with regards to turbos:

Total 1991 Spirit production: 93773
79707 ordinary Spirits, 6245 LE, 6613 ES and...
1208 R/Ts

1) 2.5L: 61654 Spirits, 1368 LE, 0 ES, 0 R/T
2) 3.0L V6: 18053 Spirits, 6245 LE, 5676 ES, 0 R/T
3) 2.5L Turbo: 0 Spirits, 172 LE, 937 ES, 0 R/T
4) 2.2L 16V Turbo: 0 Spirits, 0 LE, 0 ES, 1208 R/Ts

1) A413 3spd auto: 60668 Spirits (2.5L), 1367 LE (2.5L), 172 LE (2.5L Turbo), 619 ES (2.5L Turbo), 0 R/T
2) A604 4spd auto: 18053 (3.0L), 6245 LE (3.0L), 5676 ES (3.0L), 0 R/T
3) A523 5spd manl: 986 (2.5L), 1 LE (2.5L), 318 ES (2.5L Turbo), 0 R/T
4) A568 5spd manl: 0 Spirits, 0 LE, 0 ES, 1208 R/T

1) California: 5611 Spirits (2.5L), 884 Spirit (3.0L), 31 LE (2.5L), 18 LE (2.5 Turbo), 25 ES (2.5L turbo), 0 R/T (must have been clean enough already)
2) High Altitude: 1850 Spirits (2.5L), 270 Spirits (3.0L), 10 LE (2.5L), 119 LE (3.0L), 6 LE (2.5 Turbo), 32 ES (2.5L Turbo), 79 ES (3.0L), 32 R/T

Bottom line on Turbos: 2317 out of 93773 or 2.5% of total run. If you eliminate all 1208 R/Ts you are left with only 1109 or a little over 1%. No wonder Chrysler dropped the motor, it was really a specialty item that must have cost them a bundle."

Some do, some don't, I might

Cliff Sebring (PA) has one of the pre-production cars. 2) Of the Infinity Systems that I have seen, they are all Infinity 2 , I have yet to see Inifinty 1 in an RT 3) While the wheels are described diffently, they are the same wheel. Red cars were polished with red "background" while the white cars had solid white wheels. IMO, the wheels suck...
