I believe one of My older cars does have a T-C, it must be hidden in that black metal vacuum booster something can(looks like a tomato juice can) with hose/coupled and mounted rigid. Stays very warm at times.....

If you can afford it, it's worth it. Much like if you can afford to modify your existing vehicle and you plan to keep it for five years or so, you can always get more mileage out of it than what's standard and expected. I did it when I was a kid with my parents cars, I can do more today than back then.

Most of mine did and I'd make certain to have one installed if it didn't have one already or I'd install one myself. The more power and fuel economy the better in my book as well as higher available speeds.

Happy Easter everyone.
