Re: Diff between 88 and 88.5
Jim, the others have given good info. Mine is an 88.5. As oldzuki said, the easiest way is the round dash vents in the 88 and square in the 88.5. Also, the 88.5 has a four spoke steering wheel. Mine has the small flanges on driveshaft, so after reading other posts, mine isn't the only one with them.
The engine size is on the driver side of the engine.I had to go out to the garage and look at my new motor on this one.
I got a vehicle spec sheet off of the Zukiworld online website that has a list of the spec history re Sami's. And, the 85-89 carb models were 1324cc, and the injected 90 up models had 1298cc.

Way too much horsepower is barely enough!
