Interesting, thanks for the info!Personally, I would rather have the power instantly when I step on the gas instead of having to wait for a turbo to spool. Aside from the whole power delivery and performance aspect, turbo charged engines by nature are considerably less reliable than their N/A counter parts.
The advantage of a turbo is that you can effectively make more power with a smaller engine (by stuffing more air into it).. If you could make the same power, with the same engine (and similar fuel economy), without any of the drawbacks of forced induction.. well that would be great. There would be no reason for anyone to run a turbo, and the world would a wonderful place. But with the laws of physics being as they are, we have to settle with what we can get.
