I dunno fela's, lighter eg handling better, ok I can handle that. Quick easy increase in power, yea sorta. better fuel econ? when you start working the turbo it sorta just chucks fuel in the general direction & then it's as bad or worse than a V8. Have to fit a turbo timer to idle down ( or do manually) or big expenses later on. 96% increase in power, without doing other mods to hold it together (more dollars), expensive when it chucks a curly. Then of course you have the oh gosh I gotta change gears again to keep the revs up where the poke is & pulling loads eg towing, back to throwing fuel at it & more gear changes, all this just so you can go like a v8. Plus do the same mods to a v8 & hey I don't have to tell you blokes everything do I.
BTW. They do go like the proverbial clappers & it is nice hearing the turbo screaming its t*ts off. But there aint NOTHIN like the rummble from an 8.
