Really. So a 220kW 5.7l Gen3 has less "brains" than a 220kW 5.0l Windsor V8 or a 215i HSV 308. A 220kW 5.0l Merc S500 motor has less "brains" than a 300hp Mustang 289 Windsor. Of course the king of the lot would have to b a 100hp 1.0L bike motor. Hell we got some 1.8L cars pushing only 100hp, if we were smart, we'll replace them with bike engines.
kW per L doesn't indicate SFA. What about power, torque, throttle response, power delivery, weight, size, fuel economy, NVH?
How can you compare those two cars ? Its like comparing a Ford Cougar to a GTR Skyline ??
So, which car is the Cougar and which is the GTR?
And a word of advice - just because you beat a car off the lights doesn't mean your car is faster - only gauge of that would be if you drove the 2 cars yourself with identical conditions on the day.
Ok, so I'm asking which YOU think is faster?
I once beat a Skyline GTR off the lights once- the other driver missed 2nd gear (the twat). I was in a vr v8. I think not!
I once beat an Integra TypeR. The other driver didn't miss any gears. What should I think?
Hell even I don't all hondas, but you do have to take a step back and congradulate their engineering teams for what they have created.
Only a brilliant engineer can make a 9000rpm donk. Kudos on doing it.
Only a stupid enginner uses an overly complex, gimmicky and expensive design to achieve something achieveable with a far simpler and cheaper (SR20DET shouldn't b too hard to fit in an S2k) design.
And only a stupid consumer would pay extra for an overly complex and gimmicky product which achieves the same result as its cheaper competition.
Engine design teams should design engines that work. If ur new design is no better, just more complex than ur old 1, WTF have u been doing?
