I drove both and took the v8.
I felt the turbo had stacks of power and was fun to drive when pushed, however i felt that it suffered in comparison to the v8 in the day to day grind.
Simply sound, with the turbo u get stuff all exhaust pleasure until u nail it, with the v8 (+ perf exhaust) u have the awesome v8 burble all the time.
I thought if I got the turbo I would be driving flatout everywhere to get my fix!
