    Default Would you rather have 2 turbo cars or one turbo and one NA

    Say you have 2 cars..ones already turbo while the other is a high revving NA 4cylinder..would you consider turboing it or would you leave it be...keep in mind that youd like to use the NA car for autocross daily driving etc...what would you do

    I'd rather have one of each just so i can experience a different driving experience from each car.

    High Output NA engines always scream real nice.... Nothing like the sound of those....

    I like how you didnt mention the Cars ,as if the Question wasnt referring to you!lol:tongue: ....I Say Keep it NA, so i can keep up with it in My MR2 .......Plus If its a Daily Driver, wouldnt you want to keep it as Reliable as Possible ......since you seen to have so many problems with the sw20 anyway?

    na all the way, would be nice to have one of each but why would you want two unreliable turbo cars? turbo cars are kinda unpractical for everyday drivers.

    It really depends on how much lag there is. A peaky NA motor with a narrow power band is just as bad as a turbo motor with excessive lag. For solo 2, the name of the game is instant torque and throttle response.
    Drag racing is for fast cars. Solo 2 is for fast drivers.

    Turbo cars are unreliable when tards buy a shitty turbo kit and think its a bolt on. There is no such thing as a bolt on turbo kit, and there never will be.
