Given his cars/engiens, and knowledge, im sure his wisdom far outways yours

Obviously works for him. AS well as his other 2.0 turbo Astra which is doing mid 13s 1/4.

Or his Audi 20v Q turbo, or his 2.7 12v Turbo BMW.

you only have to look at his graph to see what I mean. he has power but he could get much more lower down with a smaller turbo

yeah you think other people know what they are doing also. a huge peak power is not everything. even if you go for just power in the band I recon his turbo is way too big

Well he's the one doing 12 secs 1/4s and ur the one doing 15"s. I'll trust his judgment better.

Theres always something wrong, turbos too big, wheels are too big, interiors bland etc etc etc.

Moan moan fucking moan, never say things good about peoples cars

again you show your a complete fucking tosser with no fucking idea about engines. I do 15s 1/4 because I have a 1372cc engine with a small turbo which provides 160ish hp. that car has a 2.0L engine with a huge and 600hp. yes it makes huge power but you only have to look at the graph to see it takes a fucking age to get up to peak torque. reduce the size of the turbo ( his 1.4 bar of boost is not high) and you'll get more boost further down the rev range which means more torque which means more power for his power band which means faster car.

Ok sweatpea, whatever you think mr geni arse!

I know how that engine, how turbos work, and the effects fo a larger turbo.

And no, there is no 600bhp 2.0litre? So please make yourself aware of the facts before replying like that There are two 350bhp lumps in the Nova.

I still await the day to when you actaully try to put me down and somethings actaully the truth
