Are You Turbocharged or Naturally-Aspirated?

2y ago

Does a lack of power below a certain RPM bother you?

  • A lack of power makes me cry.
  • No way! I want it to come suddenly and scare my passengers!
  • I don't really care as long as there's power...

Do you like the sound of a good old blow-off or 'dump' valve?

  • I make that bad boy hiss like a snake!
  • Dump valve, you say? I'm in.
  • Surely they're just for children?

Can there be a replacement for displacement?

  • Displacement is power!
  • I only need 2 litres and 4 cylinders to beat you...
  • Replacement? I don't acknowledge anything under 5 litres...
  • Yes, yes there can.
  • No bloody way...

Do you care about fuel consumption?

  • I don't care as long as there's power...
  • Fuel consumption - what's that?
  • I want to save every last drop of the sacred stuff!
  • Power always drinks fuel, though.

Finally, do you know what this is?

  • A curious looking snail?
  • A compressor housing.
  • The casing of a world of laggy disappointment.
  • An intake pipe.

  • I prefer naturally aspirated for a daily driver over the complexity of a turbo.

    If I had to pick a boosted system, it would be a supercharged one. No lag and, depending on the system, there's the subtle whine of a supercharger.

  • They might cause the exhaust sound to be muffled but other than that turbo's are superb fun.
