The title is pretty self explanatory. If there are any car fans here, this thread is here for you. Discuss anything car related here. It can be engineering related or just waffling on about your fav car.
I’ll set the ball rolling…
What is your fav engine aspiration?
Personally I’d go for a naturally aspirated engine mainly to eliminate turbo lag. I also seem to see NA engines as more ‘pure’ in a sense as TCs and SCs are kind of cheating, especially in supercars. Perfect case in point: The Bugatti Veyron; uses 4 turbos and only manages 253 mph yet the NA Mclaren F1 hits 243 MPH. The Veyron has 4 more turbos, 4 more cylinders and about 2 more liters oh and about 400 BHP more. And yet it only manages 10 mph more. Granted it has about 800-900kg more weight but that’s not the point.
