few minor notes to start,
teo's engine was assembled by S. Timmins, but it was tuned and set-up by Peter Dawe, IMO theres a biggggggg differance there.

secondly, there is defiently something to be said about N/A throttle response, and sound. not everyone want to hear blow off valves whistling and wastegates dumping. The other question really is, how fast do you need to go, is 385hp in 2600lbs not enough? I've heard the you can never have to much arguement, but that seems like an ego problem not a real response.

550(est)-385 does not equal 225, and if you think that engine will even be compareable to teo's throttle response, and true F-6 song under full throttle (@7600rpm) then your more of a turbo guy then a porsche guy.


the problem with that 930 vs 911 statment is that most often, all other things are not equal. the 911 often weighs in much lighter, and usually has more gears.


We need to get excellence to compare 4 cars; stock 3L (or less), stock 930, modded 930, and one of the 3.6 transplants.
