whats better? FI or NA?
 
ok, me and soldomatic were talkin...and hes saying any forced induction makes the car unreliable (true), but NA doesnt? what do u think?

i think on a motor with a properly set up turbo, fuel system, and motor will be as reliable as a built NA motor. while NA is high compression etc, wouldnt that be the same?

Jon, car is like an essay, more words you have more likely you will have more mistakes.

what sick finga said

You can make a fi as reliable as an na but the na is still alot simpler

500 hp I4 Turbo civic or 500 hp V12 Lambo? THAT is the question. :P

I'd like to rephrase that...

....500HP I6 Turbo E36 M3 or 500hp V12 Lambo, now that's my question. :P

exactly...julian, you cant compare a civic, even if its 500hp turbo to a lamborghini..thats like me trying to argue that my dads malibu is better than a 325i

Haha, that's true,

But as crazy as I sound, I'd still take the E36 M3 Turbo over any Lamborghini, Zonda :P

Okay, put me in a straight jacket now, I know I deserve it *drink*

It's called technology :)


FI can be just as reliable as an NA, only issue is the turbos going out after a long while, but it doesn't kill the engine....

Edit: Let me provide this example..
Supra NA: 180k miles and runs great
Supra TT: 180k miles and runs great, with the turboes replaced at 120k :)
