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?

Haha, that's true,

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

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

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
