Turbo I4 vs NA V8 vs Supercharged V6

Who's the winner?


Turbo I4 if you're talking about freeway pulls. NA V8 for aural pleasure. Supercharged V6 for DD.

I just picked up the M3 a few days ago. It's a blast. The C32 AMG I'll be selling I imagine. I'm still rocking the Focus. Just picked it up from FSWerks a month or so ago and had the car gone through and given a clean bill of health. It's amazing how fast it is right now in the cool desert weather.

Hope you enjoy.










The M3 I plan to install test pipes asap and tune it soon as I can. Supercharging might be in the future, but it's pricey ~ 12K







Poor AMG, I've had her for two years and haven't done a proper photo shoot yet. It's got an SL55 intake, 181 pulley making around 19psi and a tune. It make about 410bhp with this setup. Fun car, but doesn't handle like the Bimmer.

This one is a hardtop convertible. Best of both worlds.

I bought the car out of state over the phone and had it shipped here, so they had to take the CA plates off and put their dealership paper plate on instead. I agree it looks silly.

I've been driving the focus lately.

Wow, nice cars. I bet the Focus is a rocket, with those HP/TQ numbers... probably faster than the BMW!
