What does that mean??? :???:
well hell when a 1.8T backfires they call it the big bang theory, when a 1.8T grabs traction with all 4 wheels it actually slows down the earth, if a 1.8T equipped car does laps on a circle track for too long a tornado will form.

the 1.8T is less an engine and more a god

Seems to be exactly how our engine is designed. Let's see a or any American car company can make the same HP out of a 4 cyl. motor.

saturns 2 liter eco-tec motor in the ion redline is putting out 205hp

Horespower comparison between new hemi and new 1.8T:

Dodge 5.7 liter V-8 - 345 hp 60.5hp per liter
Volkswagen 1.8 liter I-4 - 150 hp 83.3hp per liter


don't get me started on gas mileage.
60.5 hp per liter WITHOUT A TURBOCHARGER you goof.....

And 83.3 per is pretty said WITH a turbo....
