I love to drive my buddies car which is F/I, but i wouldn't want to have to drive it all the time. I think that the car loses a little bit of its personality once it gets Turbo'ed. For me im gonna keep my car N/A, also b/c N/A is so much better with gas!

N/A isn't much better with gas.. Turbo is also good with gas, german N/A engine cars eat up gasoline like water.. You only save gas depending on how you drive the car and depending on what car you have.. I would say Honda N/A cars do best with gas saving if driven correctly.

That depends on what type of engine my car uses and how much it can really handle without damaging the car. I do want my car to run fast but I don't want to reduce the car's life because of the excess strain to the engine, suspension, and the body frame.

The more power you try to get out of a N/A car the more fuel you will use.

Why would you use a FI engine for a NA setup. Thats oxymoron.

Personal preference

The KA can run a lot of set ups just fine. It's not like I'm going all out and building a full track car with a stock motor. On top of that I don't want to deal with anything except a KA right now.

OMFG, the responses are priceless


[FYI, forced induction(FI) = turbo/supercharger; naturally aspirated (NA) = air is naturally taken in]
Go do some reasearch on Google or something, you'll learn something...

Well, in most applications, one wants the most response out of an engine. So if you want instant response, a naturally aspirated engine will do. And if you're a "purist" car enthusiast, even better for you.

But as a rally fan, I love forced induction. Just hearing the whine of a turbo and the constant popping of the anti-lag is part of the rally experience. (But turbos often suffer from "turbo lag)
Superchargers are different though, as they have instant response like a naturally aspirated engine, yet they have the sound (almost) and the power of a turbo. But even better, superchargers do not need a totaly overhaul of the plumbing, as a simply pulley kit can change the boost. Really, superchargers are probably the best for most racing applications.....



hahahaha thank you for explaining to people what NA/FI stands for and what it means hehe..

As you said the respones are priceless :D.

People should really specify what they are talking about or what they mean when creating a thread. Otherwise people respones could be offensive or dumb due to lack of information given.

Back to the topic.

I like both!

Owning a forced induction automobile, I go for FI but I also love naturally aspirated engines. Nothing beats the sound of my turbo whining on the evo 8 but nothing beats the sound of that terminator screaming past you.
