one difference is that turbo charges are more fuel effiecient and better for the eviroment (like in the SAAB ecotec engine). However supercharges are better for going faster i think.

Why? This is'nt an english paper. Its obviously not written by me, nor do I claim it to be. But if it makes you happy. CarEXPERT and to anyone whom it concerns, the post #43 is not written by me. The first part of the post, in unchanged form, was taken from www.autospeed.com

You happy yet? Or should I give the editor-in-chief a call and let him know I copied his article to help a confused person interested in cars? Oh and thats not a rhetorical question I'm DYING to know your answer...

It doesn't hurt to acknowledge a source, if only for the courtesy. I know you have more nerve than mouthful of bad teeth, but don't you feel a whole lot better now you got that off your chest?

Sure whatever you say. It was so blatently obvious that I did'nt create the information that I figured everyone would atuomaticly know it was from another source. But I guess not since "somone" wanted to get picky about it... Don't know who that could have been, but the problem has allready been cleared up...

Considering what happened with vwhobo, I'm surprised you didn't just post the link in the first place. People on this forum are picky.

Only when it comes to certain people.

DSMer, that post was hard to understand. When the engine is at idle, why does it say that the ratio have to be rich, shouldnt it be lean at idle cuz the RPMs are low?
On that artical what does engine load mean? engine work, RPM?

DSMER, I forgot to ask you about the 4g63,T engines. Why are the power diffrent and sometimes drivetrain diffrent in the 4g63T, like in the GSX the power is lower than the Evo 8 and dont they use the same engine? Is the Galant JDM?

Right, and since when does ChrisV have copyrights to words or phrases? Hey bet I know one that definetly has to be yours becuase when I look it up in the dictionary it has your picture next to it. Goes something like "dipshit", yeah I think thats the one....
