Throw a B5 RS4 in there and a RS2, I have a feeling these new kids would have some issues with turbo power

At the same time that has always been the case that forced induction will always beat out natural aspiration. It's extremely expensive and very difficult to get large numbers out of a naturally aspirated motor....take a look at the MK4/MK5 R32s.

He's done a comparison between the B5-8 in one of his web shows. He prefers the turbo car hands down because it's easy to drive fast.

Honestly I love NA but when the motor revs high and is in a light car. Not a fat pig of a car which is torque challenged like the 4.2 RS motor.
