And we think turbos are expensive now
Actually, take a look at this article http://220.127.116.11/automag/featu...1-113-9-86.pdf
which explains the VNT tech plus electric WG actuator and also the two stage turbo (e-turbo).
I don't know much about the Porsche engines except for an article that I've got from a recent Euro Car Mag on rebuilding one. That one however, looks like an oldschool VW motor with two additional cylinders. Anybody got a pick of the new motor?
