Is this true?
I honestly dont know what to believe.
Like I said, if Corky Bell says that they arent needed, I have a hard time NOT believing him. There is NO ONE on nasioc that knows as much as he does on the subject of turbocharging.
But I also, have a hard time 100% believing it, because it goes against everything I have ever thought about it.
