Once some owners start taking them down the pod, then real data will be there.. as if it isn't already!
I didn't say 'far more power' 20bhp though isn't to be sniffed at, I'm sure that was on evolves dyno.
Yes i know the original question was mapped v's standard, but standard versus standard was mentioned, and as i said (from experience) the M135 is faster.
The only things the d doesn't have the i has is.. revs and noise. (less tuning potential)
Standard for standard there's nothing in them pace wise.
People use the POD as reference but depending how the track is prepared and what the conditions are, santa pod brings the biggest swing in times.
The d doesn't have the character, feel, fun or amusement of the I. After driving the d they are classes apart.
The I is faster prior tuning and afterwards too.
We go over the same stuff every month here.
