Sad.

Watch in a few years time, the aftermarket will be providing "NA kits" for cars, removing all turbo-related parts allowing you to experience the pleasure of a naturally aspirated engine.

turbo > non-turbo

i will take the adrenaline rush of BOOST in trade for a bit of turbo lag. No N/A engine can provide the thrill of boost! TURBO FOREVER!

Well, you can't deny the nice rush a FI provides + the spooling/whining noise. However, I can't also deny the purity and rawness of an NA provides.

not trolling. there's nothing to be ashamed about with loving Turbo. hell, BMW brought Turbo technology to production cars. The last 'non-turbo' car i owned was when i was 16 (1st generation SE-R)----since then i've had all turbos and have enjoyed all of them.

N/A is great, but doesn't give you the adrenaline rush Turbo does, IMO!

Ferrari will do it correctly. They will use a flat plane crank along with forced induction. This will allow them to get high revs with their switch over to FI.

Flat plane crank is what allows the MP4-12c to rev to 8,500.

Otherwise I much prefer NA. I would take GT3 over Turbo, Boss 302 over GT500, Z06 over ZR1, etc... Now if BMW would just offer a NA track focused M4.

What sells me on NA every time is power delivery. My cars see the track many times a year, so I much prefer the predictable power of NA. Also NA reliability, 80-90% of track days are in the hot portion of the year. FI is great for street cars no question.

I don't really care what they are planning, they achieved perfection with the 458 as far as I'm concerned. I only hope I'll be able to afford one before they become super rare collector's pieces.

Exactly, I don't get why we are complaining about that. FI isn't something of the future. It's older than you think....

F40 is in my book more or less THE greatest supercar ever.




And when I watched this my number 1 greatest car ever (Macca F1) went down to 2nd place



Porsche 956 , fastest car on the Nordschleife ever also had 2 turbos on it.



Mid 70s 320 turbo:




Etc etc.

And off course I'm totally mad about any M3 CSL, my favourite new car is a 458. Don't get me wrong. The 997/991 GT3's are marvelous.. etc.

About turbo lag. Flooring it at 2000rpm in my current car, there might be a supertiny hesitation but that's about it, it blasts away like there's no tomorrow.

My former E90 M3 6MT doing the same thing at 3000 rpm, no lag, but the accellerationblast just isn't there...

I know it's also about gearing, revs, weight(very important that one)

We're talking Ferrari here , masters in building engines. The world's best engines.

No worries.

Well I have one thing to worry about.

I can't afford a Ferrari

You are saying 911 Turbo is as responsive as 911 GT3?

And no turbo can provide the sound and throttle response of H/R NA engines, while staying street legal.

How does S65 rev up to 8,400 RPM from factory without flat plane crank? It has quite little to do with the crank type.



I don't doubt the Ferrari's engine will be nice, but if they are not able to make it better than NA engines, they will not build FI engines. THe thing is they have been working on new FI engines for some years already, with the first ones found in the new Maserati Quattroporte (3.8l V8) and Ghibli (3.0l V6). They sound very good. Not to compare with normal turbo engines just as you can't compare normal naturally aspirtated engine with those of high-performance cars.

The worst thing of FI engines is not lag or sound thought, but running out of boost at high RPM. I'm sure Ferrari won't have this issue.

Garage List
2011 BMW 335d  [3.75]
variable valve timing, advanced ECUs, turbo(s) AND dual clutch gearboxes will make the next gen Fiats really fun. They gotta do something about the GTRs kicking arse.

Here is a clue...is the S65 forced induction? I never said a crossplane crank NA motor can't rev high. You would have to be pretty stupid to not know that.

The turbo V8 in MP4-12C would not rev to 8,500 if it wasn't a flat plane crank. Lower rotating mass allowing higher maximum revs.

I have seen some cool LS V8 flat plane crank conversions revving over 9,000 rpms. Flat plane cranks are also the reason why exotics sound the way they do.

Exactly.

But imo: It's the whole package that counts. The engine is one of them.
Take a look at the F40 again.

Not running out of boost @ 8500rpm is possible for a FI engine, but the price is high. And we're talking Ferrari here.

Not running out of hp beyond 6000/ 7000rpm for a NA engine is possible too, but it has its price(///M , Porsche, Ferrari) because any normal streetcar from VW to Toyota with a normal NA engine sucks beyond 6000 or sometimes even 5000rpm.

The newer turbo engines of those normal streetcars are beyond their limits too at 6000/6500 but they still deliver power at midrange. Except for the 114i BMW engine that's the worst engine BMW ever created imo.

Anyway. It's about engineering and engineering involves a lot of money.

That's one of the reasons why a 458/F12/Aventador/GT3RS is a tad more expensive than a Toyota

Ferrari will come with an excellent FI engine I'm shure.

RUF already did that too in 1987 with the CTR, fastest roadcar back then. Biturbo. Turbolag. But a blast

I'd much rather have an N/A engine than turbo in something like a Ferrari but if they feel like they can get the same type of sound and excitement they get with their N/A motors, doesn't sound like a bad idea.

Very sad. I so much prefer a good NA engine, I had a 335i did not love the power delivery, I had an e60 M5, loved the power delivery (just two examples, I know, not fair).
