First, less scotch! Second, a 2.5 is as bulletproof as a 2.3. YOu end using factory parts anyway. A supercharger, even ERT's, reduces the engine life, and is more costly in the long run. The big question is: spend money now, or spend more money later. PErsonally, after being burned so many times, i would rather spend money now, than later. Also, a 2.5 has a much smother torque curve than a supercharger. Ask any racer, and they will say that a reliable and predictable (i.e. smooth) engine is better than raw power.

who has moved to gran marnier, since the beer is now gone...



Im just want to know if somebody that had open to 2.5 lt is really a big difference than the 2.3 lt, is just a question becouse is so expensive to stroke the engine, maybe supercharge, i have seen graphics that can eat a 2.5, i know that a supecharge engine is more easy to broke.

So does are my questions.

Thanks

And i still think that is really stupid my question, but thanks anyway.
