Turbos can one really sorry for today: Since they run dizzy, shoveling newton many kilometers of torque - and then but to get back only to the cover at the end. How pronounced this or that is actually completely wurst - for their delayed response about, for their washed-out sound and for their rotation displeasure. More seriously: Sometimes you wonder whether you have just made it to reproach them that they have become not a naturally aspirated engine.
