Re: A4 1.8q vs S4

>From what I've seen on magazines, a tuned-out 1.8t has one heck of a turbo
lag. Very boggy if you don't rev it high, and will feel like 1.8 liter
engine it is if you're not in the high RPM. Some issues of drivability
comes around here... If you're going to race it, then it's probably fine.
But what if you're trying to go to your neighborhood grocery shop?

If I'd want something for everyday driving, I think I'd go for the S4 with
its 2.7 V6. If you wanna race, then the 1.8t will probably have weight
advantage after all the upgrades.

On the other hand, I'd like to see how much can you get out of that
twin-turbo'ed V6. More than what 1.8t can give?
