Turbo Or N.a Which Is The Best Option
Posted 15 October 2018 - 07:17 PM
Well, I think everyone remembers the final agreed verdict of the last debate??? that an NA is for boys that like driving and a turbo is for the girls that like to drive in town with music playing loud.

NA is old and slow but really good fun to drive hard to get the most out of it.
It is 17 years old now, so modern hot hatches are quicker and very easy to drive but thats boring.
Turbo is quick out the box but you will always want more, as above, over taking is very easy as long as its not wet and you have a heavy foot.
Remember, you can't run either on just £5

As said, the best to drive both.
It's also about how you like power delivery.
NA is more instant, which - you can mark me biased having an ITB setup - I think is better matching the general handling feeling. I can put it into a controlled little slide exit at the hairpins just by the right foot, not sure how doable is that in turbo.
Power wise, I only feel lack of power at higher speeds (beyond 100mph), but then this car was not built for fast highway rides. For power eventually you get used to everything, so it's never enough.

Turbo is like a kick from the devils boots.
Supercharged is like the hand of god shoving you forwards.
Try them all if you can

I sometimes think the car would be better with a 1.4 Twinport so that you could thrash it mercilessly without risking speeds that attract a jail sentence. I love driving any kind of vehicle irrespective of hp. Personally I think either vehicle sounds a little uninspiring as std but either should be great fun.

While get the whole n/a purity and work hard to get the best and S/C option just never really did it for me in the vx form....
Standalone 300+bhp ish good all round with m32 option, lsd, other choice goodies
But for me the good vag engine & boxes just move the game massivly forward
Something like golf r lump with or without dsg will go like stink and return great mpg / reliability. The tfsi before it also great
For more theatre other than cost of hardware 5 pot rs3 / tt rs would be a perfect match
On track may make a big power turbo setup harder to tame mind
My 2p worth

I was once told that a Turbo was like having a kick from the Devil..............
But Supercharged was like having the hand of God thrusting you forward!

I bought my NA in 2016 after coming from a Daihatsu Copen 1.3! Honestly the NA for me is perfect in the real world scenario, cruises along just fine, gets to 60 in a timed 6.1 even being 16 years old! Overtaking is fine. It does run out of puff around 100 but you have most of your fun from 0-60 and in the bends anyways! (my car has had a remap apparently by Thorney, although being an NA dont know how how much difference this makes) but i havent driven a normal NA to compare. Really, I don't think you will be disappointed with either.
