  1. Is Turbocharge Supercharge (TSI) the direction for car development to push more power ? TSI seems like a good idea where a small engine displacement can produce a lot of power and yet it is fuel efficient. Fuel efficiency is the key selling point for car now, isn't it ? Can other car also implement TSI ? Is TSI VW proprietary technology ?

Toyota Team Europe Group A Toyota Celica GT4 ST185 A little history about the company before we continue with the story. Toyota Motorsport GmbH started in the 1970s as Toyota Team Europe (TTE). The company was responsible for providing technical support for rally driver, Ove Andersson, who was driving a Celica at that time. They also developed the first Japanese car to win the WRC. In 1993, TTE changed their name to what it is today and they got involved in other racing competitions as well such as the Le Mans and Formula 1.

  7. After I read this article, I've learnt alot of new insights about turbo. http://www.cse.uconn.edu/~yelevich/turbo/turbo.html When you buy a car, choose one with exhaust manifold facing the front of the car...
