Default Turbo true or false

My volvo can beat a stock 2008 doge stratus.
my volvo can beat most current 4 cylider cars without turbos in acceleration and top speed.

I was driving my friends dodge, and she said it was really peppy. Sure, from 0-15. once you get up there, it takes a while....
my Volvo may not spin out, but it sure packs a punch. It's likely to be pushing 180+HP right now with the cheese grater mod.

I'm not really sure what you are asking here. Is adding a turbo to a four cylinder going to make it faster than most other four cylinders? Yes, that's an obvious answer, you are force inducing a motor, whenever you do that you gain power, and that creates speed.

yes about the cheese grater, and I was just wondering because people don't seem to think my car is all that fast. I don't think they have driven it before... turns out her dodge is a freakin' four cylinder... now, looking at the v6 toyota of theirs, I think I beat it.

A buddy of mine had an early 90's 760 turbo. Was quick for a grocery getter, but wasnt all that impressive. My buddy thought is was amazing untill he sat in my brothers stock evo.

IMO turbo saabs and volvos are some of the most underrated cars out there. I think i remember Jeremy Clarkson realizing that a Saab 900 turbo had a faster 50-80 time than a 911 turbo.

760 and 960s are a joke. the 740 turbo is fun to drive. I only drove it once....
Now, I want to drive the 850 t-5R... thats a rare and fast car.
