its all the drawbacks of a turbo (waiting for power) without the nice things of having a turbo (ie. added power).

there are also 2 versions: redtop and blacktop.

i forget which, but one has VVT-i (intake side only) while the other has VVT-i on both intake and exhaust, which does change the power band.

want more info?
