in america they tune the 8v with turbo's.......but in the uk we dont see the point when the vr6 is little more cash

They have the crossflow head,  makes turboing the engine a heck of alot easier.. Which i suppose is why superchagers are a much easier choice....  We are stuck with these awkward counterflow heads  :angry:
