I had a gtv v6 24value and that was very special, not many 12v around very rare!

Hi Jon,

 

I hope you don't mind me asking but I know you have owned both so I guess you are the best qualified person I know who can answer this.

 

How does the ts turbo compare to a busso? I mean in terms of reliability performance and general smiles per gallon?

 

Cheers

 

Steve.

Hi Steve,

In general it is for sure the reliability will be less on the TS turbo compared with a V6.

MPG on TS will be better, if they did a good job on the mapping.

Looking good.

 

Welshsteve the v6 busso vs twinspark turbo both have their advantages.

 

The v6 is more reliable, smooth power delivery and feels quicker at higher speeds and that sound is addictive! 

 

The ts turbo I always have that dont push it to hard in the back of my mind because it's a twinny. Off the mark ts turbo is quicker than the v6 and when the turbo kicks in you get a more aggressive shove in the back, sounds great aswell but not as good as the v6..... not many engines do lol! In the corners the ts turbo is fantastic and on a windy road just brilliant! My v6 always was a little nose heavy but I never had q2. So both have their different strengths. 

 

So I would recommend a supercharged v6 with q2 lol!

 

my friend is currently fitting a supercharger to his twinspark where the aircon unit fits 😎

A guy in the Netherlands also fitted a supercharger but kept the airconditioning.

He used the Eaton M45 (a bit smallish) and made 190hp.
