That engine just makes more power, it's not better. With that big power comes massive turbo lag, big fuel consumption, and reduced long term reliability (just because it doesn't blow up on the dyno, it doesn't mean it will last 150 k miles).

And Audi had a turbo 5 cylinder that could be taken to 600 BHP in the 80s, and to 900BHP in the early 90s. Google Dahlback Audi and enjoy.

But they're just not better engines, simply because they can make more power.
