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.
So you're going to stick to the story that the bmw inline 6 turbocharged engine is the BEST
turbocharged engine in the whole world?
I don't think there's anything wrong with the engine. It's proven itself in multiple bmw cars, but when you throw the word "best" around that's where I feel that you are wrong because there are a lot of cars out there with better turbocharged engines imho.
