Whats the go with the turbo

Unread post by davidm2 » September 5th, 2010, 5:29 pm

well im looking at buying a 2000 model 3l turbo diesal.

the thing is im about to be on my p's and with the new law it says that we cant have any car with a turbo in it or a v8.

im not quiet sure wether this includes turbos diesals tho. as its obviously not going to make the car go faster, if anything it will go slower.

if u know anything please help, im also from adeladie

cheers

last i remember reading about the new laws in SA you are alowed to drive turbo diesels under the new rules..

i am curious to the conclusion drawn that the turbo will make the car go slower though!

Turbo = wheel spin = slower off the line haha

Pretty sure turbo diesels are legal because there not classified as high performace vehicles
