    That makes more sense. I just sold a Ford Focus ST that had a 2.0l ecoboost turbo that put out less than 300HP. I also have a BMW 328 also with a 2.0l turbo four that puts out about 255hp. Any number north of 300hp on 2.0l has to be pushing between 16-20lbs of boost and with a lot of boost comes a lot of heat and that would my biggest concern wheeling on a hot day.

    I'm no so concerned about torque or lag. These modern turbo engines can reach near max torque sub 2000rpm.

Plus trying to wheel delicately while also keeping the turbo spooled up will be a challenge. It sounds really gimmicky to me, but I hope they pull it off though!
    This ^^^ especially in a manual trans....not practical. diesel low end torque and/or v8 swaps will still reign supreme. no 4 cylinder can complete with the low rpm torque that they produce. usable torque is all that matters for us

    True, but I think it’ll be a good while before you see a JL with either of those, if ever. The JK is nice enough to still have manual shift linkages that easily cross over to the GM transmission. Also take into consideration all the other electronic features we haven’t see yet.

    I’m sure somebody will do it but doubtful we’ll anything on the scale of what MoTech has accomplished with the JK.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
