      they lie about fuel con. They say new V8 is economical but its not. its just cheaper to tune existing V8 than make BRAND NEW NA V10 with DI, cylinder shut down to 4 for city and a car that weights like 1700 kg and not 200 kg more

       I rather have more lightweight components than power, the aftermarket will provide plenty of power boast options.
