    Default 2.0 turbo or gsi3.2 what would you choose?

    as above i may be chopping the signum in for something more powerful and my current choice is either the 2.0 turbo or gsi 3.2 so was wondering what other peeps would choose,i imagine the gsi would blow a standard 2.0 into the weeds and with an awesome soundtrack too but ive never had a turbo charged petrol car and i must admit i quite fancy having the turbo engine and getting it tweaked,also are there any known common faults with the 3.2 engine?

    Ive got a Signum 3.2v6, Ive not driven a turbo, but i imagine that when the turbo engine has run out of gear, the 3.2 will still be pulling away as its all torque, and it sounds the nuts :-)

    A remapped turbo will keep with a 3.2 up to a point, into treble figures anyway before the V6 grunt starts to pull away.

    Both can achieve silly speeds, a remapped 2.0T will pass 150mph and I've heard of V6's doing over 170Mph.

    V6 for the sound (with an induction kit fitted)

    2.0T for low Tax and tune up options

    IMO Does depend on your driving style also....

    3.2V6 For the sound, 2.0T for the tune ability. Tax doesn't come into it if your driving a 20mpg V6!
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    also are there any known common faults with the 3.2 engine?

    Bullet proof engines, they are quite something....but if i were in your shoes, i would also take the 2.8 V6T into account

    No common faults with the 2.0T either mate Not engine crippling ones anyway.
