Down below I will list the pros and cons of having a turbo vehicle, so you know what to get for your next purchase.

Pros of a Turbo car

  • Increases power of your vehicle.

  • Don’t need to invest in a v8 to get a large amount of power.

  • They run on exhaust power which doesn't really put anything to waste.

  • The cheaper way to upgrade the power of your car.

  • Works only after a certain rpm which can save you fuel.

Cons of a Turbo car

  • It’s an expensive feature that requires a lot of work to be put on your car if it doesn’t come standard in it.

  • Additional tubing and wiring which can go wrong.
