Eric Mayne at The Detroit News explains why US automakers shy away from using turbo-chargers in their engines despite the fact that 4-cylinder turbos provide better power and economy than a standard 6-cylinder.. The story repeatedly mentions fans, like the one pictured here, of European turbos but completely omits the fanaticism for the Japanese turbos. Regardless there is a very cool illustration of how a turbo works and Eric discusses the future of the turbo with the Big 3.
