They should be but I never had one.........

plus I think there is more air inside a CIEM than a XBA-3........

These things are crammed inside..........

That's why I didn't wait for the Turbo and bought the Carrera S instead. Frankly, 400bhp is plenty for that car, it's very lively. 0-60 in 3.5s isn't something to sneeze at. One issue I have with forced induction Porsches is their turbo lag, it's very pronounced and I prefer a linear throttle. I don't like driving along at 60, mashing the gas, then very suddenly going from 250hp to near 600, and the TC/ESP is fighting to keep you in a straight line. The MP4-12C manages to avoid be plagued with it, despite its engine being roughly the same displacement. I doubt it's because of R&D, Porsche has much deeper pockets than McLaren.

My dude on the "inside", actually it's a she, tells me that Ruf is going to rework the 991 Turbo, taking it to over 800hp, and giving it a proper manual gearbox. Probably limited to 10-15 cars (as usual for them). Would be a nice investment, but look for them to start at $800k.

This started a few weeks back when I was deciding which new headphone to buy......

I think it's warrenpchi's influence as back tracking I see this started on his review of the HD215..........

 

My first thought was that you were typing (always) on a 'Mobile.'

And revising their interviews for prospective buyers. tongue.gif

It's like a play on baseball expressions. The first line just means something like unexpectedly and the second line isn't meant to make sense except that it's another baseball expression.

Like I said, not really worth explaining.

Have you by any chance driven the F1? Just curious is all. It's supposed to be exactly the opposite of the 12C in its daily drivability.

I'm a little surprised that they haven't been able to tame the lag. I think BMW did a great job with that on the N54 and N55 but we're not really talking about the same kind of output for a 6 cylinder.

I'm a believer that any sort of punctuation should really only be used to impart a sense of emotion to the written words. Ellipses are good for sarcasm or for letting the reader fill-in the missing word, thus making the reader more involved in the story. Putting them everywhere just makes it sound like you are using "uptalk"

post #11968 of 21420
I didn't realise that my use of wrong punctuation mattered so much.
I really didn't think that much about it.
I can change if needed?

My rubbish english doesn't help here, but if I got right...there are a fair amount of cross species furs around there.

 

Not only Fisk but his suit is amazing.

post #11970 of 21420

So I bit... my ears will probably hate me.

 

Just Ordered one of those Hifiman RE-400s.

I'm also planning on getting some Denon AH-C300s in order to emulate my current full-size setup (i.e. RE-400 --> Mad Dogs and C300 --> Ultrasone Signature DJ).

 

Hopefully I'm making the right choices?!?

(and hopefully they'll be comfortable)

 

 

Thanks warrenpchi for the RE400 rec!
