There are only two alternatives
- I6 with 1 greater TwinScroll and "eTurbo" - could perhaps be quoted as TriTurbo by BMW terms.
- I6 with 2 TwinScrolls and "eTurbo" - quoted as Biturbo or perhaps OuadTurbo.
The first is what has been described to me- as the eTurbo does not need two scrolls as it was explained to me.
You might also like to see that the mainstream media has now picked up on our reporting....
Friday I heard from my source and posted elsewhere as was confirmed by your source as well and today Road and Track are reporting the same.
