    KMS will use more than one driver to get the best development data back to VW. Printsport also has a good relationship with EVEN Management, so lets see who will drive where!

    I think that the engine performance need to be judged on the complete engine package, not on ''the bore''. The intake, exhaust, turbo, cooling... are from such a great importance to have it all optimised for that engine.
    Citroen decided to stay with that engine so they must be conviced that it will be possible to have a good performing engine.

    The parameter while of course not the only one is important because the narrow space in PSA engine limits the size of valves.

    The reason why they stay with it is simple - they don't have any other choice.
