I do Frank! They were awesome! I understand what some say and think (wanting to go back to the V-10 or V-12 formula but.....give it a chance. I just hope that they do not de-tune them to much. I think I read somewhere something about a 11,000 rpm limit. That would suck!

The F1 circus as a whole cause more pollution than just the cars racing & testing. All those trucks, ships, planes etc, all the spectators travelling on top of that. F1 cars could be powered by the Flintstones and it still would be far from a green sport. All this talk is nothing more than a spin.

Best sound is the old v16s from way back in time.

frank. the bmw gave 1500bhp in quali trim, and 1200bhp in race trim!

but you should go tho the btcc thread. they have begun using 1.6 turbos there, and from posters reports, they sounded lousy. but at the end of the day, it is not the sound that matters in f1, but the racing. so as long as we get fast and furious competition, we will have to live with whatever is ultimately decided. i would not stop watching if turbos were used, even though i hate the things.
