no guys, I know they are not running lean, which is exactly my point, you cant make the power with out the fuel, and guess what turbos only add heat which requires a little more fuel. F1 is what happens when rule makers decide they know better than the free market. Sit back and enjoy. BTW, torque is the product of the boom, the guys in the seat only care about the power, The power is the product of the torque and the rpms, regardless of where the rpms are, you will not get more torque with less fuel, because you cannot drive the pistons properly with out the correct ratios (A/F), asssuming the mechanical side is setup appropriately. The 1.6 liter turbo will not have more torque because it will have lower compression, it might produce more power because it's optimized to run at a lower frequency, but guess what, all that power creates heat, and turbos create much more heat, and when you have to much heat you have to spend more money and take in more fuel to keep things from going ping
