First of all, please don't think that GM is the main thrust behind the appeal. Ilmor, not General Motors manufacturers the engine. Who owns Ilmor? None other than Roger Penske. Roger's company created the Honda V8 engine from 2003-2011 and now they make the Chevrolet. It's just a badge on an Ilmor. As far as the air inlet, Borg-Warner supplied the wrong part to Honda's single turbocharger. The proper configuration for the single turbo is .71 not the .57 that was originally supplied. So, the Honda was at a disadvantage because of Borg-Warner's mistake, not because of some kind of technical superiority by Ilmor.
