right, b/c youve obviously had expierience w/both engines in the same car.. and btw, "better" is an opinion, no vanos is more responsive, and therefor i felt that the non-vanos had much more power, def. towards the lower end of the spectrum, while vanos was weak until the very upper end of the spectrum.. but really, why should i question your authority even though you havent had expierience w/both(in the same car, to keep all the other factors constant)
but either way, vanos or non vanos, Manual tranny FTW!
