The cool thing to do to one, in my mind, would be to strap a second turbo on 
the top and see if we can't get more horses out ot it. OTOH, for in-city 
driving, and low-traffic highway driving, the low acceleration times isn't a 
big deal. It's just the constant get-on/get-off driving of commuting on 
short highway stretches where it would suck.
