      come up with another term Linea-Lover. "afterburner" sounds lame.

      it sounds lame because the AIR is doing its job *before* combustion, not *after*.

      call it "air force" or something.

      I dont know much about the technical aspects of all this, but cant a similar reduction in turbo lag be achieved by a combination of synthetic engine oil + k&n/green cotton air filter + higher octane fuel?

      Lets do not consider two aspects that you mentioned as they are a constant factor. The only variable is the AIR or K&N/Green cotton air filter.

      They do help but not as much as an AIR. The stock intake has quite a few bends which results in loss of pressure as well. Now you might also ask what if I remove the filter box and fix a conical filter straight away. Most of the times the location of the filter box is such that the air over there is hot and turbulent. As the car moves faster the turbulence increases. This will not help the engine to breathe properly.

      Thus, a custom AIR is one of the best ways to feed cold and streamlined air to the engine.

      So why didn't Fiat do it themselves? I am sure they have bright engineers who have PHDs in air intakes. What are the drawbacks of the AIR over stock? This thing can't be easily mass fitted in an assembly line?

      Thats because all manufacturers tend to keep the cars on a conservative side .
      Its like, why aren't the all the Mercs mapped by AMG? They can very well do it and squeeze the most out of the engine, but they don't.

      So are you now saying your car is running closer to its tolerance limit? Is that a good thing in the long run?

      And a mere remap does not make a C or an E an AMG. There are a whole lot of performance parts that go in as well whose tolerances are much higher than stock.

      Another thing about the people holding PHDs in companies. The Punto 90 is a classic example. They map the engine in a way that it feels no more powerful than its smaller 75bhp sibling. So does that mean the engine is not capable or inferior? It definitely is not. Its how the design and map them.

      No, its no where close to the tolerance limit yet. The 1.4T-Jet has lot more in store. A mere AIR will not take on the brink of failure. Modern engines are extremely capable and can withstand a lot of abuse without any damage what so ever.

      Yes I know that. I didn't say that it'll convert them into AMG's. AMGs are in a completely different league. My point is that with a simple remap and without changing any internals they would be able to get a lot more out of the same engines with the same reliability.
