Why is a 4cyl Turbo Diesel ok, but a 4 cylinder Turbo DI gas a bad design? Scotty was trashing the 2.3 saying that a lot of people have problems in the Mustang? I get suckered in to a video of his but end up getting annoyed before its done. Its not always against a Ford, sometimes its click bate. Curious as to everyones opinion about either Scotty or DI Turbo, or just Turbo engines overall. Why are diesels considered better with a turbo! Other than compression ignition, principals are basically the same.

"Does anyone care what Scotty Kilmer thinks".....Simple answer no. 😁

I watched one of his videos a while back and found him to be one the most annoying YouTubers out there.

You might have watched one of his better videos (if there is such one) but most of his are like this one. At least the couple I tried watching. :)

Ive watched several, I get sucked in because it looks interesting then ends up being more or less click bate! But Im also curious as to why a gas GTDI is frowned on so much! Yet a turbo Diesel is ok!

That I have no idea. This is my first turbo and have never owned a diesel.

Its not just that, My last car was the 2.0 ecopoop, traded it at 125k and never had an issue. I think highway miles keep most of that at bay. Most Ive heard is the turbo kills the motor earlier than a normally aspirated engine due to heat.
