    Is the L67 supercharged motor smoother than the atmo ecotec?

    I am aware that the L67 motor is internally different than the Ecotec in order to suit the forced induction, but what I want to know is do they sound and drive similar (light throttle that is)

    I guess another way to put it would be to say if the two engines were compared as naturally aspirated units how differently would they drive, I know the L67 would have reduced compression but I am referring more to how they sound and how they drive, NVH etc. Is the L67 a smoother job than the stock and harsh Ecotec?

    I've driven my VT L67 in stock and modded form and also I have a VY V6 Crewman and there is no great difference between them...apart from the obvious power increase :D. The L36 Crewman must have a higher stall than the L67 as its revs flare a lot more on light throttle and the TCC drop out is much more noticeable in the VY.
