    i would say the easy one would be a supercharger but max power goes to a turbo just be sure it is tuned well

    most the people i have heard from say that it is a hassle having a turbo. IMO i think they are better that a charger. although the new procharger is pretty sick.

    Id go turbo, for many reasons, but is more difficult to install.

    Happy with my second turbo setup. If you've got all the right parts and patience, it's no more of a problem than any other setup. This time I went with the twins and couldn't be happier.

    Ive heard from some pros that turbos are better. every SC that stropes speed shop has ever put on hes ended up swapping it for a turbo later on down the road

    Why is it not consistant? Are you a 6 speed car?

    I have run Nitrous on a few automatic vehicles and as long as you keep the bottle pressure at 1000psi and the bottle is full you always runs the same times.

    I would always run 7.50-7.55 in the 1/8th with a 100 wet shot. Everytime out it always went the same times.
