    not unless you got a tq converter and good cam and are sitting at 3000rpm most of the times with a built up A4 tranny.

    Nothing is wrong with nitrous but its cheap fast power that runs out quick. When you put a turbo on it is there all the time when you need it not when you fill your bottle up.

    well in that case, nothing is really wrong with nitrous. it just puts alot more stress on the car than other power adders, plus u gotta refill

    S/C need more maintenence then a Turbo both are = on support mods the S/C needs oil that you need to change or it is taped in to your oil pan the Turbo just needs exhaust and a intercooler wich both really needs.
