    i posted in this thread months ago, and ive thought about it...

    its really difficult to compare these two. each does its job in a different yet efficient way when set up correctly.

    i guess my input is supercharger for a mainly street application

    turbocharger for a race application.

    1/8th 7.8-7.9sec = 1/4 mile 12.4-12.3sec
    it also depends what trap speed you were at in 1/8th and also how much stall you are running, 60' times etc... to get back on the s/c vs tubo setup, wich one hurts mpg more?
    it really depends on the application the setup and boost level. I find a single big turbo is more efficient than 2 smaller asynchronous turbos, but not always the case etc etc...

    what about compared to a s.c.? (mpg)

    that I don't know. I would think they would be close at the same boost level.

    supercharger hurts gas mileage more because it constantly makes boost. you can drive a turbocharged car under the curve so to speak where it makes minimal boost and will run just as any n/a engine would. if you have a large turbo for example, that starts to make boost at 4000 rpms, then you shift accordingly and stay in a higher gear for cruising, thus eliminating the need for more fuel because boost isnt really being made.

    that is only good if youre not running the bottle. when you spray you will use a ton of fuel to compensate for the gas. the advantage is that you dont spray if you dont want to.....
