    Well i like the supercharger because of low RPM boost but turbos are know to be cooler and produce more HP....

    Superchargers does rob slightly off the engine HP while turbos run from the exhaust..

    Finally with the supercharger you will get the whine of the belt... or the turbo you will get that nice blow off...

    It's really up to you.. I on the other hand am split between the two... So i cant make up my mind!

    The turbo will have way more torque down low then the supercharger

    That's true in most if not all applications and I must admitt up front to being biased towards turbocharging, that said a big twin screw SC (nod a PD SC) does produce aweome torque down low.

    I'm a fan of superchargers (roots) awsome low end grunt and nothing says move like a rippin supercharger at 4k. Turbos are also great but they require so much fabrication and pipeing to work right.

    it's all about the procharger but the turbo's are making good power gains up top, i really did not expect the sts kit to do so well but it does not matter turbo or supercharger........... HELL YEA FOR FORCED INDUCTION

    I must say, one of the coolest things Ive seen was a video of a turbo'd Camaro SS, the sound alone almost made me want to go buy one and put the setup on it.

    V8, turbo spool, external wastegate... oh my!

    There is no lag - lag is a thing of the past. Our turbo kit will spool and make boost faster then any centrifugal and better the the magnuson

    turbo are higher maintenance, and there aren't many complete kits cept for STS, and the thought of leaving my turbo out in the open like that scares me... but if ur up to the task of the turbo and know enuff about what ur doing, i think its hte way to go

    Ya know how they say "there is no replacement for displacement"? Turbo or supercharger, they both have their pros and cons. But, why bother with either when retaining stock displacement. Gonna do something then do it right. Save your money and commit to your motor. If you dont, you'll never truly feel the true power of your super or turbo. Also, all I ever here is "power power power!" Try droping the weight of your car 500lbs and feel that kind of power! "There is no replacement for less weight"-Me.
