    Single turbo > blower
    Blower = twin turbos

    on a turbo?? I guess 800RWHP with a proper single turbo and stock cubes is something you can do without boost. With the turbo, you can be streetable as well.

    I like both, what can I say, they both force lots of air and creates massive hp. So its all good!

    right but the really gay sound of turbo;s equal only for the race track.
    and i find that people with big hp cars have better luck and reliability with blowers, and some n20

    True.

    I understand the 'gay' sound of a ricer with a turbo.
    But a turbo V8 is a little different.

    Personal preference, i love roots style blowers. For my car with performance in mind, turbo all the way.

    Twin Screw or Twin Turbo.

    Both have their advantages, the Twin Screw has the ability to make boost and tons of torque ANYWHERE in the RPM range, which I like, but you can't beat a twin turbo setup for all-out top end power.

    A turbo wont run out of air it just keeps going. Don't have to worry about a belt slipping, changing, or anything like that.

    But, it will boil down to personal preference.

    I dont think either one cools any faster or slower than the other. What matters are the inlet air temps. Both can utilize an intercooler and methanol injection and get them down. Like I said it boils down to personal preference. I can get more power out of turbo cars and I dont have to worry about any belts. It's always there when my foot gets in it...
