Age old question. Turbo Vs. Supercharger
So.... What do you guys think? Do you like a turbo(or two, or 8..) or a supercharger?
We'll make this general and say on a sbc, but the application really doesnt make much diff.... lol
Im highly partial to a turbo because I've been around them and know a bit about them and how to make power from them..
Plus I love the sound...
Ok, pro's and cons to both sides...
No loss of power due to belt, (runs off exhaust pressure)
can produce a ton of Psi
Better gas milage than supercharger
Cons of turbo
Obvious boost lag (big con for 4 cylanders)
plumbing can be a problem
inconsistant boost from turbo sometimes
More readily avalible
Cons of supercharger
Belt drag at high end
Not for tight fit engine bays
less fuel efficient
