Another pro for turbo's is that you can brake boost while rolling which allows for the turbo to make peak boost before you even take off.

There is a link to t3/s3? ballbearing turbocharger unit. For 1.8L that includes variable area turbine nozzle. Advertising that it combines the low speed benefit normally associated with superchargers, with superior high end horsepower.

No price, I bet its expensive.

How much does an evo cost?

All the new diesels use the variable vane turbos. They give amazing low rpm torque.
The new EvoX goes for 40k but you could pick up a used vii or ix for like 16-20k. They're really fun cars. Same with the sti.
