TurboSuperPowerAdder

I'm sure this is probably a big repost on here but...

I'm not sure if we have any turbo'd v6's on here? But, when it comes to price/ efficiency/power gain, which is the best between power adders? Turbo? Supercharger(if so which kind: roots, centri.?) Twin turbo? Nitrous(wet or dry)?

I was just wanting to hear some opinions on what is the best way to spend your money and your reasoning behind it. And if you've done one of the above is it worth it? Would you change anything?

I don't wanna start any "part patriotism" fights on here, just want to hear opinions.

Re: TurboSuperPowerAdder

turbo is the best, it takes no power to make power.

There are turbo v6's out there and we have a couple on this forum. Generally with a supercharger you will need 12 psi to get about 300rwhp on a 99-04 gt. With a turbo you can do that on less psi, and make more power in the end of course.

Re: TurboSuperPowerAdder

superchargers are generally cheaper and easier to install and such so thats a plus for some.

Re: TurboSuperPowerAdder

Turbos aren't exactly "free" power as they do eat up power by causing an exhaust restriction, but they are more efficient than a super. Another thing to think about is turbo lag. Super chargers are "always-on" while turbos need to spool up.

Yeah, but who cares about a spool up when it's all about the sound of the BOV.

The right sized turbo will have little to no lag at all.

Re: TurboSuperPowerAdder

You need to match the power adder to the application. For what I need, a turbo would be a HUGE waste of money. For some, a supercharger doesn't fit the bill.
The wrong size turbo or blower will be a big waste as well.

So in short, there is no over all "BETTER" between the two. And anyone who tells you different doesn't know anything about forced induction set ups.

Re: TurboSuperPowerAdder

I'd recommmend super. I've got a Procharger system with intercooler. I'm making 10lbs of boost and pounding out ****-tons of power and torque. Right now, its set a very conservative tune.

Whatever you decide to do. Build your bottom end (if your wanting to make more than 350hp). Build your bottom end, the skys the limit in power. You can find forged bottom end from a Thunderbird Super Coupe(3.8) both supercharged and turbo itterations have forged bottom ends.

Man, this is offely exciting stuff. Whatever you decide its going to hella crazy and exciting.
