turbo/sc question

Hey, just a question. On a stock, unmodified Engine on a v6 (say except a CAI and a re-tune for 3.783 gears and better performance) would both a turbo and a SC be safe on the engine? I've heard a lot of horror stories about people blowing engines with turbos and SC's. So, what safer on an unmodified engine? would modifying the engine be reccomended? what about for a daily driver?

Re: turbo/sc question

Either one is safe IF, and I say IF, they are tuned correctly...you MUST get them tuned by someone who knows what they are doing...also, the amount of boost they are making will determine whether or not the stock engine will support them or not...

When dealing with any type of power adder (i.e. tubro, nitrous, s/c, etc), everything depends on the tune...if the tune is done badly, then the motor goes boom...if it is tuned correctly, you should have a long lasting, high performing engine, depending on how much boost you are wanting to run or power you want to make...
