Supercharger is spooling as soon as you turn the key

a super charger is powered with the belts, and has a direct connection to the engine.

a turbo makes very low boost at idle. You won't notice the turbo until they spool up.
A small turbo spools up very fast but puts out very low boost. Larger turbos spool up slower but give a lot more boost on the high end.

I like superchargers better. You get the power on the low end, instantly which would be fun for drag racing and burnouts.

right on point. I know this wasn't an option but how about twin turbo? you could have a bigger and smaller turbo that way turbo lag is reduced. plus I think we can have all agree blow off valves sound pretty sweet

They both really give direct power, but it's just at different RPM ranges depending on what kind of turbo you get.

Turbos will you give more power at the same level of boost purely because superchargers suck power to make power. However like mentiond above a turbo wont make any power until it spools up (or very little). The only turbo kits i'm aware of for V6 mustangs are TMA turbos.

if you want the best down low in the rpm range power go with a positive displacment blower like a kenne bell or whipple, but they dont make kits for the 3.8L.... you can retro fit a M112 Eaton (root style not the same as twin screw and not as good) but they work and are cheap~ the issue is no cooling solution.... but you get 300rwhp pretty easy (no more though)

Centrifugal supercharges are fine, work good just dont have that down low kick compared to a positive disp. blower (root or twin screw style). Turbos are fine, but will cost WAY more.
