Turbo or supercharger

Which one would be a better power adder for our sixxers? I know turbos cost more and all that in the long run. But what would be better to run on our sixxers?
And what are all the bolt-on's available for our sixxers?
And also should I port and polish upper and lower intakes? As well as heads?
And should I get a lumpy cam from supersixmotorsports?

Sorry for all the questions!

hey man with the money ur going to waste on this u might aswell buy a gt
butt....
if you are going to keep yours i would sugest supercharer with undersrover pully and ac delete pully i would port n polish the lower intake and get yourself a pair of longtubes with a good exhaust (of your choice no specific on needed)
also to support your supercharger u would want to get it dyno tuned i would also suggest if u have auto get a jmod if you don't ad u have Manuel i would upgrade to a stage 2 clutch and a different drive shaft after that you'll be set in my opinion and forged internals depending on the boost you will want to run may be required as far with the cam goes i dont know much about that area someone else will inform you on that

turbo good for high end power higher rpms
supercharger good for low end torque
you choose remeber turbos have good power but are not always the safest
and on a personal note i love the supercharger whine

With a properly sized turbo it would spool quick so low end would not be lagging

Horsepower Per pound of boost, turbo all the way

I hate to be " that guy" but you need a better platform for the kind of performance you want . I would sell your car buy a gt and turbo it

Never said twin turbos :p

Lol
But I just want good power I know it'll cost a lot but I think it would be worth it.. Just to say you've done all these things. "Built not bought!"
But idk I may get a 2013 v6 and boost that one!
I won't be getting a GT until after I turn 23 lol

I've always liked superchargers better. Turbos can make fore power. I'd probably take a twin screw supercharger over a turbo, maybe try and make enough power to scoot me back in my seat and lift the front end up a little...

I think a boosted 4.0 makes 400+whp.
I thought I saw one that was pushing 400+. A quick search only brought 300+hp.

400hp 4.0 would need some high boost! Yea I think a bolt on 3.7 can take a low boosted 4.0.

go turbo brotha. especially if you're going to get that 2013. you can make more power off of a single turbo. but of course you're going to have to build the block if you plan on running any higher than 9 pounds of boost. I think the 3.7 at 9 pounds will put you damn close to 400 at the wheels. you could probably hit it if you had full bolt ons and a solid tune

12 pounds i would forge ten boost you don't want to add unnecessary stress to your motor with that much boost stock from what I've learned is build a good foundation before you build the house not the other way around u could damage your motor while ur running that much boost n it could cost u more

He could save up some money while running a safe boost level then start building the internals and such. It's quite costly.

that'll definitely help strengthen the internals a bit. 12 pounds is still really high for a stock motor even with meth. I'd play it safe tbh. you could hit 400rwhp easily on 9 psi with bolt ons, supporting mods, and a nice tune. no point in risking blowing the engine.

if it blows then thats just a excuse to go built. if you are afraid to blow it then leave it stock or get a new hobby.

Yes there is, after I blow it, I do suspension
Then comes internals, then ported/polished heads w/ cams
I'm trying to decide weather I should do intake manifold during the boost phase, or with internals
And by the time I'm finished, brace yourselves,
18 psi

you do know that if a engine is "blown" it is referring to a supercharger setup or the motor is destoryed internally and needs to be rebuilt right? If its turbo, its referred to as "boosted" or just plain, turbocharged. but anyway, good luck rebuilding it. you're going to need more than just a built 3.7 w/ suspension upgrades. youre going to need a built tranny especially if you want to run 18 psi and keep it your DD. Just sounds silly to me. could of had a v8....lol but hey more power to ya.

Trust me. I've got the entire build, Including tranny, saved on my computer (I even have my wanna do build for my classic)
There isn't one thing I haven't considered for this build
And just a heads up
Motor building is in 2 stages
Forged bottom end, then head work.
It seems backwards,

---------- Post added at 03:06 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:06 PM ----------

But there's a reason for it, I'm going to jump to 15 lbs halfway
