I talked to a guy I bought my rims from he had a cobra supercharged said he was switching to a twin turbo set up cause he was getting beat by mustangs and cobra's with twin turbos at the track all the time

Proficient wise, turbos are better because they use exhaust gases and cool it and force back into the engine, and turbos are better at giving a bit more horse power, economically, a twin screw would be cheaper because it doesn't take as much to install, and in my mind they sound better and do what they do pretty good. Now the most proficient type are supercharger/turbo would be a centrifugal supercharger, I don't exactly remember why, but just the way it works makes it better than anything else. Plus then you don't have to mod your hood or anything, and still get forced induction, but twin turbo'd cars have more than just FI their engines are usually almost always built or the engine would well go boom. But in the end it's all up to you what you do.

Re: Twin screw v.s. Twin Turbo??

Price all depend on how mechanically inclined you are. You can buy a turbo, intercooler, piping, fuel management on eBay/ craiglist/swaps and piece it together yourself if able and confident, however for a novice or intermediate it may be wiser to get a supercharger kit ($3-5k) and install that with minimal tuning and have a powerful stang, however in comparison of lbs of boost to lbs of boost with the proper tuning I say turbo wins also. First you have to set a budget, then know your limits of mechanical knowledge, then decide.

Re: Twin screw v.s. Twin Turbo??

Turbo will always be more efficient because it has zero parasitic drag that is so common to belt-driven supercharger setups. So turbos will usually make 10-15%(estimate, can't remember correct number) more power. Also turbos will be cooler to run yet have a bit of lag- but if you don't want that lag go for a smaller size twin-turbo setup and it can be pretty instantaneous!

That being said... I would only go with a twin-screw because of the sound and the performance isn't bad at all. I don't want the fastest car; I'm a good enough driver to win races that are close.

I'm doing a complete build and going with a kenne bell 2.6 twin screw setup. Its enough to make ALOT of power but if you were going for the fastest the turbo is the way to go. I just can't stand the piping that's involved with turbos. Looks like a cluster of junk under the hood to me. I like the clean factory look of the supercharger and that scream you get from the twinscrews. I have a buddy doing that hellion on his 03 cobra for the simple fact that it's supposed to make 1100 hp with just that kit and tune. That's insane for 8k
