Kenne bell super charger vs turbo

So I'm seeing a lot of posts about on3 turbos lately and people talking about the potential to upgrade to a bigger turbo and make more power then even the mammoth supercharger. So what would be better for a drag car. And I'm talking about making around 800 hp

Well what is your budget? At that power level you are looking at a $15-$20k build. Also you will most likely want to go automatic which is where the turbocharger really shines. If you are staying manual I'd stick with the KB or a Tork Tech with a TVS. Also realize that horsepower isn't everything. There are GT500 owners with huge power cars making more than 800 that can't even run 10s because all they worried about is power. Then you have cars in the low 500rwhp area running low 10s/high 9s.

That's exactly what my budget will be this is ganna be a big project it will be a whole new motor. I'm even considering going for a 5.4 since it will be a whole swap

No reason to go 5.4, I'd go with a Teksid block 4.6 to drop almost 100lbs off the nose and you can do 800hp with a 2V or 4V either one will get there without much effort. TFS 2V heads cost about the same as a set of C heads totally gone through and there is less valvetrain and they are lighter. But that's up to you as well. If you ever want to go over 4 figures for power numbers the 4V is the way to go.

As far as the On3 kit. Its a good base kit but I would not run their turbo/wg/bov for a big money build like this. The tubing/headers do fit very well though. Only big issue is it is designed around Unauthorized Product Reproduction (UPR)'s k member which is a VERY good drag K member but if you want to handle its no better than stock. On the other hand if you were to buy the BEST turbo kit out there (Hellion) you can run a Maximum Motorsports K member/front setup as they have a K member specifically modified for Hellion's stuff .

Thanks for the input I hand considered changing to 4v for my big build I'm actully starting up my savings for this build. I was so shure about going with the mammoth for this build and now I'm just not shure
