Re: Turbo/s or supercharger?

If you have the money go turbo. Get a proven kit with it. Not some junk Hellion kit either. Superchargers can make same power as a turbo just needs more of a push. Ie more boost.

I do believe they are releasing t o be installed else where now. As far as install depends on where you go. Most places are going to charge 1500-3000 to install and tune a Supercharger or turbo.

There is a few having JPC's and Fatslane kits installed on S197. Plus these are proven kits.

I suggest you look at all the complaints on S197 and other forums on the Hellion kits for the 5.0's. No one but BBR has been happy with these kits. Plus they have posted on video of a car with a hellion kit running a 10.5 I believe but they you heard nothing of else about it. Some say the car was toast. Some say it didn't run as fast as it should have cause t was said to made like 800whp. BBR's 900whp+ Hellion car has yet to make a pass. But they swear its the fastest thing on earth. Now Hellion has a TT kit out that is nothing yet but a youtube dyno hit. made liek 650whp on 4lbs boost. Yet they have not done no track or any other kind of testing to show people. But they will sell it to you in a heart beat.

You guys know a twin screw is actually the least efficient of sc's and Turbo right. A twin screw uses a lot of power to to make its power. Using up about 30% of power it makes. A centrifugal uses less about 20% of power it makes making more rear wheel poet per lb of boost. A Turbo makes the most power per lb of boost as it is the most efficient. It uses 10% of power it makes to spin.

If done right with a Turbo you will have no lag as well. Making more power and will also produce more rwtq.

The percentages use are example but are correct in aspect ratio. Look around and do some research and you will see what I am taking about.

Superchargers are always taking power from the engine because they are belt driven, turbos don't always rob power from the engine because they are exhaust driven and in certain driving conditions (i.e. Highway driving) the turbo is operating very little if at all.

Superchargers are cheaper and they sound awesome! (and some have warranties)

But if I plan to void my warranty by making my mustang run 10's I might as well go all the way and get turbo.

When I went FI there was no proven Turbo systems out. Now I wish would have waited till end of this year and went with the TT system Jon lund and Ken bjonnes done. It just ran 9.4@150+ in the 1/4 at full weight leather and all. Then went 206 in the TX mile on 17lb boost. It goes to 25lbs. But they blew the tires off.

That's awesome. I would definitely like to go TT but there's not much out there you can just order up, have delivered, then install as far as twin turbo set-ups go.

But I guess there kit will be available before I have the money to go that crazy anyway. Lol
