Not sure who's car will be faster.

That being said and all things being equal, a 400 whp nitrous car will 99.9% of the time, be faster than a 400 whp turbo or supercharged car.

Nitrous build will be more beneficial. He will make more torque and more horsepower throughout the wideband. Even though you may make more peak hp. He will always also have more torque than you. Nitrous you have all your power on the hit. Turbo you have to let the turbo to spool up to reach full boost.

Nitrous vs Turbo

If he is on full bolt ons and does a 150 shot he will be around 410-420rwhp and probably a crap ton of more torque. But if you achieve 450rwhp you should kill him.

Nitrous is no worse for your engine than a turbo. Hey at least you only have to spray nitrous when you absolutely need it. Turbo spools and adds power every time the car gets above cruising speed.


You tell me which is gonna be worse

Not always. Nitrous cars have some of the best 60 foot times bar none but turbo cars slowly reel them in on the big end and if the turbo car makes the slightest more power than the nitrous car it will win. Also depends on driver and if turbo car is actually on boost at a 40 roll. They will not both make the same power anyways someone's having more or less. One will have more torque the other more Hp lol.

You will win roll race for sure. Drag will depend on rt, how well each hook and how good the driver is. Get video of it too bro. How was the on3 install. You running the on3 wastegate still? How much boost? I'm a nitrous guy myself but I do like turbos over superchargers and have owned two turbo mustangs.

Sounds like you have a good chunk more peak horsepower.
How do they compare throughout the curve and hows the torque?

Well race and find out then, internets racing is sadly performed by 75% of forum goers who never ever go to a track or even a dyno and find out wtf.

Street racing will never stop just saying and it's not like it's a race in town where you can kill someone maybe it's out in the middle of nowhere you can get hurt at the track and the street

You haven't been to Cali. You see the twin turbo mustang that killed 2 people in LA? Then there was a Lamborghini that was racing and crashed on a public street about an hour from my house.

It isn't safe at all. Even Street Outlaws has paramedics on site.

Since it's obvious it was street racing it would be against the forum rules to continue this discussion.
