Supercharger uses 8 oz of supercharger oil in the snout.
Turbo is a plumbed line to and from the engine oil system.
I can't agree with them wearing the motor more. We have documented cars on this site with 300K plus supercharged. There are many well documented cars on other sites with turbos in the higher mileage.
From a wear perspective..a turbo probably wears itself out quicker than a supercharger. But overall they are both pretty good if you choose a reliable build.
Saw a $2500 CT turbo kit this morning. With everything.
