The Turbo (basically a bus turbo) was required by intense to get the 3.8 out of the ditch so I figured I would show that with less than streetability the roots or SC is still considered a king.

I see alot of turbo talk coming (kits are on the way) in both the GP and Bonneville environment and the sc gets squashed in the on the road arena...But I thought this would be a nice comeback for anyone in a turbo or SC battle. Somewhat of a last word.

I have been a SC fighter for quite some time but have recently and reluctantly switched sides. Well on the technical side.. My heart is still with the SC.

Turbo'* aren superchargers are both very good and very useful. They each have their positives and negatives. Turbos are better in some situations and Superchargers in others, it just depends on when you want the power and how much power you want. You looking for torque??? Supercharger. Looking for horsepower??? Turbo. Looking for both??? Big Supercharger or Sequential Turbochargers. It all depends on what you're looking for.
