For series I i'd say same, but for series II N/A has much higher death rate.

I'd take a Series 2 L67 over an L36 any day. I'd definitely be happy with the power of a modded L36, but I couldn't live without worrying about it frequently. That'* just me though.

Series 1 to Series 1? L67 all the way, baby. I have stronger halfshafts, better rack, stronger trans, no plastic upper (which can still be a problem on the L27, though rare), forged internals.......better cooling.......(engine oil and trans, but SSE'* get that too).

And the supercharger will outlast the drivetrain. I don't see how that could be true.

odd, I know, but our supercharged cars have been more reliable than our N/A ones. Could be just that the N/A ones we owned were older, but still..
88 3800 (NA)
92 3800(NA)
93 3800(NA)
95 3800(NA)
97 3800(SC)
00 3800(SC)
overall, none of them had any major problems, but we've had no problems whatsoever with either of the supercharged engines, only the NA'*. could be an issue of age though. Either way, both are really reliable.

For cars with turbos, often times the added boost puts more wear and tear on the engine, and the owners driver the car more aggressively.

With our cars, the same may be true, but the engines are designed to take the extra stress.

And then of course the later model non-supercharged engines tend to suffer from the intake manifold problem.

How much of an increase dose the supercharged engine give a car. I have never rode in one with a supercharger.
