a turbo is just as good as a supercharger on the street. We(as a BC population) lean towards SC because so much is availbable for them.

Personally, I would love to have a turbo car.

the way i see it, a turbo needs to spool so you figure conservatively it fully spools at 3k and ur shift points are raised to 6k, so you only have 3k of boost, while with a sc you have boost from just off idle to 6k.

From a buyer'* perspective, 1200 for all of that is a hell of a deal.

use a smaller turbo...it will spool quicker, and you will have more power lower.
