Actually, turbos work better for four cylinder and small displacement engines because there is parasitic loss with a supercharger and it's better not to give up the power when the smaller diplacement engine doesn't make that much. It's fine to have an opinion. Just make sure if you have an opinion, its a welll-informed one. Please read the thread too. I mentioned this.

I disagree, but that's ok. 250hp is 250hp no matter what engine or power adder it has.

Yea rather than flaming on site you should take time to educate yourself so that you can actually make a valid point.

My turbo lag is your courtesy head start.

Well, I think what i mean is there is more room for power increase than with a supercharger not taking into account internals and supporting mods for both routes.

Well it's certainly simpler to a point considering you can do it with a boost controller compared to changing pulleys with a supercharger. However just like superchagers, turbos have their limit of efficiency as well. There are several turbo cars (US GEN 2 WRX, turbo cobalt, MSP, MS3) that are already very close to their turbos peak range on the stock turbo so you will start to fall into the same troubles we LSJ guys have with the M62 and that's you are creating more heat then it's worth for the airflow you are getting.

"The Turbo
A turbo charger is similar to a turbocharger"

Superchargers are great for big displacement engines that don't rev high. Four cylinders use turbos ore effectively because they usually rev higher.

Very well said, I agree. The supers help the V8's make more power throughout the whole powerband, whereas the turbo allows for the four cylinders to make more faster and a lot easier

M62 Powered for Now
