I struggled with this problem for quite a long time trying to decide what to spend my money on for a car that I just drag race and I decided to just spray the car. I dont know if its because are single turbo setups for are cars have a 3" down pipe and its just to much restriction or because of the twins being mid mount and they just dont do as well.
It's all on set up, turbo cars take more time to set up properly for track use (and there is a lot less of them compared to sc cars), an example is dreksnot he is on stock bottom end with a agp kit and he runs neck to neck with a forged sc car that also runs a hefty shot of NOS, and he is a manual as well, plus this is a daily driver vs the 2 sc cars that can run with him are trailered,

I don't see that happening with our turbo kit and if it is, the owner needs to work on his set up. Turbo car's done right pull away on top end every time. Never seen it go the other way once.

Yup. Matching peak SC(HP)-to-TT(HP) is a comparison fun to experience. Not to say anyone is slower than anyone else, but it's all about area-under-the-curve during the power band (racing RPMs). The more area, the more power. Do the "on paper" comparison yourself, then experience it at the track.

i was looking into the turbonetics kit also, nut TT is very tempting. TT prob spools much faster also.
