I wanted turbos but was too expensive. I did mine two years ago. Not sure how it is now but at the time the turbos were NOT easy for a DIYer in the garage at home.

Reason I did a PD blower was affordability and ability to do it myself.

I'm not looking for the old argument between the two. Just clarification to answer the OPs question.

If it were up to me (ie..... I could afford it) I'd do a TT LSX with all the trimmings. But that isn't what the OP asked.


Our single kit is a true bolt on kit. Even our twin Turbo setup we dont cut anything either.

Wow, I didn't expect this many responses and debates while I was away. A lot of great info and arguements and I appreciate them all. I MAY be leaning more towards the turbo route seeing as they are a bit more fuel efficient using "wasted" energy from the engine to make more power. I'm still not sure though, The magnuson SC sounds really appealing also. So many to choose from i can't decide :/.

Chris-HPS how much do you guys run for a turbo kit? Or maybe even the Twin Turbo kit?

I am looking into the same in the future. I personally am going the SC route because I already have headers. I would say either go with the whipple (my choice) or magnacharger.

Yep...but it might run 12s too....just at 175mph. The car hasn't been down the track once yet....so it's still a giant mystery and this stuff isn't as easy as it looks.

Besides...he doesn't count...his car is more like a rocket than a car.

Don't let them steer you in a direction you don't wanna go, I have YET to see a turbo car build without and issues, sure they make power but yet to see one not smoke,burn oil, blow a turbo or some issue. For what you want a PD blower will suit you fine with room to grow if you want.

This. Even though they are magic...they are not for the average Joe to just slap on and forget...at least not in my opinion.

Superchargers have always been in my mind as a great and easy way to bolt on instant HP gains but with a significant decrease in Gas mileage which I know its a little silly using gas mileage and supercharger in the same sentence but for someone like me who still wants to use the car as a Daily driver, taking the least amount of a hit in gas mileage would be great. Which is why turbos kind of appeal to me being a more economical route to take.

In the end though I think I might still go the Supercharger route. I'm more familiar with them and sounds like less to take care of once its on. I really do want to add a CAI, Long Tubes, and new exhaust. Supercharger kits all come with Tunes I'm assuming, or do I still need to shop around for one of those too?

Not sure who told you that a SC will get worse fuel mileage but my car is over 620RWHP and when I drive it normal, it gets as good or better than it did STOCK. Now I don't drive it normal much but when I do go on a trip it gets 18-21mpg interstate between 75-80mph.

Either setup will be decided by YOUR driving style not turbo VS. SC they will both be so close it would be not noticable, where the turboo is more efficient is power and only when it gets up higher does that really come into play.

You know when I wrote that I was still thinking about the days when I was building my '72 Gran Torino and forgot all about how todays cars are so much more computer operated and canmanage fuel more efficiently.

I forgot Superchargers for carbureted engines are FAR more different than those of todays engines is basically what I was trying to say
