Turbo or Supercharger?????

What are the differences between the two???? do you get basically the same effect from either? or is this just a personal prefrence thing?

That depends on which SC you're comparing it to. A turbo is more closely related to the Procharger and Vortech SC's. Both of these provide a vastly different power curve than the top mounted twin screws. There are pros/cons to all three though. You need to decide what your plans for the car are and what you want from it down the road.

But for all intensive purposes...they force more air and gas into the cylinders right.... I guess what I'm getting at is, that is their main reason for being!!!

so I'm guessing that the different ways of doing that is what is producing the vastly different dyno numbers. I know a lot has to do with how much boost and so forth. Just curious if you had say 6 lbs of boost on a twin screw maggie might make 500 hp and 6 lbs of boost on a turbo or pro charger might make 580 hp...they are essentially doing the same thing right?

An engine is just a big air pump, so they are all about forcing air, hence FI - Forced Induction.

Hey Ronnie, You can get pretty close in horsepower per lb of boost but i think you saw from looking at the dyno numbers there is no comparing the torque numbers.The turbo is far superior in that respect.

As said before, a engine is basically an airpump. The more air you push through your engine, the more HP it makes. There are NUMEROUS ways to do this but FI gives the most gains. The different SC's and turbos vary in efficiency so that's where the variations in HP/tq come from. SC's are run off a pulley that creates drag on the engine. This is what it means to use power to make power since that drag will suck HP from the car. Just like turning on the AC but a SC sucks more HP. A turbo is run off the expelled exhaust so it doesn't take power away from the engine to make power. Top mounts produce near instant tq since there's litterally inches between the impellers and the heads. This can be a good thing or bad thing, depending on how badly you abuse your car. Instant tq will eat up a drivetrain but can be mad fun to have that much tq available that quickly. All of them produce a very similar HP curve, in terms of onset and rise. A properly sized turbo should make a tad more HP/boost since it's the most efficient and should be easier on the drivetrain since your Tq isn't instant. It does come on quickly though.

You have to define your parameters for superior. Superior as in more, maybe, but not in peak tq at lower rpms. You can't beat a topmount for insta-tq. Well, nitrous not included.

Superior meaning SUPERIOR.you can split hairs all you want but anywhere in the useable (and i appologize in advance if useable is not understood here)rpm band a turbo is going to be superior meaning produce more torque when applied to the same cubic inch displacement engine.

When you can make 300 foot pounds at 3000 rpm and 550 at 3500 rpm 750 at 4000 and peak 920 at 4500 rpm.

Sorry but you and granatelli can have that 2500 rpm and under stuff

At turbo will make more TQ and HP, you can control how much boost you run and use differnt turbos to achive your HP goal, it will also make more heat and may require additonal modifications. A supercharger will be easier and more cost effective but will have less of a fun factor.

First and foremost, a turbocharger is a supercharger. A supercharger is a device which compresses the air charge and feeds it into the engine. A turbo is a specific type of supercharger which is exhaust driven, while supercharger generally refers to just the mechanically driven type.

There are generally 3 types of mechanically driven superchargers. There are centrifugal type, which work much like a turbocharger in that there is a very high speed impeller compressing the air. Next is the twin screw type. These feature long screws which intermesh to compress the air. These are often highly efficient, yet are also somewhat expensive compared to the similar 3rd type, the roots style. Roots, or 'twin lobe' design opperates like a gear pump and has two long intermeshing lobes. This is what most people think of when talking of superchargers.

Turbo systems also come in threee main varieties. Single and twin. Sounds like just two, but there are two types of twin turbo: parallel and sequential. Single turbo is pretty self explanatory. A parallel system could be thought of as a true twin turbo. Both turbos are identical and can either feed into a common intake, or can feed into individual banks on V-type engines. A sequential system uses one small turbo and one large one. The idea is to minimize turbo lag and maximize top end power.

What is better? Depends on what you are looking for. You can get more power out of a single gigantic turbo than any other setup. But this isn't going to have the best characteristics for a daily driver. A twin turbo setup might be considered ideal ... until you have to do the plumbing yourself. A roots type blower is practically a bolt on, but there is a bit of a fuel economy hit vs most other setups. Screw's are good, but somewhat expensive.

You guys are all caught up on dyno numbers... what about daily performance!
580hp 650hp 390hp really!

numbers dont mean a thing unless the car can throw down in the street or at the strip! hook up properly with a good reaction time. etc.
my best at the track in Englishtown Raceway NJ 58*degrees outside that night was
12.4 @ 112.6 mph w/ a 0.42 reation time.

which im very please with! (until some runs a 12.3 or lower ) happens all day!

i have a question about weight...do they end up adding the same amount of weight to the car overall ( supercharger front weight, turbo plus all the piping, etc)? I am interested in force induction for a daily driver, but what would be more applicable for say autocross, where weight and handling play a part? first reaction is turbo cause it sounds like it would be lighter but less instant when you are coming out of a turn so then you would want a supercharger but that adds front end weight...am I wrong? i can't decide ...lol I don't even have my camaro yet..another question, when people mention turbo lag...how much lag are we talking about ... thousand 1, thousand 2, thousand 3 BOOST...or more, or shorter?

RPM Motors has a twin turbo setup coming out that is highly efficient. I think it makes over 630 hp with less than 7 psi of boost.

Like other centrifugals, Pro Charger can give you very high linear power, but I would guess that you would need over 9 psi of boost to achieve higher than 600 hp with their kit.

And the twin turbo setup gives a lot more torque at a lower rpm than centrifugals.

Also, the twin turbo applications on the Camaro SS are mounted outside the engine compartment, either under the front of the car or rear of the car, so there is much less heat in the engine bay than there is with centrifugals.

Good points.

My short experience with a centrifugal on my L99 was that when peak boost came on, the drivetrain, most notably the transmission still had to handle that extra power. And the centri on my car for some reason was not even making very much extra power, but still, you could feel that extra surge add some stress to the car. I could only imagine what a properly tuned centri feels like when the boost really comes on.

So, my point is that centris too can really affect the drivetrain, even though the torque peaks higher up in the RPM band.

In my opinion a roots blower would be more fun. low rpm torque = a blast. I heard from many people that they get bored with a procharger/turbo because they have to be going at high speeds/rpms to really get the most fun out of it.

Don't ask people on forums for opinions like this because you shouldn't base what is better or what you would rather have over what others say.
Unless your just asking to what others think about turbo's and blower's. Maybe I'm reading it wrong, falling asleep at the keyboard here.

For me, id rather have the low end grunt. The Camaro is already fast enough at higher speeds...plus i can't stand the noise of a turbo. It's like nails on chalk board to me.

When it comes down to it. Turbo wins hands down. You can make more HP, makes good low end tq, and doesnt hurt MPG at all.. You can control boost from inside the car.. you can control boost per gear to have have lower boost for 1st gear launching..
Ive had turbos for years and loved it..

Supercharger just cheaper and has instant response.
Love the sound of a turbo.. well and superchargers too

If you only looking for 600wHP range and less then supercharger prob best just because they are usually cheaper when counting parts and install

I see what you're saying but it's generally not the peak HP/tq that kills you going down the track. It's usually right off the line or within the first 60ft. That tells me that the faster your car makes tq, the more strain that is put on the drivetrain. Think about it, what would be harder on a axle, gears, etc? A gradual increase in tq or instant? That's not saying that turbos and centri's won't break drivetrain parts, just that they are easier on them.

What's your definition of highspeed? I know VRE's single setup as well as Fastlanes have very nice tq numbers by 2.5k rpm. 400/2.5k rpm, 500/3k rpm, 650/3.5k rpm, 730/4k rpm doesn't sound like it has to be "highspeed" to me,

As a LONG time turbo guy, i'm not doubting you. I was just stating that you have to define your pararmeters. The topmount SC guys will always tout the low RPM tq. Quite simply a turbo can't do that, while still giving the mid and highend punch. Whether or not it's useable is another thing and a matter of opinion. AdamST sports a KB that is running low 10's so that says a LOT. That's not saying that they are superior, just that they aren't totally worthless. I think a turbo is easier to get off the line and all things being somewhat equal will probably give the better times.

Highspeed as in highspeed, only time i mentioned anything about RPMs was when i said i like the blower more due to the low end grunt. I'm not going to be taking the car 140+ it's not needed. I don't need the punch of a turbo at those speeds when a blower can give the low end grunt i want, and will be quite fine if i do take it up a notch.

So you think a turbo is only good when you're going in excess of 100mph? I think you might need to ride in a turbo car that is fed by 6.2 liters of exhaust. You will be quite amazed at just how fast it does come on.

Nah, i think a turbo is better for people who want to take their car to the tracks. For DD's or people who just want the low end grunt whenever/wherever a blower would be better, don't you agree? Plus i love the sound that a supercharger makes

Plus, there has been Camaro's with blowers on them getting into the 10's. That's good enough!
