If superchargers were better for towing i think all the diesel manufacturers would be using them but they stopped using them and went to turbos in the 1970s and have never looked back.

There is absolutely no application where a supercharger is going to out perform a turbo.

It comes down to what you like.I personally would rather just keep an eye on the egt guage than have to worry about belt tensioners, 8 or 10 rib set ups with all the pulleys, and worrying about belt slipage.
I had better words to use, but I have to look professional, lol

Well - I'm not going to argue with guys who've had the results you have I can't think of any diesels have have SCs... I think I can be honest and say that I just lean more toward SCs, though I totally recognize turbos being AT LEAST equals in terms of power and efficiency.
