Whats up guys. Im currently deciding whether to switch to a turbo set up. I have been supercharged for quiet a while. Ct supercharger. Thinking of going turbo now . Just need some input and see what’s best out there for me. Not looking to get crazy numbers just a good reliable set up I guess . Supercharger has never given me any problems and I don’t daily the car. I’ve been looking at the rev9 turbnonetics kit from Kseriesparts.com. Anybody have any inputs on this kit? Any recommendations. Main reason for changing having some problems installing an aftercooler set up and just kinda deciding if I want that spool set up . Just wondering for now.. any input is greatly appreciated thanks

My honestly opinion... I had so much more fun when I was supercharged than when I was turbo. Yeah sure I pushed out 500hp turbo charged but driving it was so much more complicated if she did run correctly. When I supercharged (JRSC) I was always out having a blast even if it was only around 320whp. I also had a aftercooler which helped a lot.

It’s night and day going from my Jrsc to Turbo. Once you go turbo, you don’t go back! It’s the best feeling in the world other than sex when the turbo spools up....

What's a good turbo kit to go with for my type s daily? I'm trying to stay under maybe 4,500 dollars.

I've been looking for a JRSC but can't find one. Do you happen to know where i could get one or maybe one close to the quality of the SC? Thanks

For street competition, supercharging is pretty effective. You might be able to find new CT Engineering supercharger kits at TRU Motorsports International (317-787-8668). It's the aftercooler that might be hard to get your fingers on. If you have E85 fuel in your area you will generate even more power.

Sc kit, go with merc racing setups. For turbo. Go with Full Race Turbo. I heard Humble kits are decent too.
