Higher compression will require more fuel, your talon had a much lower compression ratio.RSXtreme-S said:15 MPG?!! with a turbo in the RSX-S? nah....i will say around 20-22, cuz my Talon running 18 lbs street trim gets around 19MPG.
:thumbsup:Aaron97SH said:If it's a JRSC:
2. More reliable
3. Less maintenance needed
4. No need for turbo timer
5. Low end torque
6. Stock-like powerband
7. No need to throw out aftermarket intake and header(intake might need modification)
au contrair,The Tinkerer said:but a turbo should not effect you mpg that much
You have just opened up a whole new can of worms. A Supercharger is driven by a belt, like an alternator would. A turbo uses exhaust flow to spool up. Those are facts. You are going to get mixed opinions on which one is better. I really don't know which one is better. A turbo, from what I have read, requires a lot more tuning and adjustment, where as a supercharger is usually requires less maintenance, but a turbo, if tuned right, theoretically will give you better power gains. I'm going to stop there and let others jump in on this that know more on the subject than I do.....PEACE!!!scorpioboy said:hey guys, wat is the differnent between supercharger and turbo??????????? which would last longer?? i heard supercharger would last longer for the engine, is that right??????????
You can run a blow off valve on your SC to adjust the amount of boost you want to run.cujo799 said:that's what i want, a v6.
so whats a s/c going to cost me? Im talking about kits.
Any other parts im going to want or need to keep my engine safe? I have an auto does that require any parts (other than torque converter)?
i'm not going to be racing or anything so i will be running low boost. Do they make smaller s/c's for the purpose of not running tons of boost? Where do i find those?
Any thing else i should know?
