What would beat what? What dissadvantages, or advantages of each? Price including all accessories you need to get? Any information would be great. I did a search but then tried again and it said I couldn't for 30 secs. You think I have that time? If there is a thread already like this, please just let me know, thank ya.

Supercharger; more reliable, instant power, less expensive. Turbo; more power.

Ryu basically put it down.

Supercharger-

More efficient and reliable for practical driving because max boost level is limited. Less maintenance required and supercharged motors will most commonly last longer than turbocharged vehicles. No lag as experienced in Turbo equipped vehicles so power response is always there, but will loose boost as you climb the RPM's.

Turbocharger-

This will produce significantly more power than a supercharger. It functions the opposite of a Supercharger so you'll experience lag when you first step on the gas, but will make up for it as you climb the RPM range.


That's just a few things off the top of my head. I personally will go with a Supercharger since I'll be using my car daily. There's a lot more in depth info that you should look into if you're serious about FI. Good luck.
