    Screw charge, Turbo, MPX, S-port. What would you kill for.

    If you are given 3 choices from our vendors. Knowing what each power adder is capable off. What would you choose.

    No dreaming either.


    Edit I meant to put turbo on number two. ARGh

    Turbo

    Turbo hands down and hold onto my stock setup just in case. Tired of high acts from the blower and dumping lots of money for 300 hp and still having to run the motor on lots of boost.

    You could run the car on 12 to 15lbs of boost and make silly power.

    I'm already 'in too deep' so I'd go with whatever short of getting rid of my current block.

    Number 1 but I can assure you I wont be spending 4,000 bucks. I like the supercharger vs turbo. Dont particularly feel like reinventing the wheel on my car now. Now if I had a second SC I wont hesitate to try a turbo for the fun of it. But thats a pipe dream as the one car is expensive enough

    I like idea of turbocharging an SC, but I like the twin screw supercharger even more.

    Has anyone run a turbo on a Supercoupe 3.8 with out blowing up there motor? Seems that it should work good but haven't really seen anyone with long term success or maybe I just don't know. Twin screw going on 5 years now over 400 rwhp.
    now.

    I see that some of the votes are partial to set ups they already have.
    So if you are one of those people voting, imagine that you are to do it all over again, and only have the options given.


    I also hope that the too broke option does not offend anyone, it is not my intention. I just wanted to see if you simply dont have that kind of disposable income or cleary are against spending money on a cars that are worth less then some of the options given.

    Rock the VOTE.
