Re: Turbo or Supercharger (wacker)

Well what kind of engine do you have? If you have the VR6 you could be satified with a z engineering super charger, but if you want more eip makes nasty turbo kits for the vr6. If you have a 2.0 then atp has a good turbo kit. THe neuspeed supercharger is ok if you have 3 grand to dump for just a 60 hp boost. you are going to get more top end with a turbo because of lag. On a supercharger you have power as soon as you plow the gas pedal. Tough choice yes it is but, it all depends on what you want your car to do.

Re: Turbo or Supercharger (wacker)

EXACTLY...
i am doing research to decide the same thing right now. i have a '95gtivr6. Already did suspension, so after a new set of wheels/tires i'm going for the power. i have found kits @ 8vturbo.com that will achieve 300hp for $2500-3000, and yes the z-engineering supercharger looks good, however, you will be spending $4500-5000 for 270h (may be sub 200 @ wheels)
i will probably do the turbo so i can get at least low to mid 200 horses at the wheels
