I keep seeing this cost comparison.... It's absolutely ridiculous my friend. I sell turbo gear to 16v guys every single day. I sell complete packages, just parts, complete engines ect. ect. ect.... they are NOT less money than our $3k charger kit.In relationship to lag, a good hybrid turbo will cost far less than the charger as well.
By the time you add it all up they almost always go near the $4-5k mark and you would need to spend this much to even compete against a twin screw kit 8v on the good old G60.
So back to dollars and cents, time and skill level of the customer....it is beat hands down!
