I am looking into getting a supercharger for my car over a turbo. These are the reasons. Yeah I know a turbo has more potential but i dont want a all out race machine. Besides my car is not the kind that i want to beat up daily (i would have gotten a Civic or Integra for that ). 1)Very little lag compared to the output with standard trim compressor wheel. 2)Turbo Psi Vs SC Psi. A centrifugical SC produces a lot less heat which equates to more horsepower at the same Psi with the same size compressor wheel. This also helps control detonation which is a concern with a high compression motor which already makes alot of heat. This will also allow me to run slightly more boost than with a turbo. Also cooling effect would be a lot more potent with SC w/FMIC vs Turbo w/FMIC at lets say 12 psi (which is the max im aiming for on stock internals). Does anyone disagree that the SC would make more HP/run cooler/less chance for detonation with the same size compressor wheel? 3) Parts. I know i still have to do the fuel part to run boost but i dont have to trash my exhaust manifold in place of a turbo manifold and downpipe 4)There has to be a reason why all NHRA Top Fuel Drag cars went SC over turbo. Maybe because a SC has more low rpm boost, produces less heat and is just generally more effecient than turbos. 5) This one is for all you traction guys who say a SC isnt good for traction. Duh cause it makes alot more power down low in the rpm range than turbo. Just put some slicks on and with a competent driver who can launch properly, a SC car with 12 psi would smoke a turbo car with 12 psi at the strip. 6) Setup. With a turbo you have to run oil lines from the turbo to the oil pan and have to feed the turbo with a fresh supply of oil to keep it running. ProCharger has SC that does not require a oil feed. It is self contained requiring no miantenance. Anyone who can prove me wrong in the above statements, please do so as i am tired of the Pro-Turbo guys downrating the SC because it takes a little more time and money to set up. While i cant prove these statements with numbers and graphs you cant disprove me either .
