    Supercharger will giv u instant power off ur start, but doesnt get the top end power that turbo is capable of, it all depends on if ur a drag or a autox guy....

    Thats rediculous! Why would you port it that much. A friend of mine has a ported and clipped 10 degrees 16G on his 1st gen talon and its fully spooled at 2,500RPM's at 16psi. I don't think he makes full boost at idle. Have you seen his boost guage as he idles? It sounds like some :bs: to me bro!

    Getting back to the turbo questions...
    What kind of turbo makes full boost at idle, or even close, like 2500 rpm? Porting the head can make that much of a difference? Also, where is the max power of that turbo set up that spools full @ idle at? Wouldn't it be a tiny power gain?

    You mentioned he ported the turbo to get it to spool at that low of an RPM, so Brian, I haven't heard that much on that before, could you be so kind as to explain that in more detail? (porting where on it, why it gives such a huge benefit, any downsides?)

    if you want instant power on a budget and dont care about your engine too much get nitrous, or if you have a big enough budget a turbo, you can try drag, or fmax those seem to be the best bang for the buck...... and get rid of the k&n bullshit stick to the included filter... and if you turbo it make sure you get a new head gasket, and dont run too high boost, and get new injectors while your at it :blink:
