Aright thanks also as a long run do you think a d series can take the pounds from. a turbo cause the last d series I seen with a turbo a mechanic told my buddy that his turbo was going bad cause he didnt have enough pounds of pressure but I feel like he might have been blowin smoke to make a sale

Turbo kit, 6-8 psi is all you need, reliable and fun. If you stay NA with some bolts ons you may as well keep it stock.

You need to do some reading... they both have ups and downs. A supercharger takes power to make power, turbo can/will lag. Personally I think there's a reason more people turbo little honda motors than supercharge...

oh i know that the super takes power to make power so they tend to hit a little better on the lower rpm's and the turbos tend to give the boost later in later rpm's

That depends on how you're sizing it all up.

Well I ran the Jackson Supercharger on a sleeved fully built GSR with an Alanize race head. I sent my Super Charger to Endyne and had Larry do a full port. I also bought the LHT water to air race intercooler setup from John owner of LHT. My car made 282whp with the supercharger setup. It was pretty good but even with the water to air intercooler it still would heat soak very quick and had no top end power. I had probably 4 grand into the supercharger setup.

I than got tired of the supercharger and sold it in 07, I bought a used turbo kit for a grand and made 480 whp on a 57 trim turbo, took it to the track and ran 11.6's right out of the gate. I have had a turbo ever since.

I started out in 99 with a nitrous setup, then went NA for 5 with multiple builds and my opinion nothing beats turbo.

Perfect post. Here's a man that's tried both and agrees turbo is the way..

Buy a smaller turbo if you are worried about lower rpm...
