svt - What is better Turbo charger or super charger?

I have beed researching SVTF due to the fact I want one and have since they first came out...... I will ultimately build an RS but I need something to get me over the hump for the moment. I ride super sport bikes also so I know the RS will be a have to for me..... But for SVT is a good place to start..I feel.... But I want to know what you guys feel is the better choice a turbo or a supercharger? My current motorcycle has a turbo on it and is unphasable meaning I stunt as well as can throw down on the track..... now I just need to get an SVT and do the same thing..... Thank you for your input ahead of time!

I have a 2002 SVT for sale with my full turbo kit and it makes 326HP at the wheels 190 on 93 octane

STG4 clutch
Quaife
3 inch Exh
Turbo kit
tail lights
hood
rear wing
headlights
MUCH MUCH MUCH more

If thats not for you to answer your question in my opinion turbos are the ONLY was to go , nothing will give you the TQ of a turbo

Tom:

What level of Maintance is required for your STG1 Kit?

What else is recommended to be upgraded in an SVTF in conjunction to the turbo?

Turbos dont require any more maintance that the STD engine would , i do change my oil a little sooner and the plugs a little sooner but thats me

With the STG1 kit nothing , it is ment to run on an all stock engine , a clutch wouldnt hurt but isnt a must

I think turbos are the way to go if you want power.

If your after that extra getup. 200hp is good for you a s/c well be just fine.

It isnt about 200HP tho thats HorsePower

I says it 10000000 times its about TQ and how is a SC going to give you 200TQ

My STG1 kit will do 190/190 at 8/9psi ,, A SC at 8/9 will do what 185/140 if your lucky

TORQUE is the name of the power game , TQ is what you feel in the seat TQ is what gets the car up to speed , TQ is what spins the wheel, TQ , TQ , TQ , TQ

I would rather have 300TQ and 200HP than 300HP and 200TQ
