In short, supercharged. I'm all about response. I'd rather have 50 less bhp if I can have it now instead of a second later.

I'm actually not that much into F/I at all, but at least supercharging feels most like Naturally Aspirated.

I am going to just close this thread. This question has been asked literally 100's of times in the past, if not more.

Please use the SEARCH button at the top/middle of the screen under the pictures of the cars and you'll find a TON of threads on this.
