cpz1987 i love to hear good news like that :)

Dcl2049 Autos are more consistent, can shift faster, and will load an engine more and make more power over the RPM range with a turbo versus a manual car.

cpz1987 why would a auto be better with 300hp over a manual.?
02-08-2010 07:24 PM
focusmaniaczx3 depends how much boost you got. if you're pushing 300whp then yeah auto all the way. anything under that and a manual will probably be best.

Bigfonsz auto will do better in the 1/4 turbo or SC

cpz1987 i am sorry but you dont need a RWD car to make 10's. i know a FWD car making 9's. just depends on how big your pockets are. but i really dont think u will make 10's with a s/c with our motors. turbo is the only way to go if you are thinking of doing drag.

03OrangeSVT It depends on what type of racing you're doing.

A SC'd car will be more consistant and easier to drive for a novice.

A turbo car will make SOOOOOO much more power and TQ at the same boost level than a SC that it isnt even fair to compare them.

djo90 small motors like ours would be much better with a turbo. Superchargers a great for V8s but not for us since superchargers take power to make it

mlbbaseball well, the only real way to get to 10's is a RWD conversion unforuntately. unfortunately as said before turbo >> SC for the 1/4

WRCwannabe get your car to about 2200lbs or so and then sc it or so and then you may get in the 11's maybe 12's
