SC vs. turbo in autoX
 
i hope to do some autoX-ing either this seson or start next... but i would like to have just a lil more "epmff" in my SVT nothing major for a drag strip but just a lil for shorter runs.. so would a JRSC be better or should i spend the money and get it turbo-ed..

JRSC would be great for auto-x but you could go with a small turbo too, but im voting SC just because of the instance boost where a turbo would have to spoll up.

I agree with Blackcatn2o, I think the spool time would suck for autox. I think it would be easier to get a feel for the track with the "always on" power.

Personally, I would buy hoosiers and light wheels, same cost, will make you faster.

^ x2, I'd rather feel lateral G's in a corner any day.

thats no longer a point to bring up. with the designs of newer turbos the boost is almost instant.

turbo lag is a thing of the past

I wouldn't say that...if you put a big turbo on a small engine...it can have the best design, but you will definitelly feel some lag
