Do this, when you post, look at where your posting!soonerman77 said:Well..........................
I'd start my search over in the forced induction area of the forums. Use the search feature and you will dig up a wealth of information. If you have cash and lots of it then work towards a turbo. That's all I'm saying.
SlowZX3 said:Ok, so you can't just ask if you want a turbo or a supercharger. Here's why. A turbo is going to give you lag and but kicks in at about 3000rpm and gives you more top end, a supercharger is going to give you no lag but no where near the top end you would get with a turbo. If you're looking for a quick 1/4 mile, 60ft. car then the supercharger is what you want. If you like the freeway, then turbo it. I personally am saving for the turbocharger. I love the high speed races and the track. So either way your car is going to be quick. But its up to you on whether you want top end or quick from the start and less top end. So its all on where you want your power.
It all depends on the RPM point that you are at too. Another thing that comes into play is your exhaust flow and manifold design. A well-designed mani will help your turbo to spool better as well. So, who cares what you're at when you're at 2k, what's your peak? I know that turbo's CAN produce good power down low, but what I've been trying to say is that it's all more relative. Your percentage is going to be not as much. Ok, so you make 125ft-lb at 2k, but if you're putting out 250ft-lb at 5k, then your efficiency isnt as high. Since a supercharger is driven off of belts/pulleys it has the ability to spool as soon as you hit the gas if it's designed properly.1turbofocus said:I guess it comes down to what are you calling lag ,You mash the gas on my kit even at 1/2 throttle you better be ready to go right then
If you think that you mash the gas and there is a sec or 2 then the boost comes on yes this is lag,But like i said lag is old school turbos and improper kit design
You will have to drive my car or one of my customers cars to understand what im saying when i say THERE IS NO LAG
On the dyno start the run at 2000 and have 125 pound foot of TQ at 2500 where is the lag thats more TQ than most modded NA engines at 6500 RPM and more than most blowers for the Focus do
So where is the lag all you nay sayers focaltech im shocked you would respond like you did i thought you knew more about boost than that
