Default ITB's & FI

Im trying to decide between a turbo now and ITB's. This is on an H engine. Someone wanna help list some pros and cons of the two. Im guessing FI gives you way more power then the ITB's?

No its not the same, the throttle bodies still give you the insane itb throttle response

It is not the same you still have 4 throttle bodies rather than 1. ITB's are great for upper rpm range power and throttle response plus they sound down right nasty IMO. Also it's not so much a company that offers ITB's setup for turbo applications. I would look into metal fabricators, and custom one off type of shops/companies to handle the job. All that really needs to be done is the velocity stacks from the ITB's need to be fastened with tig welds to a plenum and to decide on the correct plenum chamber size to account for how much you are forcing in and at what rpm range you need/want to make power.
