Default turbo or na?

if you were to go with a turbo, what parts would be pointless to get? cuz ive heard some chargers replace air intakes? and whats better, turbo or super?

im not even goint to start up another supervs turbo battle

But if you do decide to go the FI route it depends....

Roots style blower you can most of the time use the same intake... and the header will be normal.

A centrifugal type s/c or a turbo: you will need a different intake and header.

We could argue forever about turbo vs super with no winner so if you go turbo

Dont buy an intake or a header. The turbo kit will replace both of those. Doubt you were going as far as high comp pistons and or high comp head gasket but thos would also be a bad idea





turbos better,

if ur going to go turbo look into greddy.......u can buy a kit that literaly comes with everything u need. If u are serious about getting boosted dont bother wasting ur money on stuff just yet........save for the turbo kit.......it should get u where u want to be.

Like Pete said, Greddy makes really good complete kits, and they arent too terribly expensive considering the amount of stuff you get.

Personally, Im a fan of turbochargers over supers. Turbo just sounds so much fast (just kidding).

How much boost are you looking to run?
