  1. I'm partial to positive displacement.
     
  2. spray me silly.....
     
  3. Paxton Novi 2000 :nice:
     
  4. thats what i plan to do.
     
  5. i got the spray. cheap.
     
  6. One day once I pay off this engine i'm going with a dart block and a turbo.
     
  7. Had 2 turbos, want another :nice:
     
  8. Tubro is sweet because you can put a loud ass blow-off valve on them... I've never heard one come out of a Stang before... just gay hondas and some WRXs

    But once I have tha money, I'm going to get a Vortech. Alot easier and cheaper to put in -- and I've always wanted that S/C whine
     
  9. Both my cars make a nice whistle when I get on it and a PSHHH when I get off it. Turbos are unbelievably more efficient and just work better, period.

    Anyone realize turbos can make whatever boost you want and superchagrers cant?? Boost controller, wastegates. I can make anywhere from 7 to 25 psi in either car without changing a damn thing. How's that make you feel?
     
  10. I didn't see one big turbo as an option :D
     
  11. I'd think that turbos take way too long to spool for the 5.0. They're good in high gears, like on a dyno, or on a highway. Low gears probably wont spool the turbos until nicely into the redline. If you spend most of the time in low gears, you might as well have a centrifugal s/c.
     
  12. Exactly.

    Turbos are ****en because of the squeel and blow off, but the turbo lag thing really makes me feel kinda :shrug:

    Superchargers are instant power right there all the time, but just don't sound as cool as a turbo.

    All in all I want both cause they both kick ass, but if I can find a cheap junkyard turbo or a good deal on a turbo kit, im all over it.
     
  13. ...what about twin screw s/cs like kb,,,or are they considered "roots style"
     
  14. i think
     
  15. I'm gonna go with a Hellion Power Systems turbo.
     
  16. wow i thought more guys would have the spray since its so cheap......well kinda, the refills get annoying.
     
  17. p---a---x---t---o---n


    PAXTON!!
    :cheers:
     
  18. R- badges, man. You know an R badge adds like 200 horse, yo. Instant low 10's, just ask anyone who has one.
     
  19. i have a blower on my 88 lx but would loooove to have turbo anyday over any supercharger. thay make way more sence. more boost at lower rpms with less tax on engine.
