Turbo Vs Supercharger

Superchargers Vs Turbos. Without getting too technical, i’m going to break down this never ending debate of which one is better. So what is forced induction, forced induction is air being forced in to the engine. Turbos and superchargers both force air in to your engine, generating more power. Superchargers are units that bolt on to your engine and a belt is connected between the crankshaft and the supercharger unit. As the engine spins, so does the supercharger. This is where the problem arises, you need to have horse power to generate more horse power. If you are not careful with a supercharger, you will start to pull hot air in to your engine, which will create even more issues for yourself. A turbo is similar to a supercharger, except it has an exhaust housing instead of a pulley. As the car produces exhaust, it will spin the turbo, causing the compresser to force air in to your engine. Turbos generally spin faster than superchargers. So what is the final verdict, I have to go with the turbo. Both produce tons of output, not only do you get the cool spooling sound of a turbo, it doesn’t add extra stress on to the engine, but it’s up for you to decide.
