Prefered type of forced induction

Considering that the 5.4 BOSS V8 will more than likely utilise forced indiction, would you rather have it supercharged or Turbo/twin turbo?

I say supercharge it because if you ad a turbo or twin turbo it would sound like some crap out of japan, thought xr6 turbo sounds good GTHO Turbo/Twin Turbo sounds a bit degrading to me while supercharging fit the GTHO name better

thats my 2 cents

Twin Turbo cos that aligns with the becoming very well known and respected XR6T.

GT-T

GT-S

GTHO-T

Then again supercharging woud be good too

Hey Cobra, whats the diff between GT and

Mustang Cobra R: 0-60 MPH - 4.82 sec, 0-100 MPH - 10.81 sec, QUARTER MILE - 13.09@105.55 MPH.

"Ford SVT Cobra R delivers 5.4L of DOHC 32-valve muscle. All this breathes out of a very low-restriction Borla exhaust that sounds like the starting grid at Daytona. Bow down to its 385hp (287kw) at 6250 rpm and 376 lb-ft (522nm) at 4250 revs."

A REAL Supercharger, like Minge says, a "Twin Screw Supercharger"

None of this centrigugal (turbo wannabe) stuff.

After seeing and hearing Rob Vickerys TT V8, definately Twin Turbos. I think it would be too dear though.
