Re: Turbo or Supercharge
Where did you hear that about superchargers?
Superchargers have the possibility of the belt snapping as well as putting additional pressure on the crank snout. A properly designed turbo system has neither of these problems as is supposed to shock the engine less. If fuel usage is a consideration the turbo is more efficient too as the supercharger requires a considerable deal of power just to drive itself.
That said a supercharger is much easier to integrate into a V type engine than a turbo is and the Boss motor doesn't leave a lot of room in the engine bay.
