which car would be better to turbocharge, and which would win in a o-400 and 0-1000 race with similar boost levels

Re: VK vs XY 308 vs 351

All about power to weight. Not just peak power but average- need a dyno graph to work that out.
Turbocharging a V8= pain. Lots of plumbing. Twin turbo ok. Supercharger by far easiest. Don't believe all you hear with regards to making more power with a turbo- it isn't necessarily true. Also, Supercharger makes more power low down so better average power. I think most people Supercharge- usually a centrifugal type but that comes with similar problems to turbo.
