5 speed eb. Turbo Or Supercharger??

i have an eb 5 speed im looking at bolting up a little extra power. wanting to know what is easier/cheaper to set up. will be installing the whole setup myself and i already have a supercharger sitting at home. has anyone out there already attempted anything similar and what will be more reliable turbo or supercharger?

any help would be much appreciated

Re: 5 speed eb. Turbo Or Supercharger??

Depends what you want? For outright power a turbo can't be beaten, especially for street car..BUT they need more custom work to fit!! Can't realy buy kit and fit..
Imo just get a Vortech bolt it on then get maf and correctly callibrated injectors and your away... Just double check advance or timing at peak torque ? May have retard initial timing??? So it doesn't advance too much in higher rpm..
With turbo you realy need stand alone ecu as they have boost, power anywhere in there power band...Both set up right are both reliable..Playing plenty attention to "tune"!!!! If not your first issue will be blown head gasgets....

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

i already have my supercharger for it. engine will be far from standard when i go to put the supercharger on it. all i need help with at the moment is suggestions on how to bolt the supercharger in without removing my a/c compressor
