VCT, S/C or Turbo

When going forced induction for the VCT, what would be the better choice of a S/C or Turbo for the engine.

I have my thoughts that the Turbo would be better with the VCT being a higher reving engine but Im not too sure...

Re: VCT, S/C or Turbo

I've looked into this a fair bit, easy answer in the end. Turbo!

The VCT likes to rev....so do turbos.......perfect match! When that cam changes..... OH MY!!! (tm)

Re: VCT, S/C or Turbo

Yes Im intrigued by this also. Would a TSA stage 1 or 2 kit by the best setup for ease or would a custom setup be a better option.

I have seen a powerdyne CAPA setup on an XR6 VCT before and he was making 270kw at the flywheel on a stock engine, so it can be done that way, but from what that guy did, he didnt get much change from 9k. But reliable as.

How reliable are the TSA kits on a VCT and how much power are you expected to get with a setup like that compared to a CAPA setup?

Re: VCT, S/C or Turbo

The TSA kit? Is that the 4,500 turbo kit that apparently bolts straight on?

I've seen an AU XR6 get 160kw at the rears with one, but it required some serious tuning and adjustment. Dunno if it was just that particular example or not, though.

Re: VCT, S/C or Turbo

I have spoken to Mal about his stage 2 TSA turbo kit he had. He said it was fitted, tuned and ready to drive out the door for about $7K. To me thats actually some exceptional bang for your buck. I can't exactly remember the end power but I think it was 175rwkw.

Yes, 175rwkw isnt earth shattering in itself but you forget to take into account the fact that its pretty much available from about 2000rpm and has a torque curve fatter than Kerry Packers wallet! In the end that 175rwkw is one hell of a punch... a long way ahead of 160rwkw n/a and probably similar in price.

Re: VCT, S/C or Turbo

If you check the april edition of street machine, there is an article on cappa super chargers for the BA six, the standard xt ute used, put out 258 rwkw for $7k.
There is a cheaper version with no intercooler, it has 227rwkw, for $5k.
