With lag free low presure turbos already available, from big mfrs, with warranties any everything, Why are people still holding out for Superchargers?
P.S. who sells this lag free, warrantied turbo kit?Angel said:Well since I've been involved with the sc v. turbo debate for some time now, I'll elaborate on Kents post.
The supercharger and kit Kent has put together is exactly what I want, that goes for most of us. Keep in mind he's kept us updated for over a year on this board and asked us what we wanted for a kit and put just that together.
The only reason I can add pro-sc is that rarely a turbo kit is ever a kit. I don't need to spend 3k on a turbo "kit" and then spend another 3k on what I need to run it and keep my car from falling apart/ While DNTs kit with have everything but the clutch required to run the kit. In a price range I can afford.
I'm not trying to compare the 2 companies I used DNT as an example because aside from the rimmer kits, he is the closest to having a kit done. Yes other people are trying to come up with sc kits, but they aren't letting me be involved in what I'm paying for aside from a "we're working on a sc project', and I know how much money I'm spending with this kit.RalliTek said:[BAVO has COMPLETE turbo kit. no extras, 'cept clutch , needed. I do not know who you have had to deal with in the past. I assure you AVO is complete. Has warranty on parts defects. 'Lag Free' means very little lag. About the same amount of lag as a supercharger.(you should drive this thing) With 6psi by 2300 AVO should have about the same performance.
I had intended this to be a thread about Turbo vs. S/C in general not AVO vs DNT. There are others working on superchargers as well as others with turbos.
Check out the 1/4 mile forum..alot of us drag race...imports domestics and there's even one or 2 guys on here that race dragsters.RalliTek said:Anyone have any drag racing experience? I have always built road/rally cars. Seems like the big V8 guys run S/C. The import drag cars runs turbos. Any thoughts why no turbo dragsters? Why no blowers sticking out of Hondas?(or at least very few of each type)
