Help

Would it be better to put a turbo or a supercharger on my 2007 fa5 ?

CT Engineering makes a full bolt on supercharger kit for your car, we've had nothing but good luck with them!

Feel free to shoot me a PM, I can get you a quote.

Happy modding!

Thats more of an opinionated question. For daily driving the supercharger will be more reliable from what I hear. However with that being said I daily drive a Turbo Si and I don't have issues. I think turbo is much more fun because nothing says "Look over hear" like cracking into boost and letting the blow-off valve open up between shifts

Yes Thats right the k20 is Not the Best Engine for a Turbo!
For daily drive is a supercharger Kit perfect.

It all depends on what you plan to do with it. Like @dkaise4 and @Prymer were stating, it comes down to personal preference. Dependant on much HP you want, turbo will get you more than a supercharger, but this comes with that reliability factor. Turbo is going to be more difficult to install as you have to get behind the engine and install a new header, whereas a supercharger is as simple as changing an intake manifold. Hope this helps!
