Do you have a link for supercharging and the differences between Tubo and Supercharging.....

I would appreciate it, I like to do a lot of reading on things I dont know about if I ever make a comment about the subject, and I also plan when the mods come out to do one or the other to be Si..

turbo make more power over say something like a jrsc...which is probably the only company that may make the sc for the fg.

The turbo takes the exhaust gas coming out of the exhaust side of the engine, spins the turbo which then sucks in air and compresses it and send it through the fmic to the engine and adds boost.

The supercharger can't be cooled and basically gets it's power from the crank pully.

But turbos are a lot more maintenance.
