Yup all the time...:lildevil:

No generally In alot of peoples opinion superchargers are more reliable than turbos in almost every aspect.

not exactly, they just often get really hot, and then you'll end up getting heatsoak and loose power. beside they don't have intercooler like turbo to keep them cooler and their air. but they are run by coolant to keep them away from overheating.

Under regular operating conditions, an eaton supercharger will run very hot, while a whipple supercharger has a more desirable temperature throughout the entire rpm range, but they usually cant rev as high as an eaton can. My 2c

Coolant? THey don't run coolant, and there will be a intercooled option for them...
To add to this, usually with a s/c you can run an intercooler, or aftercooler to help keep airflow cool.

so in the end which do you think is a better buy a turbo or a supercharger
With our high compression engines its much safer to go with an s/c, the extra buck is worth the reliability.

strange, cause i thought only the vortech or jackson racing rotrex supercharger can have an option for an intercooler.

depends on whether its eaton or whipple, they have different effective ranges per model, but usually 50-250 additional whp, depending on stage.
