A properly tuned turbo is way more efficient and you dont need as much boost as a SC to get the same amount of power.
The reliability of SC vis-a-vis Turbo is in the manufacturers.

The 6 specific SC units have proven far more reliable, and there hasn't been a Turbo made for the six that's been in business for more than a couple of years.

TMA-Turbo has been around for around 1.5 years, so we'll see if they're still there next year.

The backpressure and blowing head gaskets has been the issue.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
