Turbos are more reliable (IMHO) SC is probably the most reliable of the bunch.

It's not so much total hp, but the way it's produced. All will give about the same total number, given the same parameters, -there's only so much fuel and air you can cram into the engine. But the way it's crammed in there can make the vehicle more susceptible to breakage.


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.

Turbos, I think, are definitely a more reliable power adder than nitrous. They are alot easier on pistons and rods, again assuming the thing is tuned correctly. I'm not sure if the supercharger is any more reliable than the turbo however. I've never seen anything to point to one being better than the other, all else equal.
