Welcome to Forums..... Congrats on the 05 GT

Both supercharger and turbo chargers force massive amounts of air into engine putting out more horsepower and torque (easiest way to explain)

now Superchargers, they run belt driven such as a alternator or ac compressor etc etc and force air into engine

Turbo chargers are different they go on the exhaust manifolds which uses exhaust gases to spin a impeller, and forced air is put into engine.

The turbo charger at least older ones tend to have Turbo lag due to it takes a few secs for turbo impeller to spool up to max boost, the supercharger since it is belt driven spins at rate of engine having a more quick response in creating power...


I really do now what each is.. may not sound like it.. its hard to explain.

go to www.howstuffworks.com and type supercharger or turbo charger

and it will explain better than i can.

You have to research what you want and how much you are willing to spend... personally id go with a Supercharger...(kenneBell supercharger) which i think are the better of ones available.

Hope this helps

p.s. be prepared to spend 3-5 grand depending on what you get
