Lol. um.. usually the question is turbo or supercharge. but between two turbos and supercharge? thats like betting "edge" on a coin toss :)

Darrel knows his stuff. TT is the way to go.

are you even going to build the motor?it is all really personal preference because there are some very nice supercharger units out there that are alot cheaper than a turbo.

superchargers are not cheaper then turbos....

Turbo kits are to be had cheaper the superchargers and you get just about everything you need to do a turbo including supporting mods such as fuel and suspension

Yes, the question was opinionated slightly. but he said he want driveability as well.. and turbos are best for that since they have wastegates. open the wastegates and it becomes a friendly beast for grocery shopping.

now.. im not dissing superchargers, they do make nice cars

Depends...

Turbos will likely make more average power and more peak power. But a lot more goes into a turbo kit and you have to deal with lots of heat.

^ I feel those two areas should be addressed before any poweradder. Especially with a fox platform....Just my .02 cents.

you need to decide how much power you want, how you want to drive it, and build/blueprint an engine accordingly
