Depends on the application. Some cars seem suited to be turbocharged, supercharged or all motor. The experience of the flat-plane crank V8 fits perfectly for the F430 whereas the turbocharged inline of the Lancer Evolution fits the purpose of that vehicle. I am not partial on one or the other... it depends on the application and if it suits the car.

N/A atm i dont have the cash money to get a turbo kit for rx-8 yet.

3k + for a kit is expensive for a College student.

i don't know what happen at the first few pages... but damn, if you don't don't what is NA, Turbo and Supercharge... you got a lot to learn

it depends. turbo for fun car but NA for daily driving.

You guys...seriously? My car is Naturally Aspirated..130 HP and 135 ft-lb of Torque

But I planning to get an engine swap soon. I'm going to get 2 Boeing 747 engines on my car. Get about 2000HP each. Haha!

forced induction... BUT SUPER CHARGE IT! Turbo charge has more flaws such as lag, build up time and (in my opinion) super charged sound better that any turboed car EVER will.

I'd go for NA with better responsiveness on the low ends, and I always did think that building a motor is a lot more fun. Although it is not cheap building an all motor car you'll probably get more respect from other car enthusiast.

NA all the way.. whats a good exhaust for s2k? I only want dual exhausts that don't sound like fart cans..


lol fart cans... refer to like 20$ setups

get a SINGLE invidia exhaust for your s2k no need for dual since s2k would gain more power w/ a single


why the hell would you want two fart cans instead, lol exactly what yagami said get a single you do know that the s2000 has a 4-2-1 header right, in my opinion a second exhaust on the s2k is just for looks. BTW from what i hear the injen and j's racing intakes have the best gains I'd look into it IMHO, anyway up to you though, alright peace.

Turbos have no flaws. If you want no lag get a twin or bi turbo setup. Turbos have better top end power and they improve on gas mileage. Turbos make noise when in the power band and using high psi. Superchargers you have to hear that thing no matter how high the rpm are. Superchargers are for the simpler minded (bolt it to the intake and get a longer belt). Who really needs power at 2000rpm anyways besides casual driving. Why do you think turbos are used more in production cars?

turbos does have flaws. it does have lag, but that only happen if you stick a big ass turbo in a little engine. otherwise the response of the engine is pretty quick.

NA does response fast and good for a daily driver (not too expensive to maintain). but honest for a daily driver, the response time of NA or turbo doesn't matter much unless you have a huge turbine to spin as i said above. so even in racing it doesn't matter too much anyway. if you have the turbo lag problem you can always have an anti-lag system (if you got too much extra cash to burn). but with todays technology, even single turbo does not create really bad lag.

and for the who need low rpm torque comment, yes, you do want the low rpm torque. there is a reason why the WRC cars have a lot of torque at 3000 rpm.

lol... what!!!

seriously though when installing an after market turbo it will be critical to have to have higher fuel flow. Otherwise you'll be running "lean" having too much air and very little fuel, making it uneven may fry the pistons.

Turbo lag can be eliminated with a smaller turbo, bigger turbos takes time to spool due to the size of the turbine spooling during low revs.

Other than than that whats the point of having turbo when your not gonna race, manufacturers only put turbo on their cars to have better numbers on the dyno graphs. Turbo is very harsh to the engine, I've never heard of a car with an after market turbo raced every week last for more than two years...
