depends on the car and style of driving.

im not a big fan of putting a turbo on a car that didnt come with one, such as a honda. the sound of a properly build NA honda is beautiful. they can also do very well in races (not so much drag...but there's more to life than straight lines anyways right?)

though i do love my turbo cars. but each has its advantages and disadvantages in a road or togue race. it all comes down to build really...

is this a duplicate?

how bout putting both of them together and get a twin-charged

you win both ways...

imo there really isnt a best for a certain car, imo supercharged vtec = good combination of low end and high end(vtec), since supercharged is instant power and loses high end, then the vtec kicks in so you dont lose power at any revs pretty much, and boosting for the honda well you get the idea of vtec + boost = high end power some people like that, i just like my car responsive so
it just depends on what you prefer.. (out of turbo you can probably squeeze out a bit more power than a supercharge can)

I believe that is a horrible design. Supercharger on a honda. When the supercharger goes out of its effiecency range it starts to blow nothing but hot air up top. Most superchargers are centrifical which base's boost pressure by rpm much like a turbo. Meaning the supercharger is leaching power from your motor and gives very little low end like a traditional roots but gives you mid and some top.

i really enjoy the feeling of driving a built N/A great response...but i LOVE the sound of a nice BOV and the "kick" when ur boostin...and for supercharger?...i dont like the idea of using another pulley to power my car...and the sound of the vtec n supercharger...is like driving ur honda in reverse...but times 10

Supercharger + VTEC = truckloads of fail.

Supercharged Hondas are a novel idea because no one does it. My lawn mower probably makes more torque than any Honda engine below 5 grand. Giving it power down low and mid while giving it almost nothing up high makes it worthless unless it's going round some cones/corners.

Turbo + VTEC = Second coming of VTEC. Srsly.

For a Honda, it's either boost or NA.

wait wait...

the question was Naturally Aspirated vs Fuel Injection?
or does N/A and FI mean something else?

Doesnt naturally aspirated mean it doesnt use forced induction?
And fuel injection just means it uses fuel injection?

If I understood the original question correctly, how can you say Naturally Aspirated vs Fuel Injection?
Doesn't make any sense....

NA, my opinion.

but then in term of actually able to build massive power, nothing like Forcing massive quantity of air into the cylinders.

ehhh i dont like lag, it already lags getting to vtec and more lag for boost.....
my friend has a supercharged ep, and my other friend has a boosted ep.....supercharged ep = better response than the boosted one

but yah id rather go na on honda than any forced induction
