TRD Supercharger or SF Turbo?
I am thinking of getting either a TRD supercharger or a SF Turbo kit for my celica. Does anyone know which would get me more power gain? Any info you guys have would be great. Thanks again.

well the TRS S/C puts down 166hp w/ exhaust, to the wheels. about 2/3 of what the S/F kit does, but... Warranty is ava w/ the TRD, not with the S/F kit. Im gonna post my dynos as soon as the TRD is installed on the 5th.

it doesn't fit without modification but when all is said and done the TRD sc isn't worth the price or time installing it (price and labor GREATLY outweigh the Performance benefits). kinda like the blitz sc for the scion but their's actually fits without modification.

JBing had said in another post that he was going to make his own custom Hood to clear the TRD Superchager thumbsup

what are you talking about? SF made the GT Turbo kit before they even started making the GTS one

bottom line for the two choices and there abilitites...

supercharger: low end power (torque, some lag)
turbocharger: high end power (top speed, has more lag than superchager)
