That link should provide basic knowledge of how a turbo works. I think it also provides some info on how a super charger works also.

The next time you have a general question like this, please do a search. It has been discussed before numerous times. smile

LOL, don't let these guys get to you. They need to get laid.
The supercharger for the GTS is only pulling an etra 40 to the wheels. As fo turbo, you can be expecting to be in the 200s at the wheels. GTS will get around 220 and the GT around 200 give or take depending on the setup. thumbsup

right now a supercharger adds around 60-80 hp and a turbo 100-150hp
