Turbo vs. Blower/Supercharger?

After I saw this, My choice got even harder.. 602 hp at the wheel, is a lot of power.

As far as looks go I give a...0. I think I would take the S/C just because it looks better. I think I could live with 500hp. ( for a little while)

Just because teh peak hp is 602 doesnt mean its going to be faster. What does the torque curve look like ?

I have not seen the Dyno for this turbo, but read some about it on some webpage witch lead me to it. But $4500 vs. $6000 for a Magnuson SuperCharger. here is some links...

I think the back tailpipe looks like death. the supercharger looks like a lot better build quality.

Anyone seen the front page on SLPs website? 421 bolt on hp for 04 GTOs. No other info on the page. Smells like a blower to me. Anyone have any good info on this???

Don't know about the power output but have never seen such a "remote" setup. I'm no turbo expert but I suspect this system would be suseptable to turbo "wait" rather than mere turbo "lag".
Also seems a waste to have 15ft of intake tubing & I can't see an intercooler.

Yep, the SC seems to be the more aesthetically pleasing option, and the turbo kit looks done by amateurs. The extra power of the turbo doesn't make up for the fact of how awful it looks. I'd go with a procharger myself...when I get the extra moolah.

Hmm,, A blower sounds better to.
How many horsepower is this engine built for, before I need to do internal changes?

with boost your would be smart to get stronger connecting rods pistons springs and pushrods... the stock crank is good for 1000+ rwhp
