In Reply to: THIS MAY BE A STUPID QUESTION-SUPERCHRGR & TURBOS? posted by Chad Bleakney on June 30, 2001 at 11:31:06:

If you hav the dough you can do anything you want, but why??? First of all this setup will be extremely expensive, but more importantly you won't necessarily get the increased performance to match the cost.

How much power can you feasibly put into one of these cars? How much power is there any point putting into one of these cars. I bet the cost complexity of making it work wouldn't be worth it. With some tweaking you can take 550hp out of a 740 with a supercharger. If you were to do the same thing with an upgraded 750, you could conceivably reach 650hp and still be streetable. Why, then, bother with both turbo and supercharger, with added cost (extreme), complexity (extreme), and drivability/reliability issues.

My two cents - others may disagree... ;)

Some superchargers:
ESS (My favorite)

and there are others, anyone remember any of the other ones?


Ok, here's th deal: I would like to know if it is possible to have both turbos and a supercharger on the same engine without messing anything up....??? AND WHAT ARE GOOD SUPERCHARGERS FOR THE 740?
