In Reply to: what is better Turbo or Supercharge ? posted by M5(400hp) on December 07, 2000 at 06:58:46:

A supercharger is a parasite. It robs the engine of power and puts added stress on the crank.

A turbo runs off the exhaust pressure which is a natural by product of the engine anyways. Plus, you can control the boost at the push of a button and will blow a supercharged car away on top end.

Bottomline: A turbo M5 would run circles around a supercharged one.
