Your post does not make any sense. Sorry, but it really doesn't. The boost of power is supposed to be power gains? Yeah, Turbos are more efficient than Superchargers, they provide MORE power using the same boost levels. Long Distance speeds, I don't even know what you're talking about. I can tell you this though, depending on the course or usage of a turbo/supercharger, you can tell which one is more superior to the other.

Wrongo buddy.

Superchargers are better for low end grunt, whilst turbochargers are better for top end power. What do you need in long distance speed? Top end power.

The boost of power he's talking about is the no-lag that superchargers have.

Check again, I didn't say anything about long distance speed. And I don't need you reminding me what a supercharger or a turbocharger is. His use of words (or misuse) misguided me.

Yeah. From what I've gathered, it's a bit more technical. Honestly though, depending on the vehicle and engine, I'm better off with a Sequential Twin Turbo set-up.

I love the whir of my Supercharger.

And how my AM radio picks up the whine of the supercharger. LOL.

Google/Wiki the Lancia Delta S4. Possibly the greatest rally car in the world.

Most cars can do that. At least, in mine, it happens all the time.

I know there is a kit for the Mustang where you can have both the turbo and a supercharger. I think it was called the Hell Raising kit.

I'm pretty sure that's alternator whine. I get it occasionally too with the aftermarket head unit. The stocker never did it.

Really? My Impreza never picked up an alternator whine, and it has an aftermarket head unit.

Vivio's got an Impreza's Kenwood OEM unit though.

My understanding of it is that it's often caused by poor grounding, so an aftermarket or replacement head unit is probably likely involved in the cause, but doesn't necessarily cause it either.

I at least know it's poor grounding in my case, I grounded it to the shifter assembly because it was convenient. And the whine comes and goes, so I'm sure it's as a result of the wire shifting around. Oh well.
