    depends on aplication m8, if it were me cams and TB, more reliable and easier to tune up, but betta power can be achieved with the SC and TC, but i have also seen 2 cars, (focus and MR2) with both SC and TC!!!!! sounds fun dont it??!!!

    TB's for ease of installation, neatness and reliability (and sound).

    TBs are harder to install and get right than forced induction routes imo.

    My favourite is always gonna be turbocharging. It efficent as it uses already spent energy to drive it and give the largest power yield.

    Supercharging is cool and TB's for the mechanical purist.
    Me run tings.... not tings run me!

    TB's for sound anyday ... - but a would have to say a combination of SC for mid range and TC for the kick!

    Still haven't driven a car with a super charger, but there is something 'tidier' about a SC over a turbo, I get the impression they aren't as moody.

    Throttle bodies on something with a motor sport theme tho any day
