Forced Induction - Supercharger vs. Turbo Charger
This video was made to describe in moderate detail the differences between Superchargers and turbo Chargers, as well as describing the components, advantages, and disadvantages to each. Complementing the speaking track is a slideshow of related pictures and videos. I hope this video helps some of you curious up and coming mechanics to better understand methods of forced induction. Please comment maturely, and enjoy!
Turbo vs. Supercharged Camry
A look at a turbo 5SFTE camry and a supercharged 1MZFE camry. turbo camry is a 95 4 door, SC camry is a 98 4 door. Both have 5 speed manual transmissions, the turbo camry is a 4 cylinder, the SC is a 6 cylinder. PLEASE NOTE - I am not trying to showcase either car as fast - I don't really think either car is all that fast - it is merely a compare video for my friends :)

851 RWHP Twin Turbo 2004 Cobra
851 RWHP Twin turbo 2004 Cobra built and tuned by www.precision-autospots.com. Car is daily driven.
Update 5-13-2009 - The Mustang has just gone over an engine freshup as it had over 30k miles on it and making over 800 rwhp!! During this time the Sullivan intake was removed and a Ported Mach 1 intake took its place. It now makes 800 rwhp and 725 torque at 19 psi on pump 93. It is down about 25 hp on the top end but it picked up over 100 torque and 90 rwhp at 4500 RPM! The Transmission and the rear-end are still mostly stock. The car was just delivered back to its owner in Florida and it got 23 MPG with the AC on doing about 80 MPH. No new 116/93 mix gas numbers.
2008 - Owner reports getting 25 MPG still on the highway. No new track times and owner has no plans to take back to the track. After all, this is his beater ;)
2-24-08 // Car now makes over 925 RWHP on 116/93 mix gas. Owner called Precision the other day to say he handed a ZX-14 its ass from a roll. And it was only set to about 850 rwhp he said. Amazing car!
Now about the track times. Look, the owner had just spent a fair amount of money and these were the only runs he made ever with the car and quite honestly, he did want to break anything. Ford built a great driveline, but more than doubling the power output tends to make you carefull with your car. He was not going for anything steller, just a time. The mid 11 sec pass was on about 675 rwhp setting. The owner used to have a 8 sec. turbo Fox body, so he is not an idiot when it comes to fast cars. I have seen stockish Cobras grenade their IRS at a track so to call this guy an idiot, or rag on the shop for protecting his high HP's stock rearend and tranny just really is not fair.
