I love my Sprintex 210+ kit. It's pretty amazing what it can do and feels like others have said, just like a bigger engine.

If I went turbo, I'd go turbo FOR the lag and sudden kick. I miss the feeling my old AW11 MR2 had with the TVIS system that gave you a "kick" at 4k rpm. Made things feel more powerful.

I like my 210 blower because when I want to have fun, I can, and when I want to cool face it past the cops, I can.

I'm surprised to not see more representation from the centrifugal crowd, I know there are a tin of kits out there.

Those sprintex kits are nice, not the optimal efficiency of some of the other kits but plenty of power and a really nice sound.

For straight lines, highways and city driving I prefer turbo. The zing makes boring driving fun. But for twisty mountain roads, SC all the way. The last thing you want coming out of a hairpin turn is to wait for the turbo to spin up after you punch it.

With the 335 did you have a built engine? Just wondering cuz I'm thinking of going that route

yeah, I was going to ask if you could define fun, too.

Crashing because you have too much power and can't handle it is no fun either.

It is also fun to point out that people whine more than your supercharger when they lose.

I am lucky enough to have some of each.
on the track with consistent high revs the turbo is king.
on the street DD sprintex just adds fun.
very hard driving on the street, you figure.
remember there is ALWAYS someone faster.

My definition of FI fun would be a situation in which the car ruins smoothly with zero hiccups and as little managing and maintence possible. Turbos provide your best gains but tend to have boost leaks, overheating and just more problems.

I think this would have a lot to do with your mechanical knowledge. Personally I would go with a sc
